Petraeus's mistress became jealous of woman military liaison officer from the State Department
Daily Mail ^

Posted on 11/11/2012 12:37:25 PM PST by Arthurio

The woman at the center of the Gen Petraeus cheating scandal fired off a threatening email to a military liaison in the State Department whom she felt was getting too close to him, it has been revealed.

An official says 37-year-old Jill Kelley in Tampa, Florida, received the emails from Petraeus biographer Paula Broadwell that triggered an FBI investigation.

Details of the affair between Petraeus and his biographer Paula Broadwell reportedly came to light during a FBI probe of the emails that she allegedly sent to Ms Kelley.

The new revelation raises the possibility that Broadwell was growing increasingly jealous of a government employee whose job it was to keep in contact with Petraeus.

Ms Kelley, fearing for her safety, contacted the FBI.

Broadwell sounds like a nut job. Disappointed doesn't even begin to decribe my feelings about Petraeus. That being said, I think there's a whole lot more to the this story that is not being disclosed.

Excellent timing right after a stolen election and all the New Dump Friday orders.

I think the FBI thought Broadwell-Kranz might be an Israeli spy, something that would have provided a foreign power with a LOT at stake with a looming Iran a LOT of influence over Petraeus’ actions.

I think the FBI can’t say that so instead they cook up this, “jealous woman” BS in order to explain away why they originallytook an interest in the Broadwell/Petraeus emails.

here are alliances and political pressures, and they just can’t say the real reason.

“happened to run across” = “spontaneous demonstration led to a tragedy”

After awhile it gets sort of INSULTING, don’t you think...

Same playbook as the Bubba monica mess: b4 the blue dress they were trying to get gay Georgie StepOnAllOfUs to say Monica had been stalking him in the Georgetown Starbucks.

Wanna smear a young woman? Say she’s an oversexed stalker —it works and they’re doing it to this one.

It SOUNDS so utterly plausible, but with THIS admin, it’s always somehow WAAAAY deeper, darker, and more treacherous...

I'm trying to find a picture, but no joy yet.

A quick search shows a porn star named Jill Kelley, but probably not the liaison officer mentioned in the article.

Hillary’s state department? Interesting.

I wonder why Petraeus told Congress that preposterous tale about a YouTube video causing some terrorists to try to kill or kidnap the US ambassador to Libya. The White House and State Department had already been promoting the video story before he spoke to Congress. So I guess this is why Hillary took responsibility.

Love this quote:

“..,She had planned to celebrate her 40th birthday in Washington this weekend, with many reporters invited. Her husband Scott emailed guests to cancel the party...”

Her birthday was November 9. She was supposed to have a party in DC and the guest list supposedly included many reporters.

Why her husband took care if the cancellations is beyond me. I would have said “Cancel your own damned party, *itch”. Of course she could have cancelled using his email account.

What the general did is completely wrong. However, I don’t think it should get all the media attention it is receiving. All this does is publically humiliate the general’s wife and the biographer’s husband.

The ONLY issue I think worth discussing, is if Petraeus is now silenced from giving testimony on what went wrong in Libya. THAT is what is important. His stupid actions shouldn’t give the Obama administration an excuse to keep him silent.

No crime had occurred and there was no security breach? He was married for 37 years to the same woman. My guess is his wife would have forgiven him. Obama could have stopped any military proceedings. So how could Petraeus be convinced to quit and go public? Obama was holding the possibility of military proceedings over Petraeus’ head. Or there’s more.

Well, I guess there’s a lesson in here for all of us.

Never send a female government employee an e-mail with the following phrase:

“Stay away from my man.”

That is like waving a red flag in front of an angry bull to the FBI. They will come and investigate you. Baloney, lies and more baloney.

You play, you pay. And so does your whole family, unto several generations.

I don't agree with "all it does." Obviously, this politically manipulated scandal provides a major distraction, diversion and smoke screen for the Benghazi debacle. In that four of our finest died, I can live with the enabling spouses' feeeeeelings being hurt.

If/when they are old enough, the Petraeus and Broadwell children can leave home and/or change their last names. The parents of the dead Seals will never see their children at the holiday table again.

Don't you think she would of contacted Gen. P. before she called the FBI, since it was her job to keep in contact with him?

I agree with your theory that the story the FBI is giving the media about female friend of Petraeus’ was concerned about another woman is just a cooked up story to justify the FBI reading Petraeus’ emails! The FBI knew Petraeus was having an affair when he was given the job of the CIA Head because he needed to go through lie detection test and extensive background checks. FBI have been monitoring his emails etc. while Petraeus has been in this new CIA position. This information they gathered from the emails were to be used on him when it came time. I still have not come to a conclusion about Broadwell. Don’t know whether she is an Israeli spy, a plant from the Obama administration or just an affair. I do feel that Petraeus will not lie under oath though.

'Another person who knows Kelley and Petraeus confirmed their friendship and said she saw him often.'

I suspect more info will come out that Petraeus was multitasking with many women.

I have a connection...

Here's the photo...

And here's the connection to Petraeus...

There wasn't as much shock this year, but there was definitely some awe. So said the area's best-known military leader.

"Awesome," Gen. David Petraeus said of his first Gasparilla parade.

Petraeus, who runs the U.S. Central Command from MacDill Air Force Base, and his wife, Holly, watched from the comfort of a big tent on Bayshore Boulevard. They were guests of surgeon Scott Kelley and his wife, Jill.

"You have to see it to believe it, even in the rain," said Petraeus, who spent the afternoon chatting candidly with two dozen guests, including state attorney general candidate Pam Bondi and Bern's Steak House owner David Laxer.

Security at Kelley's house was no joke, one paradegoer discovered, running after one zap of electricity from a guard's Taser. "

In the recent past, Generals have been recalled from retirement and put back on Active Duty in order to be investigated and punished for actions they took before they retired. Petraeus knows this. Petraeus knows it can be done to him. Obama could keep that from happening, though.

Saw Judge Jeanine last night. Watch first two segments of this video. Very interesting! You just can’t like this lady! She is so good! In the second segment of the video, she has 2 guest who explain the whole embassy scenario and the lack of military effort to help the 4 patriots. Good video and is worth watching. The 3’rd segment is from a week or so ago. I’ve seen them before.

"2 guest who explain the whole embassy scenario and the lack of military effort to help the 4 patriots."

Are you talking about Col Dave Hunt & Greg Bernsen, ex CIA?

I have been looking for that video, but I don't see it at your link.

I mentioned her program and part of her discussion with Hunt and Bernsen, as well as her interview with KT McFarland, in this Post.

Yes Hunt and Baker or in the second part of the video. If you stay on the video it will continue to the second video. If not look at the bottom of the video and click onto the different ones below. The video that Hunt and Baker are in, Jeanine is wearing a white Dress.

I am not so sure about that. I bet his wife trusted that he would never cheat on her...and I bet he lied to her and others to keep his cheating quiet.

Not that they will, but they can and have done so with others- the military can yank him back under their jurisdiction and bring action against him for any violations he is believed to have committed before he retired...including adultery.

Technically he does still have the possibility of facing military proceedings.

As a retired servicemember entitled to pay, Petraeus remains subject to the UCMJ (Article II (a)(4)).

As a retired officer, Petraeus may be recalled to active duty up to his dying day.

If I am not mistaken, Congressional immunity from prosecution for his testimony could also keep that from happening.
