Was Petraeus affair outed ages ago in a New York Times advice column?11/10/2012
While CIA director David Petraeus' resignation due to an extramarital affair may have come unexpectedly, it's possible that we were all given a sign in a rather unlikely place: a newspaper advice column. CNBC's Hank Greenberg pointed out a question in Chuck Klosterman's "The Ethicist" column that was published back in July that may have been from the husband of Petraeus' mistress, Paula Broadwell. In the letter, the reader tells Klosterman that his wife is having an affair with a public official, but he fears that outing the affair will negatively affect the projects that the official is working on, which the reader claims to strongly believe in. The timeline does seem to match up, and Broadwell is married, and Petraeus' work could be viewed as a "demonstration of American leadership," but there's just one part of this story that doesn't match up: Who still actually writes letters to newspaper advice columnists?
