#1 Petraeus is not the kind of guy to say anything about his work on a personal email - he knows better than that. Likewise, there's no way I'd believe that the man would ever allow himself to be blackmailed. It's not happening. There is zero evidence that he did anything wrong - in terms of disclosing national secrets. Did he make some bad judgments about personal relationships - sure. But he could have been allowed to retire and keep his dignity.
This incident has the stench of political reprisals to it.

#2 "Petraeus's personal Gmail"
You can tell a lot about a person just by email habits.
I cannot believe the director of the CIA has a personal Gmail account. I hope he at least enabled the 2 stage authentication.
