Daily Caller Suggest Gen. Patraeus Now Involved In Love Triangle

Posted: Monday, November 12, 2012 | Posted by Chico Brisbane |

I'm sure I wasn't the only person surprised by a Daily Caller article titled: Espionage à Trois - Military liason Jill Kelley revealed as thrid woman in Patreaus love triangle.

Now, what other conclusion can the reader draw from the title of the Daily Caller piece other than Gen. Patreaus being involved in a three-way sexual encounter with his wife, his mistress Paula Broadwell, and apprently now Jill Kelley. The blogger whom wrote the post describes the Patreaus situation as a "scandal that continues to read more and more like a Lifetime made-for-TV movie" and that the woman who sounded the alarm that led to the resignation of former CIA Director David Petraeus has been identified as a volunteer State Department military liaison.

I kept reading in anticipation of the story title living up to it's claim, but found nothing to support it's bold implication. No big surprise. Instead, here is the jist of what the Daily Caller piece had to say about Ms. Kelley.

Jill Kelley, reportedly a close friend of Petraeus, alerted the FBI when she received harassing emails from Petraeus’ mistress, his biographer Paula Broadwell, the Associated Press revealed Sunday.

“We and our family have been friends with Gen. Petraeus and his family for over five years. We respect his and his family’s privacy and want the same for us and our three children,” Kelley said in a statement reported by ABC News.

A close friend of Petraeus told ABC that Kelley, 37, and her husband befriended the retired four-star general when he was stationed in Florida. The source speculated that there was never a romantic relationship between Kelley and Petraeus.

AP sources added that Kelley and her husband were longtime friends with both Petraeus and his wife, Holly, frequently attending events at Central Command headquarters when Petraeus was combatant commander there.

But Broadwell appeared to believe Petraeus’ relationship with Kelley was more intimate. She reportedly sent threatening emails to Kelley warning her to “stay away from” the now former CIA director and telling her, “I know what you did.”

In a letter to CIA employees announcing his resignation, Petraeus expressed regret for the affair, which reportedly began in August 2011 and ended four months ago.

“After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours,” he wrote.

President Barack Obama accepted his resignation Friday.

As I said. I'm sure I'm not the only one surprised by the title of the Daily Caller piece, but is anyone surprised by the lack of editorial integrity? - - - anyone? - - - anyone at all.....
