41. I think there is indeed a lesson to be learned here, for women

And that lesson is this: Don't hang around someone for any reason if there is no criminal penalty associated with them
falsely accusing you of having an affair.

Once Petraeus had his job title changed, in Sept 2011, to head of the CIA, Paula Broadwell should have stopped
seeing him for any reason, and only conducted interviewed needed with him via email.

Because it WAS a crime for him to carry on an affair while working in the military under military law; but
it was NOT a crime for him to do so while head of the CIA.

This means: no protection for her, once he becomes head of the CIA. She should have made a decision, and a big point publicly,
that she never once saw him after he became head of the CIA.

So any alleged "affair" he later wants to allege would have thus meant: he had an affair when it was a crime for him to do so,
and he is publicly admitting to a crime.

But Paula Broadwell trusted him. I feel very sorry for her. SHe found out her trust was misplaced.

I imagine the general, Petraeus, and his wife, Holly, are laughing about the whole matter. Neither of them are "furious."
It is just another CIA plot.

However, seeing such plots in the USA, if that indeed is what it was, is pretty scary, IMO. Paula Broadwell is completely innocent IMO, except
for her failure to recognize she was in danger once he became head of the CIA as there was no criminal law for him to comply with in terms
of his conduct.

It's scary. Paula Broadwell could have been anyone's daughter. Now she is an outcast, thanks to this smearing which is life-long and permanent,
due to the internet. It's very sad to me.
