Paula Broadwell aka Paul Dean Kranz was educated here and has worked for AIPAC, the Kennedy School, and the US Gov in Bosnia from 99-01… The main point is that the FBI was ordered to discredit Patraeus and had no reason to suspect that Paula Broadwell was a risk. They basically dug up dirt on him to protect Benghazi.
Agent Broadwell Broke Off The Espionage With Patraeus In September of 2011, 4-5 months after the FBI began “investigating.” So how does the FBI investigate the head of the CIA without the CIA knowing? Answer: They don’t.

The FBI is Obama’s personal secret police, and no longer has any credibility. Now their authority only comes from their ability to murder or detain you, not from the rule of law, or a mandate of the people.
