Now it seems this may have been a cage match between two mistresses. :o

A senior U.S. military official says the author who had an affair with David Petraeus sent harassing e-mails to a woman who was the State Department's liaison to the military's Joint Special Operations Command.

The official told the Associated Press that 37-year-old Jill Kelley in Tampa received the e-mails from Petraeus biographer Paula Broadwell that triggered an FBI investigation.

The official, who was not authorized to discuss the case publicly, spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity.

Another person who knows Kelley and Petraeus confirmed their friendship and said she saw him often.

To err is human - but to really screw up you need a computer.

Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done and why. Then do it.

What a country .. what a society .. this is getting better than a TV melodrama ..

And we are getting some details on the content of the threatening e-mails:


Ex-CIA boss David Petraeus’ catty mistress sent harassing e-mails to another woman who she believed threatened the relationship, sources told The Post.


The e-mails from Petraeus’ paramour — married reserve Army officer Paula Broadwell, 40 — so frightened their recipient that she sought FBI help identifying the sender, the sources said.


The harassing e-mails Broadwell sent to the woman said things such as “I know what you did,” “back off” and “stay away from my guy,” a government official said.


“[Broadwell] clearly thought something was going on” and thought she was in a “lovers triangle,” the official said.

And:

The love tryst, which began in the battlefields of Afghanistan, was only uncovered after the FBI launched an investigation into Mrs Broadwell for allegedly hacking into the general's email as part of an abusive attack on another woman who has not yet been identified.


While in his account, the FBI discovered sexually explicit emails between Mr Petraeus and Mrs Broadwell - reportedly including one which made references to engaging in sex under a desk.


Other reports suggest Mrs Broadwell split from Mr Petraeus in 2011, and that the general continued to pursue her with hundreds of emails during the past year.


The FBI brought the matter up with Mr Petraeus directly after being alerted that Mrs Broadwell may have had access to his personal email account. The emails involved in the matter were in most instances sent from the personal account, not his CIA one.

Paula Broadwell was the co-author with Vernon Loeb of All In: The Education of General David Petraeus - Patraeus' biography and she lives in Charlotte NC with a husband and 2 boys

Her husband (perhaps not for long??):

She was reportedly under investigation by the FBI for illegally trying to access the General's e-mail. That may well be how the affair came to light.

Oh for the good old days when J. Edgar just kept this sort of stuff in his secret files.

Along with his tranny kit? :ph34r:

The Americans should check with MI6, James Bond does not have this sort of problem with women and he dresses way better.

The masses continue to treat this as a smutty soap-opera...meanwhile;

Petraeus Personally Investigated Benghazi Attack


In late October, Petraeus traveled to Libya to conduct his own review of the Benghazi attack that killed four Americans, including U.S. Ambassador Christopher Stevens.

While in Tripoli, he personally questioned the CIA station chief and other CIA personnel who were in Benghazi on Sept. 11 when the attack occurred.

The Libya stop was part of a six nation trip to the region. Petraeus intended the review as a way to prepare for his upcoming testimony before Congress on Benghazi.

"He was looking forward to testifying," a Petraeus friend told ABC News. "He wanted to be fully prepared."

The trip was so recent that the CIA has told the Congressional Intelligence committees that the trip report has not yet been completed.

Petraeus' personal involvement in this investigation is one reason some in Congress are likely to insist he testify on Benghazi.

But now Petraeus is telling friends he does not think he should testify.

Petraeus has offered two reasons for wanting to avoid testifying: Acting CIA Director Morell is in possession of all the information Petraeus gathered in conducting his review and he has more current information gathered since Petraeus' departure; and it would be a media circus.

I believe the CIA was totally at fault for the death of the Ambassador, as they had assumed responsibility for security at Benghazi, thus when the Compounds were overrun, the CIA was scrambling to cover their collective arses .. bought time by feeding false intel back to the State Dept. who addressed the media accordingly ..

The Re-thugs are going to see their Golden Boy, David P., be exposed for what he is, and the egg will be all over the CIA .. going to be interesting .. I would INSIST that he testify .. were I the White House

David Petraeus is the Director of CIA and has access to US state secrets that haven't been revealed to the public. What if Ms. Broadwell wasn't a patriotic American trained at West Point with 10 years of military service? What if she was a spy for an al-Qaeda sleeper cell? General Petraeus could've put millions of lives in danger by giving a spy access to covert information. Ms. Broadwell had an unusual amount of access to Mr. Petraeus-she also had knowledge of other women Mr. Petraeus was talking to. I suspect from the little tidbits we've seen released that the General inadvertently leaked information to his mistress. If that's true, the President should talk to to the Attorney General about setting a legal precedent for this kind of thing.

This has nothing to do with participating in an extra marital affair and setting a good example for young children and teenagers. This has to do with protecting state secrets, Mr. Petraeus clearly behaved in an extremely reckless matter. Many of you will come out and disagree with me so I'll give you an example of how he may behaved in an irresponsible matter that could put lives into danger:
-Ms. Broadwell and the General have just been intimate
-Ms. Broadwell typically wears pant suits. She accidentally puts on the General's pants
-The General is in the bed. Eyes shut. (
-His cellular device is in his pocket. She is a curious journalist, it's her job to look through his phone even if she doesn't have security clearance.
-Ms. Broadwell gains access to information about a the whereabouts of al-Qaeda leader Ayman al-Zawhiri
-If Ms. Broadwell was a spy for al-Qaeda, she'd tell al-Zawhiri to relocate and have around a 25% chance of giving the US another 9/11 type strike.
-If Ms. Broadwell was a spy seeking financial compensation(aka Robert Hanssen) she'd sell this valuable information to highest bidder probably Pakistan. Pakistan tries to target al-Zawhiri but fails. Pakistan obviously screws it up and creates a huge international incident. al-Zawhiri escapes to Somalia and orders more US embassy attacks.

A lot of you guys are going to call my post a "stretch". Look at this way: The United States has been at war for over a decade now with no end in sight. They've got troops committed to Yemen, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan with money committed to Libya, Egypt, Israel, the Palestinian Authority, etc.

They've got the world's largest economy and the world's largest army. However, they're now an empire in decline with countries like Russia, China, India, Brazil etc. breathing down their neck and their allies in the EU declining. The next terrorist attack would be an absolute catastrophe.

If you're the top American spy and you decide to cheat on your wife of 37 years(The mother of your two children-a woman who spends her time dedicated to Veterans Affairs and Families) then you should be disciplined by the courts for showing a gross lack of discipline.

If he was a low-level US Congressman working on some boring committee then you can hoard as much strippers and blow that your money can by. Pull an Elliot Spitzer for all I care. If you're in an important position of power that focuses on military or economic strategy then you'd better stop and realize that you don't want to be the guy that turns America into a mid-level power because you weren't focused enough on your role in history to keep it in the pants. These men have all the power and excitement in the world but they feel the need to insert their wieners into any female or (in some unfortunate cases) male that comes within a mile of them. I'm a 17 years old male and this concept is completely foreign to me.

Petraeus wasn't just some bureaucrat that worked his way up becoming Director of the CIA. He was a potential President or Vice-Presidential candidate for 2016. He was in-line to replace Leon Panetta as Secretary of Defence in 2013. Instead, he decided to behave like a jackass. He should thank his "Baby Jesus" that his need bang his psycho biographer didn't provoke another attack against the US.
