I don’t know quite how to read this WaPo story about Paula Broadwell as a sort of femme fatale who sent threatening emails to a woman described as “close” to Petreaus.
In one way, it’s self serving – an apparent effort by Petreaus partisans to salvage at least some of his reputation. But it also explains why the FBI got involved in the first place:
According to two well-vetted sources with intimate knowledge of the CIA operations and events in Benghazi, the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus is directly related to the testimony he was expected to provide before a closed-door hearing next week before the Senate Intelligence Committee. Sources close to the controversy, citing the need for anonymity due to their positions, stated that Barack Hussein Obama was aware of the CIA director’s indiscretions “long before” the November 6, 2012 elections, and knew about the FBI’s investigative findings weeks before the election, but “erected a firewall” to prevent any disclosure before November 6th.
