So if I am reading this correctly:

Crazy got jealous of a 7 year olds on-line photo op with the general and assumed the man she was cheating with was cheating with the kids Mom so she sent harrassing e-mails to get Mom to back off. As this particular lady didn't seem to be involved with the General she naturally contacted LEO which happened to be her "friend" in the FBI who after getting the ball rolling promptly stomped on said ball and sent his own harrassing e-mail to this lady.

General resigns in disgrace because he stuck it to the crazy. Got it.

But it seems that this particular lady, while not banging Petraeus, may well be having some sort of affair with the current commander in Afghanistan.

Seriously, this is like the most batshiat insane soap opera plot. They're lucky it didn't end up with major national security consequences, assuming that it didn't, that is.

I am thinking that may actually be a fairly large assumption. Why would this kelley be in contact with and presumably friendly with both the current and previous afghan commander.

I don't know if I am as willing to believe that she wasn't intimate with patreus based on new information.

The thing is, if she's a honey trap, she's the world's stupidest one.

I'm not really all that surprised that she'd know both the current and past Afghan commander because if she's somebody with money and influence in Tampa who's involved in military circles, I don't think it's that strange that she'd know multiple power players out of CENTCOM. That they all seem so ready and willing to get intimate with her is really disconcerting as far as national security goes though.

I'm starting to believe the theory that the reason the GOP was hammering Benghazi so much was because one of these chicks was leaking stuff that they shouldn't have known.

Heard on the radio that Paula Broadwell was giving a lecture on some college campus and was actually saying things she probably shouldn't have known about that apparantly didn't really click with the audiance until this scandal broke. So there is that on one side and Jill kelley possibly boffing both Him and the current Afghan Commander with his proclivity for spillage of info (not necessarily national security level but still) already in question and now another other woman.

OK so I have no proof and am just following behind the story but this could get ugly before it gets all Porno'd.

But that's pretty much the extent of that story as of right now, just that one sentence.


It looks like we're up to a love hexagon by now. Petreus, Allen, the FBI investigator, Jill Kelley, Broadwood and Petreus' wife all mixed up in this mess.

I still don't get how Petreus figured the standard rules for CIA employees who handle sensitive information didn't apply to him. Infidelity is a great way to end up being blackmailed, and he especially should have known better. Either he ignored the rules or the FBI vetting process prior to him being named CIA Director really sucked.

And Broadwell nd Kelley are both married as well so they entered the Octogon. Which puts them in Chuck Norris territory.

Bendal:

Adultery is a crime in the US military with clear conditions:

(1) That the accused wrongfully had sexual intercourse with a certain person;

(2) That, at the time, the accused or the other person was married to someone else; and

(3) That, under the circumstances, the conduct of the accused was to the prejudice of good order and discipline in the armed forces or was of a nature to bring discredit upon the armed forces.


Odds that he will be disciplined, zero.

Rules/laws are for the common people.

KeelingLovesCornholes: News now reporting the top U.S. general in Afghanistan, John Allen, is being investigated for inappropriate emails to Kelley. So it's pretty clear "unpaid social liaison" translates to "slut for anyone over 2-stars".


Don't laugh. Around big HQ bases that's a distinct social class.
