A federal investigation of how David H. Petraeus’s biographer obtained numerous classified records is focusing on whether the retired general’s staff gave her sensitive documents at his instruction, according to federal officials familiar with the inquiry.

Petraeus and Broadwell have told FBI investigators that Petraeus did not provide her with classified information, law enforcement officials said. Attorneys for the two declined to respond to specific questions for this article, as did Broadwell’s spokeswoman, Dee Dee Myers of the Glover Park Group.

Destroying the U.S. military is one plank in the Marxist blueprint for occupied America.

Watch this. The clinton machine is rolling. Since Benghazi happened, I have believed it was a classic clinton op and would have worked had it not been for the unforeseen intervention of the two ex Navy SEALs and Walid Shoebat.
With every day that passes and the extreme stupidity of obama and his ineptness, I have believed it even more. obama has completely bungled this from day one and now enter the pros to clean up his mess.
It was hillary who personally chose Chris Stevens for his position, not obama. This op was set in motion many months ago, very carefully planned to kill several birds with one stone and no one would have been the wiser...but it had to proceed perfectly and it didn’t.

We do need to find out how she received secret material. Certainly you agree with that I hope. To give a civilian classified material could be considered treason especially to a woman who is clearly not authorized and could be against the US....we don’t know for sure.

The government hasn’t said anything about what was on Broadwell’s computer except that it was schedules and PowerPoint presentations. Remember, the government “asked” to see Broadwell’s computer. She let them see her computer and go into her house. Some classified material may only need to be classified for a specified time frame. The government made a point of telling everyone that Broadwell had classified data on her computer. Why? The government has no problem telling people “We’re still investigating”.

I believe that the post-election search of Broadwell’s home and her computers at home was to seize any evidence she had that would support the post-election revelation of her Denver talk at which she disclosed the suspicion that CIA detentions of Islamists had triggered the Benghazi attacks.

Broadwell made the Denver statements after she had been confronted with the affair and she had to know they were classified, but the Obama Admin, CIA and DIA didn't get wind of her Denver statements until after the election.

I would also point out that people talk about "classified records" and "classified data" but they do not talk about classified documents. There is a lot of data floating around that the government regards as classified which comes from legitimate unclassified sources.

To present date, I have seen no report that she was in possession of any classified document, which specifically means a document that has the requisite markings that it has been appropriately classified by someone with the authority to do so.

I agree totally with the following statement which is from my friend Beverly Perlson:

Let’s stop making excuses for General Petraeus. He is disgraceful and has been for a long time. If that makes you uncomfortable, too bad. Michael Behenna is real uncomfortable in his jail cell in Leavenworth too. Kelly Stewart will suffer his entire life with “sex offender” emblazoned on his back and stripped of all the medals and benefits HE EARNED while Petraeus will ride off into the sunshine!

General Petraeus came out verbally and blamed the murder of our fellow Americans on a video. As much as the Congressman on the hill “Can’t explain that first statement by the General and it troubles them so” let’s all be honest about the wimpy behavior of General Petraeus. After all, he ended up changing his report after he found out the boss was going to throw him under the bus. He found out he is expendable.

The truth is the truth! Petraeus is in the same camp with his boss because he chose to be there. He didn’t tell the boss NO, we’re not sending Soldiers out on foot patrol to risk their lives and make an ass out of them to appease you and your brothers! He sure didn’t step in and help Michael Behenna or Kelly Stewart, nope, he didn’t and sure wouldn’t take a stand for his underling boots on the ground brothers. Tough for them. And like the Lt Col told me at dinner with an audience, Michael was tried 3 times and you have to consider what that jury saw that convicted him three times. We didn’t get into Kelly Stewart but I’m sure he would say the same thing about Kelly and the evidence the jury saw that convicted him 3 times. You lying Lt Col, you know and I know it is the evidence the jury DIDN’T HEAR that would have mattered and it is time Lt Colonels AND ALL THE BRASS SUPPORTED THOSE BOOTS ON THE GROUND BROTHERS OF THEIRS that they say they love and honor who are risking their lives and limbs living a failed policy they all support, from afar!

President Obama is in Thailand, called a press conference, said he condemns bombs dropping on Israel, BUT HE DIDN”T SAY HE WOULD IMMEDIATELY STOP SENDING MONEY to HAMAS.

If you have any Jewish friends who voted for Obama, well, actions have consequences, tell them to call Obama if they are upset about the bombing of Israel and make sure you let them know you voted for Israel when you voted for Romney.

Here in Illinois, I have family who live in Cook County and in January taxes will upset them more than me as I live in DuPage County. When they whine and complain, I will ask them who they voted for and tell them elections have consequences. At Christmas when my generous heart normally celebrates the hard work my family endures all year long and I lavish gifts on those I love, well, for those in my family who voted for Obama, they will have to suffer the consequences of their actions as I have to tighten my belt now because they voted for Obama to steal money from me and my hard working fellow Americans.

Behaviors have consequences, especially reckless behavior. An underling boots on the ground Soldier told me it’s KARMA.
