David Petraeus betrays his country

Paula Broadwell essentially prostituted herself in return for open access.

If the affair began when Petraeus was a four-star General in the U.S. Army, then his adultery with another soldier technically constitutes a breach of military justice that should expose him to a court-martial.

Given that the affair certainly occurred while he was Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, his adultery clearly exposed him to blackmail, and constitutes a serious offence against his country.

Petraeus has now been removed from his Directorship of the CIA – a position for which he was seriously ill-suited, as the Benghazi consulate bungle clearly demonstrates.

Betrayal: is the breaking or violation of a presumptive contract, trust, or confidence that produces moral and psychological conflict within a relationship amongst individuals, between organizations or between individuals and organizations. Often betrayal is the act of supporting a rival group, or it is a complete break from previously decided upon or presumed norms by one party from the others.

Someone who betrays others is commonly called a traitor or betrayer.......Baby!

The woman at the center of the extramarital affair that led to the resignation of the head of the Central Intelligence Agency is a highly accomplished, extremely competitive person who got to know the high-profile general, in part, by going running with him in Afghanistan.

Paula Broadwell met Gen. David Petraeus six years ago, when she introduced herself after he gave a speech at Harvard's Kennedy School, where Ms. Broadwell was working on a master's degree.

If the affair began when Petraeus was a four-star General in the U.S. Army, then his adultery with another soldier technically constitutes a breach of military justice that should expose him to a court-martial.

Holly Petraeus, betrayed wife of Gen. Petraeus, faces public humiliation.

Holly Knowlton Petraeus is the wife of General David Petraeus, who she married in 1974 after he graduated from West Point Academy where her father was the superintendent.

37-year-old Jill Kelley in Tampa, Fla., received the emails from Petraeus biographer Paula Broadwell that triggered an FBI investigation.

Paula Broadwell ended the relationship with General Petraeus sometime after he was sworn in as CIA Director in September 2011. "However, Petraeus continued to pursue her, sending her thousands of emails over the last several months, raising even more questions about his judgment."

Still, the White House, with concurrence by the FBI and Justice Department, held off on asking for Petraeus’ resignation until after the election.

A name used in the hood , to talk about a lame who tryin to roll like he hard but he really fake or a wanksta.

1. putting loyalty in someone, and them turning theirs on you.
2. friends stabbing you in the back.
3. the most hurtful thing anyone can do.

person 1: hey i like you
person 2: like you too.
person 1: see you later
person 3: who was that
person 2: some psycho weirdo

person1: now i feel betrayal

backstab :
Going and doing something behind someone elses back without the otherone knowning for some time.

Texting or calling a mistress while having sex with your girlfriend or wife in the doggystyle position. Since you are behind them, there is no way for them to know.

So called "friends" will act like they really like you, be friendly with you. And then goes out and make up lies to your girlfriend that you're seeing someone else and that he has been covering for you for the whole time.

LeBron : To betray (esp. publically) the way that Brutus did Caesar, Judas did Jesus, and LeBron James did Cleveland, Akron, and Cavs fans everywhere.

It’s bad enough to defect secretly or quietly (i.e., Benedict Arnold), but it’s another thing to do it on ESPN -- digging the dagger as deep as possible.

“Et tu, Brute?” That’s like not having the guts to break up face-to-face with your girlfriend of seven years, so you let her and the entire world know by simply changing your Facebook status to “single.” Really? Maybe it’s time to get the cursive “Loyalty” tattoo removed from the left side of your rib cage.

Cornfusing, AC. What's your pony in this race? Isn't Gen. Petraeus of the same political party as your erstwhile hero, President-to-Be Mitt Romney? Weren't you pleased when Petraeus left Pres. Obama out to dry by not covering for him on the recent Benghazi consulate debacle? Have you any proof Petraeus gave away any U.S. secrets to Ms. Broadwell? Why such venom? Was the general the subject the Rev. Voice's sermon this morning, or did Fox News change its official stand? What gives, man?

Info emerges in Petraeus case, Congress irked

FBI investigation

A law enforcement official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Petraeus was first interviewed in connection with the FBI investigation during the week of Oct. 28, about a week after Broadwell was questioned.

The person familiar with the investigation said Kelley initially approached a Florida field office of the FBI - not FBI headquarters - with a complaint of cyber-harrassment.

She had received numerous intimidating emails from a handful of different, opaque pseudonymous addresses.

The probe into the affair ended four days before the election.

Retired Colonel Steven Boylan, who was Petraeus' spokesman in Iraq and has spoken to the general since he resigned at the CIA, downplayed the question of whether US security had been at risk.

"My understanding is that she was only at the CIA twice," Boylan said in an interview.

Paula Broadwell said the CIA had detained people at a secret facility.

WASHINGTON - The CIA is denying an assertion made by David Petraeus' biographer and girlfriend that the agency held militants in Libya before the Sept. 11 attack.

During a talk last month at the University of Denver, author Paula Broadwell said the CIA had detained people at a secret facility in Benghazi, and the attack on the U.S. Consulate there was an effort to free those prisoners.

no charge

President Barack Obama issued an executive order in January 2009 stripping the CIA of its authority to take prisoners. The move means the CIA can no longer operate secret jails across the globe as it had done under the administration of President George W. Bush.

CIA spokesman Preston Golson said "any suggestion that the agency is still in the detention business is uninformed and baseless."

Extramarital affair with General David Petraeus

In or about May 2012, Jill Kelley, a social liaison to MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida, began to receive what she considered to be threatening and harassing emails. She contacted the FBI, who traced the emails to Broadwell.

The emails reportedly indicated that Broadwell suspected Kelley of starting an affair with General David Petraeus, who was a friend of Kelley's. Although the sending of the emails was deemed to be insufficient grounds for a criminal charge, the FBI called Broadwell in for questioning in September, at which time she admitted to the affair with Petraeus.

After Broadwell turned over her computer, classified documents were found, which led to further FBI scrutiny of her relationship with Petraeus.

Although Petraeus was not identified as the provider of the documents, the affair was revealed in early November 2012 and was cited by Petraeus as the reason for his resignation on November 9.

It would seem there are no grounds for criminal action against Petraeus, Broadwell or Kelley. Sometimes love triangles can and do get messy. The General behaved like a true gentleman. I'm not sure the same can be said of the ladies involved however. Is AC jealous of Paula or of Kelley???
