The Office of Strategic Services (OSS) was formed during WWII to coordinate espionage activities for all branches of the Armed Forces. It transitioned into the **CIA** after the War.
In one of the clips of her speeches which Fox has been showing, she talks about having top security clearance and how people were confused as to whether she was in Afghanistan as military or as a journalist.
She is a also candidate for a Ph.D. in War Studies at King’s College London. On Greta last night, Petraeus’ former aide mentioned that the “affair” began after he left the military and that the book was originally supposed to be about something else (war strategy maybe?) and only later did Petraeus realize that it was a biography about him.
***She said he was unsure of himself sometimes. She said he was concerned about the publics perception of him.*** Sounds like he was the perfect candidate for emotional entanglement and then blackmail.
I really don’t think this is about an “affair,” but about espionage.
“***She said he was unsure of himself sometimes. She said he was concerned about the publics perception of him.*** Sounds like he was the perfect candidate for emotional entanglement and then blackmail.”
“He is very, very down right now.”

Gen. David Petraeus, who has stepped down from his position as director of the CIA over an extramarital affair, said this week that he screwed up big-time, a close friend of the generals told CNN.
You know, he expressed deep regret for what happened, the damage he had done and the pain he had caused his family, said Ret. Col. Peter Mansoor, who served with Petraeus in Iraq. He called his action morally reprehensible and said, in his words, I screwed up big-time. And boy did he ever.
Mansoor, speaking on CNNs Out Front Tuesday evening, said Petraeus loved his position at the CIA.
He really enjoyed his job at the CIA, it was the best job in the world, as far as he was concerned, Mansoor told CNNs Erin Burnett. He had a good relationship with the president and national security team, and he threw that all away for due to a personal failing. He is very, very down right now.
