So the crazy just gets crazier. I still don’t believe for a minute this resignation is about the affair. Sorry, just not buying it.
(WaPo) The collapse of the impressive career of CIA Director David H. Petraeus was triggered when a woman with whom he was having an affair sent threatening e-mails to another woman close to him, according to three senior law enforcement officials with knowledge of the episode.
The recipient of the e-mails was so frightened that she went to the FBI for protection and help tracking down the sender, according to the officials. The FBI investigation traced the threats to Paula Broadwell, a former military officer and a Petraeus biographer, and uncovered explicit e-mails between Broadwell and Petraeus, the officials said.
Stacy McCain expresses some strong opinions about Paula Broadwell here. Twitchy also had a post of ‘cringe inducing’ tweets by Ms. Paula. Overall, are we ever going to find out why exactly all this came to light now? Even though there is a lot of speculation and now investigation into who Paula Broadwell is, I doubt it. One thing is clear, the girl isn’t stupid. Lacking some scruples maybe, but not stupid.
Smells very fishy to me…
