73. Yes--you're quite right...UNLESS.... .... .... ???

I have a strong feeling there is a third person in this mix.

I think that Petraeus and Broadwell parted ways (who did the dumping is a question, certainly) and another paramour (not Kelley) for Petraeus came upon the scene. I think Broadwell may have THOUGHT Kelley was the new paramour...but that was just a case of mistaken identity.

I do think Broadwell was angry at the termination of the relationship and wanted to lash out at a perceived rival for Raddled Davey's affections. I think she sensed or knew there WAS a rival, she just screwed up in figuring out who that rival was.

I could be totally off base on this, but I keep getting a sense that something on those lines is up.

If this is the case, I would have to go for the "Where there's smoke, there's fire" arguments. If Horny Dave has had more than one paramour (supposedly) in the scant year since he left the military, then I'd say he has a pattern happening, and it might not be a bad idea to go back and interview women who served on his general staffs (no snarky remarks now) down the years. I'm starting to wonder if this kind of behavior is a new thing with him...or is he simply a more discreet version of General "Pervert" Sinclair?

I think the suggestion that this affair started AFTER he left service strains credulity, despite the careful insistence of his former aide/chief of staff (whatever that poor idiot in the red-white-blue costume was who was quoted on the news). Of course, if he was frigging in the rigging during his acdu days, he could (not must, but could) be recalled to accept punishment for that conduct. Commonly, when they take that sort of step, it involves a reduction in rank to the last rank held honorably--so he'd be getting 3 star retirement instead of 4. He'd have maxed out the pay scale at that rank, so he still wouldn't starve.

Who knows, maybe that second (speculated) paramour is at...State? One has to wonder why State was dragged in, in those early reports in the first place...it would be interesting to see who traveled to Egypt and Libya with him--those travel orders and trip report that Feinstein wanted might tell a tale or two.
