Doom MD: StaleCoffee: Doom MD: Clarification: why would an affair be more likely to be an intel leak than any other person he was talking to? Did the FBI even know if it was an affair to begin with?

Well, setting aside the whole thing where if you can lie and cheat on your own wife then you've pretty much flushed your credibility as an honorable and trustworthy individual down the toilet, one of the women he was cheating with illegally accessed his secure email to threaten another woman he was having an affair with. The FBI only found out about it because there was a security breach that farked up.

Sounds like his email wasnt so secure then.


Well, that was the point, yes. Cheating douchebag breaks rules, security compromised.

Okay, I'm over my laughing jag over that headline. Now then, as to the ex-general, he rode the crest of a wave of public adulation as a virtual renaissance man, capable of bringing the peace and winning the war. The relevant fact is that he was a man, full of foibles and weaknesses just like the rest of us. He succumbed to one weakness and he paid the price for it.

cryinoutloud: He write for a British newspaper about how much the U.S. Media and Government sucks. That's pretty much his only requirement for a column.



Slight correction.

FTFA: "Instead, it takes a sex scandal - a revelation that he had carried on a perfectly legal extramarital affair - to force him from power."

Did Washington D.C. get rid of its adultery laws when I wasn't paying attention?

/I try not to pay attention to D.C., so I make room for the possibility

fireclown: He put himself in a position where he could have been blackmailed. That there is the problem, not the sex itself.


Hence the interest of the FBI, that level of stupid requires their expert touch! I mean, wth? you direct the CIA and don't know how to hide an affair?

The best part of this scandal is the interview with Broadwell where she mentions that she was embedded with the general. Oh, she was embedded all right.

What happens is a very respectful and regretful tsk-tsking of a Great Man who succumbed to temptations placed in his path by Great Evil.

And no charges, of course.

This is the other other woman, Jill Kelley, who is also married to a doctor like Broadwell and is built like a brick house unlike Holly Petraeus. I'm guessing she's figuring out about now that the only reason he married her is because of who her daddy was and what assignments he could get his new son in law.

If he will break his word to the woman he supposedly loves the most in the world what are the chances that he will break his word to you or me?
 
2012-11-12 02:55:51 PM  

sid2112: Because they risk their lives in service to our nation and deserve some respect despite the mistake? Maybe because they have access to the best weapons in the world and it's a good idea not to fark with them?


Jawohl, das stimmt!

OnlyM3: What happens when the media's never speaking ill of the military
Seriously subby ? You're actually trying to sell that bullsh*t?

w/o trying I could list 15-30 negative stories the press has run on the military/misbehaving personnel.


Came here to say this. leaving satisfied.
 
2012-11-12 08:45:58 PM  

fireclown: The not speaking ill of the military really only applies within a week of veterans day.


I was going to say... Where did subby ever get the idea that the news media don't speak ill of the military?

Do YOU wanna fark with them because I sure as hell don't! It's not about the character, it's about what the character can do to you.

abhorrent1: Can't imagine why he would have an affair.

[cdn2-b.examiner.com image 508x350] 

/oh right


HOW DARE SHE AGE!

How stupid of her, to be his devoted wife for 38 years and raise their children basically alone because he's never around, and be dragged hither and thither for his job (36 times in 23 years), sticking with him through his cancer, and then expect him to respect their marriage vows despite the fact she has gone and gotten old.

She should have known better than to get older. It's not his fault for being a lying douchebag with a roaming dick when she went and got OLD like that.

/Really, that's what you're using to excuse him?
//He's ugly, he wouldn't get close to those women if he weren't powerful
///And he was never handsome, whereas she was once beautiful

...
///And he was never handsome, whereas she was once beautiful


Wow, she was hot in her day. I wonder at which point she gave up and turned into frump monster.

I'm not surprised he played "hide the drone" with the hottie. I'm stunned they exchanged emails about it. How stupid are these people?
 
2012-11-13 08:23:04 PM  
Oohh, it looks like we are really claening house at the CIA.

Ciao, spooky Asshats.
