27. I agree

it's about what Petreaus was doing concerning the CIA, national security, Benghazi and why on earth would Broadwell have publicly announced in a speech that the reason for the attack was because the CIA was holding prisoners there which is illegally and which she sourced to Petreaus. Why is nobody even here delving into THAT instead of gossiping about Jill Kelley and her sister schmoozing the generals that THE GENERALS allowed and encouraged?

I agree. This is about something else. At least that is what it seems to me, too.

But, politically, what does it benefit the Democrat leaders to treat Paula Broadwell with
respect and fairness? She might really have someday become a U.S. presidential candidate. And she would certainly have qualifications that tower over the last GOP woman who ran for national office, Ms. Palin. So, Democrat leaders might not mind that Broadwell's life is over.

And, politically, what does it benefit the Republican leaders to look beyond any alleged "affair" -- when Petraeus was one of their own? Do they want to find out if Petraeus committed some act that would actually be insubordinate, or treason, or something like that? What if Petraeus held prisoners illegally, and was waterboarding? That might be A-OK with Republican leaders. Whatever.

Because it benefits neither the right nor left political leaders to seek the truth, the public is submerged in this pollution in the media of allegations of an affair, with no evidence to back it up. An "affair." That's all the explanation the sheeple need or will receive.

There are so many holes and questions in what is becoming the "official" version.

How did Jill Kelley ever meet any general in the first place? She claimed she has known Petraeus since "2007" - "for at least five years" from "MacDill." But all the talk in the media of the "Friends of MacDill Program" claims that program, giving Jill Kelley unescorted access to the base, began in "2010." So no one has explained how exactly Jill Kelley knew any generals for "at least five years."

And I am not aware of Paula Broadwell having access to the Petraeus email account. Did she? Really? And that is how she knew Jill Kelley's name and Jill's email address?

This is like a poorly written farce what is being dumped on the public. I am sorry, but that is what it seems to me.
