    Those looking for political conspiracy under every rock should be ashamed of themselves

    You, of all people, don't get to lecture anyone on being ashamed of themselves.

    Someone needs to tell Fox News and Drudge that just because the general resigned from the CIA doesn't mean he can't still be called to appear before the congress.

    And who are you to lecture me or anybody about anything, pal??

    You don't have some sort of ownership right's to what can be discuss ed at a discussion forum unless you are Sooth or an appointed mod.

    And my opinion here re General Petraeus was respectful. Not everything that happens is some dark political conspiracy as some seem to suggest

    You have to admit that the timing is very interesting.

    I think they will subpoena him eventually.

    No, by all means, keep it up.

    Every single time you post, you unwittingly embarrass yourself. You're heads and shoulders above everyone here when it comes to lack of intelligence. You're vile and disgusting. You're also making a board that several of us use completely unreadable. We'd appreciate it if you would crawl back into your hole.

    I bet her husband is pissed though. Cheating on him with some old dude?

    Here is her and her husband on the daily show. He seems like an ok fellow. Shame he married a ho. There are actually a couple really funny parts in retrospect (moreso than normal I mean). It's worth a watch.

    So according to the NY Times, the FBI began an investigation when someone (probably Broadwell) tried to gain access to Petraeus's secure email, and in doing so they stumbled upon the affair.

    Sex under a desk is being reported. This should get interesting.

    I guess he was really the one "embedded"!

    If she tried to access his email, that means she had access to his email.

    What a dumb bastard.

    Sounds like she had access to "everything"...and he was All In.

    Just wait, next we'll find out she's a Russian spy!

    Did husband of woman named in Petraeus affair admit dilemma in letter to NYT advice column last July?
    http://www.nytimes.com/2012/07/15/ma...om-beyond.html

    July 13, 2012:

    MY WIFE’S LOVER

    My wife is having an affair with a government executive. His role is to manage a project whose progress is seen worldwide as a demonstration of American leadership. (This might seem hyperbolic, but it is not an exaggeration.) I have met with him on several occasions, and he has been gracious. (I doubt if he is aware of my knowledge.) I have watched the affair intensify over the last year, and I have also benefited from his generosity. He is engaged in work that I am passionate about and is absolutely the right person for the job. I strongly feel that exposing the affair will create a major distraction that would adversely impact the success of an important effort. My issue: Should I acknowledge this affair and finally force closure? Should I suffer in silence for the next year or two for a project I feel must succeed? Should I be “true to my heart” and walk away from the entire miserable situation and put the episode behind me? NAME WITHHELD

    Don’t expose the affair in any high-profile way. It would be different if this man’s project was promoting some (contextually hypocritical) family-values platform, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. The only motive for exposing the relationship would be to humiliate him and your wife, and that’s never a good reason for doing anything. This is between you and your spouse. You should tell her you want to separate, just as you would if she were sleeping with the mailman. The idea of “suffering in silence” for the good of the project is illogical. How would the quiet divorce of this man’s mistress hurt an international leadership initiative? He’d probably be relieved.

    The fact that you’re willing to accept your wife’s infidelity for some greater political good is beyond honorable. In fact, it’s so over-the-top honorable that I’m not sure I believe your motives are real. Part of me wonders why you’re even posing this question, particularly in a column that is printed in The New York Times.

    Your dilemma is intriguing, but I don’t see how it’s ambiguous. Your wife is having an affair with a person you happen to respect. Why would that last detail change the way you respond to her cheating? Do you admire this man so much that you haven’t asked your wife why she keeps having sex with him? I halfway suspect you’re writing this letter because you want specific people to read this column and deduce who is involved and what’s really going on behind closed doors (without actually addressing the conflict in person). That’s not ethical, either.
