The wholesome and good image of Colin Powel, the retired four-star U.S. general and former Secretary of State was under attack  by notorious hacker who broke into his e-mail account and posted an alleged relationship with a  Romanian woman.

Series of meetings of the Group of Socialists and Democrats in the delegation of the European Parliament in the U.S. began today in Washington, with a very interesting meeting with Colin Powelll. Commander of U.S. troops in the first Gulf War and Secretary of State from 2001 to 2005, General Colin Powell is one of the most avid observers of global developments and also an old and good friend of Romania. I, CORINA CRETU,  had, along with colleagues from Socialist MEP delegation, a very interesting discussion, focusing particularly on transatlantic cooperation in the current geopolitical framework.General Colin Powell, former U.S. Secretary of State and retired U.S. Army , right,with Romanian diplomat Corina Cretu,  denies he had an affair with her.

 

This is how Huffington Post reported it:

 

"Former Secretary of State Colin Powell denied allegations of an affair with a Romanian diplomat, The Smoking Gun reported on Thursday.

The denial comes after famed hacker Guccifer breached Powell's email and Facebook accounts, revealing 10 years of communication with Corina Cretu, a member of the European Parliament. Powell, who left the State Department in 2005, kept in touch with Cretu over email after leaving his post.

"Over time, the emails became of a very personal nature, but did not result in an affair," Powell said in a statement.

Powell, who married his wife Alma in 1962, reportedly asked Cretu to delete the email exchange, as Guccifer posted personal emails from 2010 and 2011 online this week.

Guccifer has received a lot of attention since March, when he began hacking the accounts of members of government and celebrities. His victims include Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), the Bush family and venture capitalist John Doerr."

 

 

Colin Powell issued a statement insisting he has been faithful to his wife, Alma and below is the denial statement by the retired four-star U.S. general:
