    And now we see why this is a big deal.

    Paula Broadwell is a predator.

    If she was willing to send frightening threatening emails to someone, going out of her way to disguise who is sending them she's totally capable of blackmailing Petreaus.

    Petreaus poor judgment includes not going to the FBI right away when he knew his lover was threatening someone else.

    The recipient of the harassment did the right thing. She didn't know who was sending the emails, and first complained to Petraeus about them, and was so scared that she went to the FBI for protection.

    From the Washington Post, National Security Section

    FBI probe of Petraeus triggered by e-mail threats from biographer, officials say

    The recipient of the e-mails was so frightened that she went to the FBI for protection and help tracking down the sender, according to the officials. The FBI investigation traced the threats to Paula Broadwell, a former military officer and a Petraeus biographer, and uncovered explicit e-mails between Broadwell and Petraeus, the officials said.


    One of the officials said that the recipient of the e-mails complained to Petraeus about them and that the FBI later obtained e-mails between Petraeus and Broadwell in which they discussed the harassment.
    Recipient is not the wife. Was someone Broadwell felt threatened her affair with Petraeus.

    Recipient was not the wife.
