    Gen. David Petraeus, once a widely celebrated military leader who oversaw operations in Afghanistan and Iraq and was touted as a potential presidential candidate, was sentenced to serve two years on probation and to pay an $100,000 fine on Thursday for sharing classified information with his biographer and lover, Paula Broadwell.

    Some have characterized the agreement, in which Petraeus only pleads guilty to a misdemeanor, as too lenient.

    Abbe Lowell, a lawyer who represents a government leaker currently in jail for sharing information with the media, said in a letter to the Justice Department that the deal showed a "profound double standard."

    Don't hyperventilate. It was a misdemeanor and no information was disclosed to the public.

    The sentence of probation is normal this type of offense.

    Yep, since it is a misdemeanor, it is no big deal.

    He's an idiot, arguably should have been charged with a felony, but he is not a traitor. He doesn't come close to committing treason as defined in the constitution

    Which is what it should be.

    Sorry, and I am not all that familiar, but isn't this a tempest in a thimble?

    You don't understand how the law works. This could have easily been handled as a felony but the prosecutor said no. Why?

    You must be using one of them new loose and liberal definitions of the word traitor.
    I may be wrong.
