Could General Petraeus Become Inmate Petraeus?

The United States military takes adultery very seriously.  In fact it treats adultery as a criminal offence warranting imprisonment.

When CIA director David Petraeus resigned, he pointedly stated that his affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell, began after he left the U.S. Army.

Under no circumstances did the affair occur while Petraeus was still an active duty general.   Certainly not during the time Petraeus and Broadwell spent together in Afghanistan.  And not during the time she spent with him working on his biography.  



This isn't over yet, not by a long shot.

With the revelation of a second woman, Jill Kelley, it makes one wonder with how many women did Petraeus do the bouncy bounce? Were they on company time?

What's the title of her biography of him?

The title is "All In" I'm guessing "Balls Deep" was taken.

Petraeus story is interesting. But more troubling is Bush and Cheney who are war criminals and running free.

Give a man enough rope, and he'll hang himself. Seems like an apt quote:
