    I could care less about who's having sex with whom when & where. I DO care when one person gets broad access to classified material, and boasts about it and leaks it, and because she's pretty the comment threads (less so here, more so on other sites) run "Well, his wife is old and ugly and Paula is hot so what's the big deal." And the other person did an act of conscience and is sitting in solitary confinement and will likely be in the brig for a very very long time.

    BTW the reports are that the actual affair began after Petraeus was at CIA, no longer a military officer -- so not in Afghanistan, though it may have been brewing there. Who knows what's true -- only the two of them, and presumably neither is talking, on advice of counsel.
