"'Jill Kelley' is really Jill Khawam"

Any truth to this?

http://israelmatzav.blogspot.com/2012/11/jill-kelley-is-really-jill-khawam.html

'Jill Kelley,' the woman who precipitated the David Petraeus scandal by reporting that she was being harassed by Petraeus paramour Paula Broadwell, is actually a 37-year old Lebanese woman named Jill Khawam (Hat Tip: Sunlight via Daniel Greenfield).

...

Natalie Khawam is a lawyer specializing in representing whistleblowers. According to her online resume, she attended Beaver College (now Arcadia), and earned graduate degrees from Temple University and Georgetown University Law School.

29. It was an all women's college named Beaver College - they sold a ton of Tshirts to non-students

They didn't like all the jokes, so they changed their name when they became co-ed. They picked the new name Arcadia so they would be towards the front of the guide books in alphabetical order.

20. I live a couple miles from Arcadia (originally the Beaver College being described here)

It is in Montgomery County just outside of Philly. Had some friends who attended it. They went full throttle over the past 20 years and became a university. The campus is on an old estate of one of the barons from back in the day.

10. Anderson Cooper was just mentioning...

that she might have Middle East origins/connections which could explain why the investigation was expedited, but didn't have any further information.

This case is so wierd, I wonder if anyone was having sex with Julian Assange? A whistleblower attorney is apparently part of the family.

16. Ahhh, gotcha. Yeah, this case is bizarre to say the least.

I think that Paula Broadwell's ID turning up in Rock Creek Park the other day is more than a coincidence, I'm just not sure why she dumped it. It seems TOO much of a coincidence for her to lose it only hours before this story broke nationally.

6. it's her maiden name

we already knew that, was in the first stories about her and her family. I think "Hezbolah" is a bit of a stretch.

19. They were born in the U.S. to Lebanese immigrants. That would make them Americans not Lebanese.

24. Interesting...


A military officer who is a former member of Petraeus’s staff said Kelley was a “self-appointed” go-between for Central Command officers with Lebanese and other Middle Eastern government officials.

Her presence was often a bit puzzling to Petraeus’s staff, the officer said, but added that there was never any indication that her relationship with the general was anything more than social.

28. She calls herself an "honorary consul" for Lebanon.

If she is the same person as the MySpace Jill Kelley, she's also lying about her age!
