117. I agree with Gloria Allred - let's see what Paula Broadwell has to say first

The FBI is not the private attorney of Paula Broadwell and is not Paula Broadwell.

I do not see any evidence of an affair. I realize an affair has been alleged. But that does not mean there was an affair.

And, why did David Petraeus need to mention an affair as part of his resignation? Saying he wants to "spend more time with his family"
would have been enough. Fine Good-bye.

The "reality" of an affair does not yet exist. Any real journalist would tell you the same thing. You have to get both sides of a story first.
Paula Broadwell has not yet spoken publicly. Though her father did, and said this affair was a "smokescreen." I think Paula Broadwell
probably spoke with her father in order for him to have said that.

But, again - if Paula Broadwell ever does state publicly that she had an affair with David Petraeus, I would believe it. Right now, through
her words and actions, I do not believe an affair happened or is likely to have happened.

I do think it is more likely she was trying to do what she thought was her patriotic duty and to
make a whistleblower complaint which she did not realize soon enough that no one in govt wanted her to make, but she felt it was
in the national interest to report illegal activity, even if by a four-star general. That story line seems a lot more likely to be true, IMO.
And, it is all being covered up with this "affair" media pollution propaganda. That is what it seems like to me. No one would ever
have reported "Monica Lewinsky says she had an affair with Bill Clinton so it must be true even though he has said nothing." I don't think so.
