28. Interesting thoughts. You may be right.

Otoh, Petraeus has stated that he was 'surprised' by Broadwell's attacks on Kelley'. Wouldn't he know what her concerns were if those were her reasons for contacting Kelley? And why do it anonymously?

She could have, eg, gone to Petraeus or any of her contacts in Intelligence if she was concerned about nefarious activities involving Kelley and others. Seems odd for her to approach it the way she did, especially if she knew of Kelley's connections to the FBI and to the General Allen.

Still, nothing is impossible. But if they were planning to blackmail anyone, that was pretty insane considering they were dealing with the FBI and the CIA and top Generals. It would not have been a very smart thing to do.
