Google is evil

The official story for the shafting of General Petraeus is that:

Central Intelligence Agency Director David Petraeus resigned after a probe into whether someone else was using his email led to the discovery that he was having an extramarital affair, according to several people briefed on the matter.

A Federal Bureau of Investigation inquiry into use of Mr. Petraeus’s Gmail account led agents to believe the woman or someone close to her had sought access to his email, the people said.

All emails directly to and from Google’s server are encrypted, unless they pass through a non google server. But they are kept forever in the clear on Google’s servers, and searched by the world’s greatest AI. So the only entity that could suspect that someone else was using his email is Google, which would normally react by automatically or semi automatically contacting general Petraeus by phone, not the FBI.

So, looks like Google ratted him out

And since when do government officials lose their jobs for extramarital affairs? Looks to me that someone wanted to get rid of General Petreaus, perhaps to replace him with someone even further left, and asked Google for whatever dirt they had on him, and an extramarital affair was the best they could come up with.

    Latest is that a threat made by the woman involved against another woman Petraeus knew led to an FBI investigation of her that turned up the emails.

    An affair is blackmail material which could compromise security hence the resignation.

    I mean, that’s the rationale. We all know its really about something else entirely, probably Benghazi.

    Too many stories: If the emails were released in response to a warrant, there would only be one story, the story presented to the judge as the basis for the warrant.

    Since no one is reporting what the warrant said, unlikely there was a warrant, in which case Google was responding to a request that boiled down to “Got any dirt on Petraeus?”.

    The story now is that Paula Broadwell sent threatening emails to Jill Kelley, a Petraeus family friend, warning her to stay away from him. Kelley then told a friend who worked at the FBI to investigate the emails, which led them to uncover Broadwell’s affair with Petraeus.

    Do you see any reason to doubt this story?

    It sounds like Obama is cleaning out any potential non yes men in the pentagon. Looks like your prediction of a trany running the military is going to happen sooner rather than later.
