F.B.I. and Justice Dept. Said to Seek Charges for Petraeus

    Wow. I guess he's off everyone's short list for VP in '16.

    The F.B.I. and Justice Department prosecutors have recommended bringing felony charges against David H. Petraeus, contending that he provided classified information to a lover while he was director of the C.I.A., officials said, leaving Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. to decide whether to seek an indictment that could send the pre-eminent military officer of his generation to prison.

    The Justice Department investigation stems from an affair Mr. Petraeus had with Paula Broadwell, an Army Reserve officer who was writing his biography, and focuses on whether he gave her access to his C.I.A. email account and other highly classified information.

    F.B.I. agents discovered classified documents on her computer after Mr. Petraeus resigned from the C.I.A. in 2012 when the affair became public.

    I highly doubt he was THAT stupid. I may be wrong, but this isn't a guy who got where he got by being that dumb. Put his dick in the wrong pot, yes. This dumb? Surely not.

    Concerned as always. But at least we know whose fault it is.
