    Wonder why Broadwell wanted to take the General down?

    I hope that the investigations will be thorough and objective. Concrete decisions should be made strictly from the information found, not sentimentality for personalities or their past contributions to the country. If sanctions against these generals e.g., revocation of security clearances, among other possibilities, or other measures are necessary, then so be it. The nation's security and its interests are far more important than any single individual or group of individuals, much less their legacies.

    But Broadwell’s father said Sunday his daughter is the victim of character assassination and implied the bombshell story is just a smoke screen for something bigger.

    “This is about something else entirely, and the truth will come out,” Broadwell’s dad, Paul Krantz, told the Daily News outside his home in Bismarck, N.D.

    “There is a lot more that is going to come out,” said Krantz, claiming he was not allowed to elaborate. “You wait and see. There’s a lot more here than meets the eye.”

    If she leaked classified information, she might have been trying to elevate her own significance rather than take anyone down. If General Petraeus gave her classified information, and we don't know that, he should be held responsible. That he had a distinguished military career and made great contributions to the U.S. would not and should not excuse any leak of classified information, if it occurred.

    Oh I agree totally...

    At this time, there is probably much still to be learned. Certainly, I don't have enough details to go beyond what I stated. I hope for a thorough and objective investigation and, afterward, necessary steps being taken based on the information found.

    Broadwell said that the CIA were olding Libyan prisoners in Benghazi and that was the reason for the attack..

    This could get nastier.
