Seriously? His mistress wasn't even harassing his wife but a different woman? That's almost impressive.

I thought it was sailors who were traditionally the ones with a woman in every port.

OK; so, can anyone turn up another case of a married American political figure having two mistresses get in a fight that makes the news?

This may start to explain why he insisted on resigning, knowing this would eventually get out.

He shouldn't have started affairs on multiple fronts.

Classic military blunder, that.

My Army buddy assures me that in the Navy it's "Wine, women and song" on shore and back on the boat it"s "Rum, bum and concertina".

Admittedly he may have made all that up cos apparently there's some kind of inter-service rivalry going on there.

I feel bad for the spouses. It's bad enough to know your spouse is a lying cheating whore, but now to have the whole sordid affair dragged through the main stream press ad nauseum would be like another kick in the nads.

Why can't people in power have concubines anymore. Solomon had 2000. That's a lot more than 99 Kanye. It was out in the open. Book it, done.

We need a sleeze like Kenedy with the spine of Andrew Jackson. Just have the wife, the mistress, the pool boy, the husband, or a donkey. As long as you get your job done well, I don't care what you're doing in bed.

His security clearance. Aside from the honor of a Flag Officer, the main concern is that this leaves him vulnerable to blackmail. Head of the CIA with a skeleton like that? Very, very dangerous.

When I got my TS/SCI they pretty much looked into everything in my life and I had to answer a few pretty embarrassing questions before they felt confident that I posed no risk.

That they actually found out about this through a tangential investigation should be ringing alarm bells. Guy screwed up big time. Even if he is a personal hero, his shine is tarnished but I wish him and his family the best through this. It's only going to get worse from here.

America specializes in tearing apart their heroes, even and especially when they deserve it.

Pretty much this.

I actually rather liked Patreus before this and am personally disappointed in the man's action here and feel really sorry for his wife and family.

An intelligent head of intelligence doesn't make decisions with his little head.

The other theory was that the second second women wasn't having an affair with Petraeus, but that the crazy you shan't stick your dick into thought she was and started harassing her.

Main, that Daily Show interview is hilariously depressing in retrospect (and apparently it was obvious the first time around, but I remember thinking it was too damn boring so I clicked on Colbert before it got to that point).

Confabulat: Oh joy a local girl. Stay classy, Tampa Bay.


Still could be wrong:

A former associate of Petraeus confirmed the target of the emails was Kelley, but said there was no affair between the two, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss the retired general's private life. The associate, who has been in touch with Petraeus since his resignation, says Kelley and her husband were longtime friends of Petraeus and wife, Holly.

Anonymous source, sure. And I could be wrong. But considering a) Kelley *went* to the FBI about the threats herself, which would have to be either really freaking threatening if the affair was true or not true at all for that to happen and b) the crazy accusing her, well...

Benefit of the doubt, I give it.

/like it matters
//other than BENGAZI!!! and "Well, CLINTON did it, why is it so bad?" this is pretty darn entertaining
///well, y'know, careers shattered and all, but I'll go with the SO on this one and say that if you're the head of the CIA you should know how to hide an affair and how to keep your special lady (or man) friend quiet, I mean, come on, you're the freaking CIA Director

Whoa, every time I see her picture the words "BUNNY BOILER" come screaming through my head.

Convenient alias, another city, hotel paid in cash, rental car, pay-as-you-go cellphone... that's the way Petraeus should have handled her, not by having her be his gorram biographer.

Yeah, I would say the theory that the second woman wasn't having an affair with him is more likely, because if she WAS having an affair with him, she wouldn't have taken it to the FBI, i think. Most likely it's just someone he's friends with (article say she and her husband were friends with Petraeus), and the crazy lady went after her. Remember, they'll be going through Petraeus' email, so if anything was between them, it would come out eventually, and therefore he would have admitted to it.

it's truly in poor taste that this sewage makes its way into the mainstream. just as with President Obama's SS men cavorting with the locals or when President Clinton spent some quality time with a young lady, it reflects poorly on the country's leaders on the overall. school children are encouraged to keep abreast of current events. these are not the type of things we need influencing school children or citizens in other countries.

2. Because the Secret Service, the head of the CIA and even the POTUS don't get away with it and
3. The internet is for pr0n!

It has got to suck to be this Jill Kelley lady. She wasn't doing anything wrong and tried to report somebody that was harassing her, and now her name is going to get dragged through the mud in all of this. You know every right wing blog and nutcase is going to be claiming some wild theory of how she was working for Obama to discredit Petraeus.

Pretty much this. I'm sorry the second woman is going to get dragged into this as a second potential mistress when it looks to me like she was the one who went to the FBI herself.

And I don't blame her. The actual mistress has some serious crazy eyes. She probably looked at them and decided it was better to get dragged through the mud by the press than either be in the target of that bunny boiler herself, or have our nation's security compromised by her. She does not look like a woman with a level head and sober judgement, even above and beyond the affair part. She looks five alarm diaper astronaut crazy and I'd want the FBI sicced on her too.

Uh, I really don't think citizens of other countries are as pearl clutching as those of us in the states. With the exception of Bill Clinton, whose image may (and I stress the word may) have been tarnished because of the sordid details that came out of the subsequent and bogus impeachment hearings, I think extramarital affairs are basically shrugged at for the most part in the rest of the world. And I truly don't think the Secret Service's antics in South America or Petreus's flings bear any reflection on President Obama.

Agreed, except as a former army intel officer, she did have something of a professional obligation to keep her mouth shut.
 
2012-11-11 11:59:24 PM
Yet another theory: Other other woman was not his mistress, but the female half of a couple that was friends with General P and his wife.
She somehow found out about the affair and that is why the mistress viewed her as a threat - she might tell Mrs. P and Mr. B.

Maybe now we know why Mrs. P has that "I did my time" look. She's sick of this shiat, but can't be bothered to file for divorce.
