  • Prosecutors Recommend Charges Against Gen. Petraeus

    The F.B.I. and Justice Department prosecutors have recommended bringing felony charges against retired Gen. David H. Petraeus for providing classified information to his former mistress while he was director of the C.I.A., officials said, leaving Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. to decide whether to seek an indictment that could send the pre-eminent military officer of his generation to prison.

    Anyone see the irony in it being Holder to decide?

        If he did the crime he must do the time.

        I would have done it all except provide access to my email!

          If Petraius did it, he was wrong and needs to suffer the consequences.

          However, the woman concerned is a West Point graduate, a reserve officer, and has a security clearance. That being the case, then the issue is access. If she didn't have access to the material, then Petraeus is wrong. A security clearance is the primary issue; access to that material, which has to be formally granted, is another.

          Sincerely,

          We are not now that strength which in old days
          Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
          Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
          To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

            I don't like it.

            Scare him a little, then let him go.

              I don't see anyone being prosecuted over Fast and Furious... Seems both you and this administration are very selective about who they think should face the consequences of their actions....

                There are several degrees of security clearances. I am sure he had the highest. She may not have had the highest.

                I have no sympathy for the man. Leaky lips sinks ships or some such thing. And he done sunk himself.

                  She did not have a need to know. As much as I like Petraeus love got the better of him and he ****ed up.

                  And for Holder, selling weapons to drug dealers, he needs to go to jail also.

                    Yes, they hated him so much they appointed him to the overall command in Afghanistan and they they still hated him so much they appointed him head of the CIA......

                    Of cabbages—and kings—

                      They had to... no one else wanted to work with the Obama administration.

                        I doubt they will.

                        They let Bush and Cheney of for their war crimes...why start now?

                          I think the claim is he gave her access to his CIA email.

                            Good point. Both Fast and Furious and the torture dungeons were pretty serious crimes. I think they should be charged and prosecuted, but it's not happening.

                            I don't think Petraeus' offerings to his floozy match up anywhere close to that.

                            Give him a pass, it really doesn't matter. I mean, she didn't sell secrets to the Soviet Union or North Korea, after all. As Massena points out, she IS military ---- our military. So who cares. I don't like Petraeus, the cheater: but this is just small potatoes.

                            I suppose it's Republicans trying to make up Dem scandals before the election so they can use it to trash the Dems later and hope people will remember. There is a WHOLE lot of this going on, and there will be more, both sides.

                              Both he and the woman should face the consequences of what they did. Then again Bradley Manning should have been shot for espionage and treason, Bergdahl should be locked up with the key thrown away for desertion and Holder should be at the front of the line for almost every crime in the book. Though that would require justice and laws actually being enforced with appropriate sentences so I'm not holding my breath.

                              Keep repeating it and eventually it'll be true.
