“He’s been like a wedding singer at Mar-a-Lago and he just looks really disheveled, he doesn’t look good,” she added. Image
After the 9/11 attacks, the trio made routine visits to Afghanistan and Iraq. It was on one of those trips when General David H. Petraeus gave the nickname to the triumvirate, which became vocal proponents of President George W. Bush’s “surge” strategy in Iraq.
“They were the Image
three amigos. They were three inseparable friends,” Petraeus told ABC News. “At some point, I just started saying we had the three amigos coming in again.”
Humphries reported it to his superiors and then to Republican congressional leaders Dave Reichert and Eric Cantor who then reported it to Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Robert Mueller after Humphries received complaints from Kelley that she was being Image
stalked (the stalker was eventually found to be Paula Broadwell) on the grounds that: "They seem to know the comings and goings of a couple of generals."•By the time Petraeus became Director of the Central Intelligence Agency in 2011, Broadwell had been working closely with
him for years. She used nicknames for him such as "Dangerous Dave" and "Peaches".
•In May 2012, Jill Kelley filed a complaint with the FBI after receiving disturbing emails from a user identifying as "kelleypatrol". Kelley, her husband Scott, and her sister Natalie Khawam ImageImageImageImage

6. It was two months before Mueller and Holder dispatched FBI Deputy Director Sean M. Joyce to notify the Director of National Intelligence James R. Clapper late on November 6 about the discovery of the affair.
•Agents had confronted Broadwell on November 2, 2012. The ImageImageImageImage
report did not reach headquarters until November 5. Mueller and Holder reviewed it on November 6 (election day), and decided that it was time to inform Clapper.

In or about May 2012, Jill Kelley, an Honorary Ambassador to MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, Florida, began to ImageImageImageImage
receive anonymous emails which she considered to be threatening and harassing. She contacted the FBI, who traced the emails to Broadwell.After Broadwell turned over her computer, classified documents were found, which led to further FBI scrutiny of her relationship with Petraeus. ImageImageImageImage
23][24] Although Petraeus was not identified as the provider of the documents, the affair was revealed in early November 2012 and was cited by Petraeus as the reason for his resignation on November 9.[19][25] On November 14, 2012, Broadwell was stripped of her clearances to ImageImageImageImage
access classified information,[26] and her promotion to lieutenant colonel was revoked. Following the revelations about her relationship with Petraeus, Broadwell has retained the services of former Clinton Press Secretary Dee Dee Myers[16] with the public relations firm The ImageImageImageImage
Glover Park Group. The founders of The Glover Park Group have previously served as officials in the Clinton White House and on the presidential campaign of former vice president Al Gore. After leaving Congress, Gore Sr. resumed the practice of law and also taught law at
Vanderbilt University.[citation needed] He continued to represent the Occidental Petroleum where he became vice president and member of the board of directors. Gore became chairman of Island Creek Coal Co., Lexington, Kentucky, an Occidental subsidiary, in 1972, and in his last
years operated an antiques store in Carthage—Gore Antique Mall. He was business partner to his brother Armand on several business ventures, including Hammer Galleries in New York City, founded in 1928 as a way to funnel profits made in Soviet Russia out of that country.[6]
At one point, British Intelligence believed Hammer Galleries was a front for Soviet Intelligence.[7] The Hammer brothers had been in contact with Soviet authorities for a number of reasons, such as famine relief as well as when the Soviets sought a buyer for the treasures of the
Hermitage Museum as a way to earn hard currency. Victor was responsible for acquisitions for Hammer Galleries, including the so-called Romanov Treasures and Fabergé eggs. In 1937, Time Magazine described Victor and Armand as "Two of the most startling characters in the
U.S. art world are the Brothers Armand and Victor Hammer, one with a medical degree, both friends of Soviet Russia."[Gray collected Fabergé objects, including the Fabergé eggs Napoleonic, Danish Palaces, Caucasus, and Pansy.[5][6][7][8] After her death, Image
her collection of Fabergé eggs were put on display by the New Orleans Museum of Art. The house was extensively restored during the 1940s, with 300,000 bricks from the demolished Uncle Sam Plantation used in the restoration. Uncle Sam Plantation, originally known as Constancia,
was a historic sugar plantation and elaborate Greek Revival-style mansion on the Mississippi River, near Convent in St. James Parish, Louisiana. Pierre Auguste Samuel Fagot, usually known as Samuel Fagot, acquired the plantation and other St. James Parish properties beginning in
1829. Following the Civil War, the plantation, which had been called Constancia up until that time, came to be called Uncle Sam instead. Many different stories have attempted to explain the name. One is that it came from the sugar containers from the plantation being marked for
export with "U.S." for the nation of origin. Others claim that it referred to Samuel Fagot himself. None has been confirmed by historians. On March 12, 1940, as demolition was nearing completion, the United States Army Corps of Engineers office in New Orleans received a telegram
from the director of the National Park Service asking that demolition be delayed until an investigation could be completed to determine if the site might be given National Monument or National Historic Site status. However, it was too late to save the plantation complex.[1]
Following the demolition, 300,000 bricks from Uncle Sam were used in the restoration of another extensive plantation complex nearby, Evergreen Plantation in Wallace.[3] A chemical plant, now owned by the Mosaic Company, was later built on the site. Mosaic owns a 25% stake of the
Ma'aden Wa'ad Al Shamal Phosphate Company joint venture in Saudi Arabia. In 1986 International Minerals and Chemical Corporation acquired Mallinckrodt, a leading chemical company headquartered in St. Louis.

As of 1988, Mallinckrodt was the only company in the US that is allowed
to receive cocaine, which it has used to make cocaine hydrochloride, a prescription drug used in hospitals as a local anesthetic by eye and ear, nose and throat doctors. Cocaine was first isolated from the leaves in 1860.

Sony Hack: The Interview, North Korea, and Everything We Know So far | Time

Sony’s move came a day after a cryptic message appeared online threatening attacks against theaters that played the film, and several weeks after hackers first breached Sony’s time.com/3639275/the-in…
system and posted troves of private emails and other data online. And the attack has already affected other companies: Secret acquisitions by photo-sharing app Snapchat, for instance, have been made public thanks to leaked emails from Sony Pictures CEO Michael Lynton, who sits on Image
