    So let me get this straight: All of them are married to someone else and none of them are gay?

    This was not a conspiracy at all as suggested by the Republican losers. This was all due to something Ted Nugent called cat scratch fever.

    Once again make a note of it, all men are jackasses. Some bigger than others.
    Well, not ALL men. There are plenty of men that don't do stupid **** like this.

    Let us not forget that these men didn't commit adultry withoit the help of a woman.

    It's not just Petraeus & Allen, see NY Times Concern Grows Over Top Military Officers’ Ethics.

    It sounds like there's a lot more scandals coming. Pres. Obama is going to have a lot distracting him & I suspect a lot of his top officials will decide to head for the exits.

    We don't know if that's accurate. There is an ongoing investigation into the events in Benghazi.

    I agree.. but why would Broadwell say that in public while she was in Denver.. Pretty crazy if you ask me.

    I don't know her actual motives nor whether the information was accurate. Those are things that depend on the outcome of the investigations.

    Well lets not forget Holly Petraeus (the wife) was using her time, intellect and abilities back at home in an unglamorous and tedious volunteer position of helping military families get out of financial trouble by using her brain to advise, lead, and help them wade though financial messes created. General Betrayus might have not just lost his glory yet also a good woman who loved him.

    I just cannot help but wonder with all the aides exclaiming of Paula's brazen flaunting of her unprecedented access if she also undermined the mission by disrupting the team effort and morale.

    Who the hell was she to be speaking on Libya security and "secret" supposed prisons in the embassy. Her fb page taken down had information and ...good gawd threatening another female not to get near Petraeus.

    I could understand how people far away from home and working diligently could fall for each other ... yet it sounds as though she approached him went after him and he took the bait and put her in positions of biographer when she was unqualified. This was not an accidental "falling in love" ...yet a strategic planned putting in place of an unqualified person.

    Jeesh I am disappointed ... other people say he was a show man and she was flaunting ... I am saddened by this.

    Our own military and tribal leaders even commented her tight scanty clothing was not culturally acceptable in that region ... from the simple to the sublime this woman was not an asset.

    Did any of our tax payer money go towards her ... travel expenses,security, lodging etc?
