    Giving classified information to your girlfriend because she is giving you tail is repulsive but shouldn't be called "treason'.

    IIRC there is no indication that information was leaked to hostiles by the general.

    Read the rules on posting an OP in MSM and such. Title must match the headline. Trying to save you some grief.

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.
    The shooter was later found to be white.

    True! Ja, he did spill the beans with his mistress of all people. What an idiot, threw away a fantastic career over this foolishness.

    Well it's a good thing she wasn't a foreign spy.

    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    Pity really, because he was not a bad soldier. But they might have hit him harder, really. On the other hand, was what he did worse than $100K, probation and the embarrassment?

    Nice title that doesn't match the article.

    For what he did, traitor can be applied to so many in government. Are you planning on applying that title to all of them? Effing disgusting.

    Wasn't Snowden's life destroyed when he released classified information? Yes General Betray-us isn't being held to the same standard at all.

    I would like this general to have his life ruined and him having to flee the country as well or I would like to see Snowden charged and convincted in absentia with similar punishments.

    I would also like to see John McCain charged and convicted because he went to Syria and met with members of Al-Qaeda and ISIS and gave them classified information.

    "Traitor General Petraeus gets off with misdemeanor and probation. No jail or felony"

    The crime with which he was charged is a misdemeanor. How would you suggest that he "got off" with anything? Been reading too many blogs?
