  •  Paula Broadwell (10+ / 0-)

    And now we see why this is a big deal.

    Paula Broadwell is a predator. If she was willing to send frightening threatening emails to someone, going out of her way to disguise who is sending them she's totally capable of blackmailing Petreaus.

    Petreaus poor judgment includes not going to the FBI right away when he knew his lover was threatening someone else.

    Scumbag.

    •  I watched one of her book tour (5+ / 0-)

      guest shots on one of the tv shows and she is one determined woman.  Even if the scandal had not been broken, it was evident that she intended to "speak" for the General in a very unsavory way.

      She is, as you say, a predator and he is an old fool.

      I do believe, however, that she was not the first and that over time it will be discovered that he was involved with more than a few other women.

      •  I'm sure you're right - a mere slip in judgment (4+ / 0-)

        when going through a tough time does not get you into this mess.

        And that is what predators do - they have to display their "kill."

          Like you, I've seen this behavior up close and personal and I'm quite certain that the gossip which surrounded these two was based on her very possessive attitude.  

          I do think that he's been able to have discreet affairs but this particular lady was not going to go quietly which I'm guessing is the direction he was headed.

            almost flaunting their closeness for everyone to see.

            Do you think he was already moving on?  Having used her for the biography?

            •  Yes, I do think he had already moved on (5+ / 0-)

              when he took the CIA gig.  Even though she visited him at Langley and continued to follow their routine which was established in Afghanistan, I believe he dumped her.  Fooling around in a country far, far away is a whole lot different that keeping an affair going in the middle of Spook Land.
