23. Kelley is said to be a Middle East "back channel" of some kind.

These emails with Gen. Allen were probably about that. And I say (based on my gut) that she, as this back channel, had something to do with the RW attempted set up about the Benghasi attack. When Petraus did not support that pov in his Congressional testimony, she may have decided to (or someone told her to) "get him" via exposing the Broadwell "threats".

I also have a hunch that Broadwell's warning Kelly off of Petraeus, had something to do with her knowing that Kelley was about to botch the whole plot connecting all of them (not "stay off my man"). Protective but not sexual.

So I'm thinking that Petraeus either screwed up the plot, or got cold feet part way into it, or wouldn't go along with it and fell on his sword.

Just a hunch for two cents. In any case I think Kelley and these emails are the central part of this.
