    that broadwell posted a pic of angelina jolie in petreaus' office on her fb page a few hrs after it was taken.  

    apparently he sent it to her & she broadcast it to make a point about how much access she had or something, & people who claim to know how the cia works said that was kind of unprecedented & usually photos taken in the director's office were kept private.

    it seems like broadwell was trying to turn her liason with petraeus into a cottage industry, or a springboard to greater things, maybe, like being the power behind the throne if he ever got in the oval office.

      To me it's clear that she was highly ambitious and her unprecedented access gave her a brand and an identity that was already catapulting her into higher levels of her career.

      I believe she had some sort of clearance in order to be embedded.  But I may be wrong.

        She markets herself as a counter-intelligence expert.

        She should know better re the Facebook page.
