Broadwell was Petraeous Gatekeeper and Fox parrot?

The more I read the more it seems she was part of the republican network of spreading lies. This would not be new. Remember Judith Miller?

Petraeous was either a willing stooge,incredibly stupid, or both.

1. mainly she seems off her rocker

Why in the world would she send the threatening emails to the friend? She sounds obsessive, like a spurned lover.

And then there is this-- (from your link)

Efforts Sunday to reach Broadwell—who colleagues and friends of Petraeus say would often present herself as his gatekeeper—for comment were unsuccessful. On Friday, her personal website and Facebook page were scrubbed from the Internet. (The Washington Post reported Sunday that “Officers close to Petraeus grew concerned about her posts on Facebook, which they believed sometimes divulged sensitive operational details.”)


She divulged operational details on Facebook?

Are you KIDDING ME?

Glad they are onto this fool. Petraeus must have dumped her for her to be sending those threatening emails. Finally figured out her craziness I presume. I have no idea, of course, but she seems really unhinged.

24. this whole thing is strange, but

I won't be calling her crazier and loopier and Glenn Close quite yet. It's too easy to give the woman the brunt of the blame in matters like this.

The crazier fucker is Patreaus, if you ask me. Double entendre intended!
and he is more likely to get off because we all know women are such succubus witchy things that make men do awful things they can't help.

barf!

11. I've read that Broadwell broke off relationship with Petraeus.

Threatening emails could be a smokescreen put out by Patraeus team.

12. I thought it was "mutual"

Whatever, I doubt that.

If Petraeus sent his own friend threatening emails, well, that would be quite surprising. Can't say I buy that speculation........at all.

7. I was wondering the same thing when reading the NYT this morning.

It mentioned "threatening" e-mails, but the article didn't elaborate on what the threats involved, or why they were made.

9. Is it possible that CIA was holding Libyan prisoners without State Dept. authorization

in the compound and triggered the attack? Was Petraeus running a rogue organization within the CIA that is connected to Neocons? Could Chris Stevens have stumbled upon this? Could Paula Broadwell have leaked false story about request for CIA backup being denied to divert attention away from true cause of attack (CIA holding prisoners)? Could Petraeus and Broadwell be duping Rethugs into spinning a false story? Could Petraeus have shared classified information and army details with Broadwell for a longer period of time than what the press is reporting--he send over 1,000 emails to her asking her to rekindle the relationship that she broke off. Was Eric Cantor smoked out of his hole by FBI--and did not really willingly coming forward with information? After all he contacted FBI director who already knew about investigation. Did FBI "whistle blower" truly intend for Cantor and Rethugs to stop Petraeus and Broadwell--but got tripped up by shady Cantor? Or perhaps did FBI whistle blower give Cantor and REthugs some bad juju to trip them up? Is Jill Kelly a smokescreen (FBI agent)--and not really a key player in this? She performs work with CIA as an unpaid volunteer and is friends with Holly Petraeus--is thisfriendship one to keep a neye on Petraeus? Was Dan Senor an acquaitance of Broadwell and Petraeus given confidential information by Petraeus or Broadwell to attempt to discredit Obama? Did Senor who has very bad judgment give information to Karl Rove (FOX)? Did Paula Broadwell really have information regarding a rogue neocon organization on her computer that was hacked by FBI? Did the neocon rogue organization go so far as to promise Paula Broadwell that she could be National Security Advisor if she delivered the goods on Obama? Was Paula Broadwell a paid Army employee earning a seix figure income from writing a book about Petraeus--in conflict with Army policy? Did Obama know that Petraeus was a serial adulterer based on other women that he had secured jobs for at the Pentagon? Was FBI monitoring Broadwell from day one? Did Obama Admin. shut down the rogue neocon organization that includes Senor and Cantor and force their inside man Petraeus out into the cold? Was Feinstein given a secretive classified briefing about these events and swore to secrecy--and is now doing a superb act for the cameras feigning ignorance? Is Paual Broadwell worth more to neocons as a dead woman? Just some thoughts running through my poor beleaguered mind.

23. Thank You For Your Post And All Your Questions.....

It's clear to me that something has/is going on around this whole issue. I am now addicted to reading everything about it. Too many questions. Too many Repugs seem to be associated with it.

What about the Drudge story before the election about some scandal that was about to break. What happened to that? What about Woodward being contacted about someone that had info? What about Rove's meltdown on Fox on election night? What about the fact that the Rmoney campaign and Rmoney himself were totally shocked he didn't win this election? I mean really - he had no concession speech prepared?

Something is rotten in Denmark. And the cast of characters involved are interwoven and connected. It sounds to me that perhaps they got played by the other side on this and really can't admit that they got played because it would implicate themselves.

We might never know what this is all about - but it sure makes good reading. Boy - I love a good conspiracy. I won't say 'theory' though.

13. Hmmmmm

Broadwell: "Now I don’t know if a lot of you heard this,” she replied, “but the CIA annex had actually—had taken a couple of Libyan militia members prisoner and they think that the attack on the consulate was an effort to try to get these prisoners back. So that’s still being vetted.”

CIA: “The CIA has not had detention authority since January 2009, when Executive Order 13491 was issued. Any suggestion that the Agency is still in the detention business is uninformed and baseless.”

14. LOOK WHO BROADWELL IS CONNECTED TO

Well, well, well, Paula Broadwell is well-connected with... David Gergen
And David Gergen is, as Andrew Sullivan pointed out, well connected with Bain capital.

19. I remember seeing her on the Daily Show...

when her Petraeus book was coming out. She gave me the creeps then. I think she was wearing a very weird top--with a high frilly neck and exposed arms. I remember thinking at the time she was an odd person who seemed to not understand what the Daily Show was.

He does admit he knew before anyone else. This whole thing smells of republican smear campaign.

Once again the republican party was willing to put security at risk for political gain. Will there be another Judy Miller willing to go to jail for a few months in return for a cushy job?

31. Her connection to Romney via Bain Capital

and the ReThug network points to a backfired attempt. Even if she had bits of information on Benghazi, it obviously wasn't enough to give the ReThugs the biggest story to "topple" Obama pre-election.

It took out yet another ReThug. He was considered a 2012 ReThug potential candidate: http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/northamerica/usa/7482356/General-David-Petraeus-tipped-as-Republican-2012-presidential-candidate.html
