  1. Court Fines David Petraeus $100K for Leak

    The judge wants him to pay for his lapse. Prosecutors sought a $40,000 fine, but the judge imposed the maximum penalty to impress upon the disgraced former CIA chief that leaking classified documents to lover/biographer Paula Broadwell was a bad idea. The retired general escapes jail time with two years’ probation, wrapping up what’s proven an embarrassing cap to an otherwise illustrious career. Petraeus, who now works in the private sector, will likely continue consulting for the White House on matters of national security.
