EXCLUSIVE: Petraeus mistress may have revealed classified information at Denver speech on real reason for Libya attack It is very disappointing and disconcerting to think that a man of Petraeus' stature, intelligence and standing would get involved with another woman without thinking of the consequeces which are anything from scandal to espionage. Did she know she was revealing secrets? I suppose that remains to be seen. He should be ashamend of himself. Some are speculating that her knowledge may have somehow tipped off the militants or that they already knew the men were being held but how did they know where? Good guess? Possible but so are so many other things regarding this scandal. This may be another reason (if true that there were militants being held at the annex or embassy) the admin. wasn't/isn't as forthcoming as people would like. Perhaps they have other similar operations going on in Libya and elsewhere and more than likely they didn't want the Libyan government to know since they aren't sure who they can trust.
