It's Bizarre. I don't know what really happened but I had two reflections right away:
If his name had been Clinton or Kennedy, an affair would not have mattered at all.
What else is going on that this whole debacle is distracting us from? Voter fraud investigations for example?

Kelley is said to have contacted the FBI about the threatening emails.

This is where everything goes off the rails.

Not sure about "off the rails"...that is certainly that point at which the case started the long path to becoming public.

And if getting the case in the public eye wasn't the goal, why would Kelley run the risk of having the FBI investigate her email account when she knew full well she had vast communications with Gen. John Allen lurking there?

Just saying.

FOUR stars and this is the best he could do?

Sort of like I told a vendor once who thought he could offer me a bribe... “You are a damn fool. You would never be able to offer enough for me to sell my integrity and I damn sure wouldn’t sell it to you! Now, get the hell out of my office fast before I throw you out and never come back!” My reputation was sealed at the tender age of 26 and has stayed with me for these last 3 decades.

The world has gone completely mad.

Surely he is humiliated. Hopefully he is ruined.

I feel sorry for his wife. She has soldiered through the whole Army Wife mess for 38 years and has probably earned much better than this.

It’s a lot worse than that, Jill Kelley is now said to have been in some kind of relationship with the General who is in charge of Afghanistan, now. I think that is what Broadwell’s dad meant when he said that this is part of something a lot bigger. Now, I am wondering just how wide this swing set swung.

For political party that claims to be so pro-woman, the Obama administration and the Democrats have been involved in an incredible amount of sexual misconduct and prostitution. Do Democrats think that affairs and prostitution are pro-woman? There was the Secret Service, Menendez, Weiner, and probably others that I can’t think of off the top of my head.

Also, there was noting threatening in the emails. no reason to open the investigation, except that Kelley was probably worried that someone would expose her relationship with the General who replaced Petraeus in Afghanistan.

So, the only real crime was that the FBI agent used his job to open an investigation as a favor to a personal friend, with whom he may have had an inappropriate relationship.

Heck, it might have been Kelley’s husband who wrote that letter to a newspaper help column about his wife, not Broadwell’s.

Was Paula Broadwell ever awarded a Ph.D?

How do the “General Betray Us” leftist freak commercials fit into this timeline?

Broadwell was granted impressive access to Petraeus and his workings.

She was embedded.
