17. Broadwell's career is inconsistent with the stories about her

She is/was much more than a journalist or academic researcher. I haven't seen any of the news coverage mention her military career.
Broadwell graduated from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1995. She majored in political geography. She earned a master's degree in international security from the University of Denver's Josef Korbel School of International Studies in 2006. She earned a Master of Public Administration from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University in 2008. She is a "Research Associate" in the Kennedy School's Center for Public Leadership Fellows. In 2008, she entered the Ph.D. program at Department of War Studies at King's College London.

She served in the United States Army and the United States Army Reserve. She was promoted to lieutenant colonel in the Reserves in August 2012.

She was Deputy Director of the Jebsen Center for Counter-Terrorism Studies at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. She also worked with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force.

Her career path does not fit with someone who would be casual with national security items or who would accidentally endanger the career of a top official in the CIA.

There must be much more going on that we are hearing - or probably ever will. A woman who graduated from West Point, became a Lieutenant Colonel and held the posts she had does not do the things she has been accused of without something major going on in her mind or without being set up by someone.
