Posted on 11/09/2012 5:34:15 PM PST by FreeReign
CIA Director David Petraeus resigned over an extramarital affair, according to a letter he sent to CIA staff. The news was confirmed by Press Secretary Jay Carney in a briefing this afternoon.
Slate's Fred Kaplan quickly reported that the affair was with Paula Broadwell Gen. Petraeus' biographer who was embedded with him in Afghanistan. Now, NBC is reporting that the FBI has been investigating Broadwell, fearing that she had access to some confidential information.

O’s government is running guns to drug cartels in Mexico and Honduras, running guns to Al Qaeda all across the middle east, and Petraeus steps down because of an affair they knew about before he became CIA director.
Because we can run guns to mafia and terrorists but our spymaster has to be squeaky clean while he does it.
Oh, darn! Now the FBI will have to ONCE AGAIN suspend its ongoing investigation of Jon Corzine!!!
Darn the luck!
Several years ago I had to take a lie detector test before I could work at a facility in the Nevada desert.
The first question was “Have you ever done anything ... WRONG?”
It’s gotta be a Honey Trap. I mean look at this guy he hasn’t been laid by a good looking woman in his life he would be lucky to get laid in a whorehouse with a fist full of $100 dollar bills. And have you seen the picture of the woman in question she is very hott.
How odd the title of the book would be “All In”.
If any rational people don’t believe that this election was a total fraud,
we are indeed Naive.
Agreed: Smelly timing. What a coinky dink.
OK, I real it all and the FBI accidentally found this while investigating something else, and they looked into it to see if there was anything being seen by Paula Broadwell accidentally that might be classified info. and found nothing. Petraeus has been sending thousands of emails to her evidentally from his office since the FBI found them.
The two of them had an affair and the FBI has found no cloak and dagger secret spy problem. It was just an affair but a CIA director can’t do that but he did.
YEP, how convenient for O. People are going to have such a low opinion of him now...see, he was not/is not trustworthy, therefore, Benghazi has to be his fault.....
I always thought Pelosi had set honey traps on people in congress to “control” them. Nothing else could explain the control she has on them.
sounds way too much like the Edwards affair
I’m hearing now on CNN that the woman broke up with him months ago and he kept sending thousands of emails to her using his military email. Very bad.
After close to 20 years, the FBI has given up on vetting.
On the contrary, I think he was about to rat out the administration over the Benghazi affair; they attempted to blackmail him, and he decided it was better to admit to adultery than to be blackmailed.
She's also a US Military Academy West Point graduate who is married and is the mother of two children.
"Could you define the meaning of 'Wrong', please?"
The correct answer to that, of course, is "yes."
Not sure if Broadwell was a setup but yes, Petraeus is the fall gay for Benghazi.
They will out him now for the affair and they will claim that there may have been a security breech.
And the 50% of the people in this country who are sheeple will buy it.
Was Ms Broadwell paid to diddle the good General for an as-yet undisclosed reason ... or maybe, with the resignation, the reason has been disclosed.
I also wonder if Obama's victory on Tuesday didn't throw a monkey-wrench into a "blackmail" scenario that was intended to keep Petraeus quiet in the event Romney won.
