Petraeus Gets Slap On Wrist For Leaking State Secrets, As Others Face Jail For Lesser Offenses

Recommended Posts

Former CIA director and retired general, David Petraeus, finally (and quietly) got his day in court this week. Surprise, surprise – he’ll do no time for violating the Espionage Act and just about every other state secrets law on the books.

Back in 2012, both Petraeus and fellow US General John Allen were in a double honey trap, with Petraeus taking to the worst fallout of the two because it was revealed that he had divulged, or ‘leaked’ classified information relating to US national security, during pillow-talk sessions with his then ‘biographer’ and mistress Paula Broadwell.

Many feel that Petraeus is as guilty, if not more so, than other well-publicized ‘leakers’ who have been targeted by federal investigators including CIA analyst Jeffrey Sterling, Gen. James Cartwright, Bradley-Chelsea Manning, and even Ed Snowden – all of whom the US government has been keen to see locked-up and behind bars. The Intercept reports:

“Lawyers for Jeffrey Sterling, convicted earlier this year of leaking classified information to New York Times reporter James Risen, urged today that Sterling “not receive a different form of justice” than David Petraeus, the former general and CIA director who has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor for leaking classified information to his biographer.”

But not Petraeus. He’s a made man in terms of the globalist mafia. He’s the special one, and a member of the elite Bilderberg Group, who clearly has been groomed for more important internationalist and Atlanticist endeavors, and thus cannot be punished.

The leniency shown former CIA Director (and retired General) David Petraeus by the Justice Department in sparing him prison time for the serious crimes that he has committed puts him in the same preferential, immune-from-incarceration category as those running the financial institutions of Wall Street, where, incidentally, Petraeus now makes millions. By contrast, “lesser” folks – and particularly the brave men and women who disclose government crimes – get to serve time, even decades, in jail.

Petraeus is now a partner at KKR, a firm specializing in large leveraged buyouts, and his hand-slap guilty plea to a misdemeanor for mishandling government secrets should not interfere with his continued service at the firm. KKR’s founders originally worked at Bear Stearns, the institution that failed in early 2008 at the beginning of the meltdown of the investment banking industry later that year.
