Not defending P but they held this till after the election because Bill Clinton was Obama’s top surrogate and then they trashed P after the vote to get rid of him.

While conducting research over the past three years, Broadwell was afforded extensive access by General Petraeus

Ya think?

I’d like to think that this matters...but it’s going just the way Obama wants. They held on to this until after the election and now they spin whatever the way they want. And after Clinton - who cares? And now the general will try to escape testifying.

I suspect Petraeus refused to be a scapegoat so they threatened and he at least had the decency to resign...but who knows.

I’m glad those who died in Benghazi don’t know the aftermath.

Wow. He really took the title of his book “All In” to extremes.

Still don’t know if Laz would hit it.

When you sign on with the Devil, the Devil will have his due if he gets the slightest inkling you are going postal on him. Obviously, Jarrett had this little gem in her bra and when Petreous indicated he had to testify truthfully before the Hill committees, Jarrett lowered the hatched and chopped off his head.

Sultry or not, she uses her vagina to get interviews. Another flucking fluke. And Betrayus, just another turd who floated to the top.

Makes sense, I always wondered how anyone with any integrity at all could accept an appointment in the Obama administration. Turns out he didn’t have any. He was in a position where 300 million Americans needed to have trust in him, and it turns out the man’s own wife can’t trust him.

Very very sad that he falls from respect for one of the oldest sins. I had much respect for him, but no more. It is incredible for such a fine soldier to fall for the likes of this. Good riddance.

Yes, and the chief executive of Lockheed Martin has resigned under similar circumstances, an affair with a subordinate. He’s being replaced by a woman. I bet that Obama appoints a woman to replace Petraeus, too.

This from her website.

I would add that Gen. Petraeus apparently had “extensive access” to Ms. Broadwell.

Sounds like General Petraeus was afforded extensive access to Broadwell.

"Paula is married to Dr. Scott Broadwell, an interventional radiologist who has saved more lives than she has. They have two very busy young boys, Lucien and Landon. They live together in Charlotte, NC, and when Paula is not on the frontlines, online, or writing lines, they love to run, ski, and surf together. "

Her hubby is a good looking young doctor. I don't get it.
