Gen. Petraeus Receives Probation Sentence

He got spanked worse than Sandy Berger.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Former CIA Director David Petraeus, whose career was destroyed by an extramarital affair with his biographer, was sentenced Thursday to two years’ probation and fined $100,000 for giving her classified material while she was working on the book.

The sentencing came two months after he agreed to plead guilty to a federal misdemeanor count of unauthorized removal and retention of classified material.

The plea agreement carried a possible sentence of up to a year in prison. In court papers, prosecutors recommended two years of probation and a $40,000 fine. But Judge David Kessler increased the fine to “reflect seriousness of the offense.”

In court, before being sentenced, Petraeus apologized “for the pain my actions have caused.”

Petraeus was a good man who didn't keep in lock step with Obama...Imagine what would have happened if they'd held Eric Holder, Lois Learner and Al Sharpton to the same standard...
