1. Retired Army Gen. David H. Petraeus had an affair with his biographer Army Reserve Lt. Col. Paula D. Broadwell (nee Kranz). The relationship began when Petraeus was the U.S. theater commander in Afghanistan and continued through his tenure as CIA director. Her book, “All In: The Education of Gen. David Petraeus” is a silly book. But, at least now we know why it is so silly.

2. Broadwell sent cloaked emails to Gilberte K. “Jill” Kelley (nee Khawam) a Tampa, Fla., society hostess. The authoress suspected the Lebanese-born surgeon’s wife of romancing Petraeus.

3. Kelley hosted social events for Tampa-based U.S. Central Command, while Petraeus was its commanding general.

4. Kelley went to friendly FBI Agent Frederik W. Humphries II with the emails Broadwell sent her. The FBI agent opened an investigation. After discovering the emails were from Broadwell, he happened to read other emails that revealed her affair with Petraeus. The FBI expanded the investigation, when it suspected the relationship between Petraeus and Broadwell could have national security implications.

5. When the FBI took the original agent off the case because Humphries sent shirtless photos of himself to Kelley, he went to Rep. Eric I. Cantor (R.-Va.), the House majority leader. After the agent told Cantor there could be a cover-up, Cantor went to FBI Director Robert S. Mueller III. Mueller told Cantor the FBI was on top of the case.

7. Petraeus and Marine Gen. John R. Allen wrote character letters on behalf of Kelley’s twin sister Natalie Khawam Wolfe in her custody battle with her estranged husband Grayson Wolfe. Grayson Wolfe was a Bush administration official serving in Iraq and at the Import-Export Bank.

8. Allen was Centcom’s deputy commanding general under Petraeus, where he met Kelley. The two carried on an extensive and exhaustive email relationship that continued through his current tour as the commanding general of the International Security Assistance Force, America’s theater commander in Afghanistan.

    Nov. 20th: This is NOT about an extra-marital affair…this is just a decoy to take the heat off Obama so let’s stop…the liberal media did not touch the Benghazi story of Americans being murdered until it became about sex and adultery…is this what the traditional media are now stooping to???

    Nov. 20th: Exactly justinquiring…how far we have strayed from the prime issue: Americans were killed and Embassies attacked by Islamist terrorists while Obama went off to Vegas to go on with his campaign which shows clearly where his priorities are…he wants everyone to get distracted by Petraeus’ affair…and the liberal media is helping him as usual…and now the traditional media is helping Obama cover up the tragedy in Benghazi by focusing on Petraeus’ affair…

    Oh please — paleeese — where is the “deep throat” that can sink the Obonehead administration??!!

    I care. As Petraeus came up through the ranks as a commander, how many junior officers and how many enlisted troops did he levy punishment on for adultery, improper relationships, and conduct unbecoming????? Answer: likely DOZENS.

    This is the same thing they did with clinton. Who remembers what was going in the weeks leading up to the lewinsky affair??? Senate hearings into the China affairs. Leaked documents, super computers, outrageous security breaches and all sorts of other treasonous acts. The media, which saw fit to bombard us with Iran-contra every day for weeks totally ignored the hearings. ( except for Fox and then c-span, at the last minute.) Throw in a few b-jobs and the msm immediately comes to life. This is a deliberate act by them. It serves as a wonderful distraction to the ral CRIMES that are going on.

    Don’t get your hopes up. There were MANY criminal and unethical acts during the clinton administration and obama’s first 4 years that were totally ignored by the media. THEY are the ones who make a scandal a scandal. If it was a republican it’d be 24/7 news for months until the “special prosecutor” was appointed. It won’t happen with these guys, just like nothing will happen when the final tally of fraudulant votes and voting irregularities are computed. A friend of mine in Vegas told me about how ALL of the casino employees, (illegals) were catered to and provided voting access on election day. Millions of illegal ballots were probably cast and tipped the “swing states” to obama and his gang. How long do we sit around and accept this crap?

    It’s been tedious wading through all of the “affair” garbage to get to Benghasi and who knew what where and when but if I have to I will. I want to know the truth and if the truth is lurking in amongst the trash, well….it’s still the truth.
