Oh! Oh! Oh! Paula! Won't you tarry with me? (But leave my email alone)

Never ... not once while I was in the Army ... did I ever run into an officer like this.

7. It broke (for me) on Hardball ... Richard Engel. NOT "confirmed" (in journalist-speak).

What's not confirmed is whether SHE's the "extra-marital affair". She WAS, however, Patraeus' biographer and had EXTENSIVE "access" to him. She wrote a book .... that's VERY complimentary. She's former Army.

11. thanks.

 

if it was just an affair, meh. Although I do realize that CIA head cheeses can't get away with it as easily as say, a President like Clinton. for national security reasons.

but if it's related to real leaks and not just what could happen leaks, well well, that's a whole bigger thing.

20. There have been some leaks from this WH

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/24/dianne-feinstein-white-house-leaks_n_1699800.html

The head of the Senate Intelligence Committee said Tuesday that she shouldn't have speculated about the White House's responsibility for national security leaks because she didn't know the source of the unauthorized disclosures.

< snip >

Attorney General Eric Holder has appointed two attorneys to lead the investigation into who leaked information about U.S. involvement in cyberattacks on Iran and about an al-Qaida plot to place an explosive device aboard a U.S.-bound airliner.


Just speculation on my part but if this woman is the "mistress" and she had access to Patraeus' email/computer, it would make sense that she is being investigated for leaking certain information. Whether or not she did any of this (mistress or leaker) is yet to be confirmed.

22. She was being investigated for threatening emails she sent to another woman -nothing to do w/ the WH

The story was in the Washington Post this morning - see this thread: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10021784706

3. I think she's undercover

when you take the disguise away, she looks like Madeline Albright.

But based on those pictures she can have her way with my email.

4. that last pic speaks loudly

 

look at those smiles, we all have one of those during a lustful relationship.

kind of reminds me of John Edwards with Hunter before we knew what was really going on. They were smiling like this too.

body language.

6. We have quite a few very pretty veterans right

here on DU. But we wouldn't tarry with you. I'd more likely put you on duty all night and then send you to motor pool first thing after morning PT.

But I'd be a disaster in the Motor Pool.

It only has to run long enough to satisfy the guy in charge. Then you can go to sleep and fix it again the next day.

24. well then baby... i guess you are suggesting 51% behavior

is driven by DNA for the woman, also. cause i am really seeing no difference.

though over 75% of the married population do not seem to have the issue with that fuckin made up 51% of DNA controlling us.

18. Why *MEN* can't keep it in their pants? Being a bit sexist, as it takes TWO to tango...

She didn't keep her ass in her pants either. Neither gender is any good at resisting when the chemistry is right.

23. Proximity

the more people you meet, the more chance of chemistry

someone like Patraeus probably meets hundreds of people each year.

actually, it's probably surprising that affairs don't happen more often.

25. I'm a single female travelling for over a decade on biz

It was amazing how many times I'd get hit on...usually by conservative married types..

I work in a very male dominated field...my answer was always the same..No

28. One thing that all know now

is that General Patraeus is a fool and an idiot.

Maybe he was so wrapped up in a love triangle gone haywire, that he really did fuck things up in his job as Director of the CIA.
