Petraeus: Probation for Pillow Talk Leaks

Petraeus: Probation for Pillow Talk Leaks

Former CIA Director David Petraeus was sentenced to two years’ probation and fined $100,000 for leaking military secrets to his mistress/biographer Paula Broadwell. General Petraeus could have been sentenced to a year in prison; the fine is less than the fee he gets for a single speech.

That’ll teach him.
