12. Sounds as if it might have been someone within Petraeus's inner circle at CIA.

The person may have been one of Broadwell's sources in her biography of the general. Until I read this piece, I wasn't aware that Broadwell was also ex-military.

The CIA is so into internecine warfare and Petraeus wasn't an insider of that agency. It makes me wonder if someone used Broadwell (or she was part of the plot) to "get" the general in order to bring about his ouster. There were hints that insiders weren't happy about his appointment and this isn't anything out of the ordinary for that group of ghouls. The wingnuts can yammer on about this being connected to Bengazi, but I cry foul on that. This is beginning to have the whiff of an insider setup to me. Wonder who it is within that organization that stands to gain the most from his departure?
