Colin Powell Did Not Do What David Petraeus Did… And He Didn’t Do It For Ten Long Years

corina-cretuWhen I first noticed this headline I yawned. What would a hacker expect to find by cracking former Republican Secretary of State Colin Powell’s email account? That he votes Democrat?

Probably not a big shocker.

So what the “Guccifer” (I suppose now we’ll have to call him a world famous hacker) found was, as you’d suspect, nothing out of the ordinary. Another former four-star general having an illicit affair, er, flirtation with a much younger married woman.

The Smoking Gun [excerpted] via Drudge:

AUGUST 1–As a notorious hacker seeks to distribute “very personal” e-mails sent to Colin Powell by a female Romanian diplomat, the retired general is denying that he engaged in an extramarital affair with the woman while he served as Secretary of State, though he recently advised her to delete all their online exchanges, The Smoking Gun has learned.

Now that is about as subtle as boffing Blaze Starr in a closet!

I, for one, would like to say that this is pure flimflam… but I can’t. General Powell has recently added that term to the list of words only African Americans can use to demean themselves. So… poppycock. This is the twenty-first century alternative to burning the evidence.

THE GUY ALREADY HAS THE EMAILS, GENERAL.

But TSG continues.

In a statement addressing his relationship with Corina Cretu, a member of the European Parliament who previously held a series of senior posts in the Romanian government, Powell, 76, wrote that he has known Cretu for about 10 years… “We occasionally attended the same diplomatic and international meetings.”

Mm-hum.

“Over time the emails became of a very personal nature, but did not result in an affair. Those type of emails ended a few years ago. There was no affair then and there is not one now,” Powell added.

Until someone can prove that Motel 6 actually did leave the lights on for them.

In the “very personal” correspondence cited by Powell, Cretu calls him the love of her life and describes a relationship that spanned more than a decade. The 2010-2011 e-mails would leave most readers with the clear impression that the forlorn Cretu is writing about the twilight of a lengthy romance….

In an e-mail to TSG, Powell explained, “In light of what was happening it seems obvious to ask Ms. Cretu to delete emails.” Referring to personal photos Cretu e-mailed to him, Powell wrote, “She sent photos on a regular basis. Lots of family photos with her nieces, who she adores, family reunions, formal business sessions, her wedding and some bathing suit photos… Never anything improper.”…

SCREEEEECH!

Waitaminute! Back Up. … “family reunions, her wedding and some bathing suit photos…?”

Bathing suit photos? Sorta buzzed that one across the corner low and inside, huh, General?

Generals’ scandals just aren’t what they used to be. Back in the day a woman wrote a tell all book and no one believed her. Today, they zing out an email and every agent in the Western world is looking to sign them to a $7 million two-book deal with an HBO movie option.

Expect calls, Ms. Cretu.

I’m going to sleep now.

    Kinda reminds me of Bill Clinton’s famous quote: “I DID NOT have sex with that woman” along with the squinty eyes and stern look on his face. Yeah, sure. Powell wasn’t much of a general and was even less of a secretary of state.

      She’s kind of attractive, though, don’t you think? I mean in an Eastern Bloc commie sort of way.

        Yes, I agree…..I would never associate her with Dracula.
        On the Powell matter, isn’t it interesting that with blacks, race trumps everything else and yet it is whites that get painted as racists? Powell owes his entire latter career advancement to white, republican presidents and he even pretended to be a republican in order to become a cabinet member in a republican administration yet let an inexperienced, unqualifed, unknown black run for president and he is all for that…..hook, line and sinker. I fully expect him to join the Tawana Brawley celebration in New Jersey. I suppose it is to be expected that when you tire of Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton as your only role models you naturally look for other heros such as Tawana, Rachel, Trayvon and Barack.

    This man is scum and has no ethics, so why should we believe his explanations about the affair. He said absolutely nothing when he knew who the Valerie Plame leaker was and helped destroy another man who was not responsible, and in the process, betrayed the very President who gave him an opportunity he would never have had, including the opportunity to consort with this Commie queen.

      Well, Clinton made him chair of the JCS, as well. I don’t have any problem with Gen. Powell’s qualifications or ethnic origin. I do think the moral quality of our leaders is in a downward spiral, though. As to racial issues, there seems to be a prevailing schtick most prominent African Americans think they have to meme in order to be black. They should take a good long coffee break with Dr. Ben Carson.
