With liberty and justice for some.

Well well well. What have we here?

Lawyers for David H. Petraeus have reached an agreement with federal prosecutors for the retired general and former CIA director to plead guilty to a misdemeanor charge for mishandling classified materials, a deal that brings an end to a lengthy investigation that kept him largely out of public view for more than two years.

The deal, if approved by a judge, will spare Petraeus a prison sentence and allow him to avoid a trial that probably would have revealed details of his relationship with his former mistress and biographer, who had been provided the highly sensitive documents.

He also lied to the FBI investigators.

Meanwhile, former CIA analyst and case officer John Kiriakou got 30 months in prison for blowing the whistle on CIA torture by providing classified information to a journalist.

Ahem.
