Posted on 11/12/2012 3:42:46 PM PST by maggief
Broadwells notes to Jill Kelley were full of cat fight stuff, a source tells Michael Dalybut there were no overt threats, and Petraeus was barely mentioned. So why did the FBI jump in?
The messages were instead what the source terms kind of cat fight stuff.
More like, Who do you think you are? You parade around the base You need to take it down a notch, according to the source, who was until recently at the highest levels of the intelligence community and prefers not to be identified by name.
The base being MacDill Air Force Base in Florida, where Kelley serves as an unpaid social liaison. The source reports that the emails did make one reference to Gen. David Petraeus, but it was oblique and offered no manifest suggestion of a personal relationship or even that he was central to the senders spite.
Kelley herself seemed mystified as to what was behind the emails, much less who sent them.
I dont know who this person is and I dont want to keep getting them, she told the FBI, as recounted by the source.
When the FBI friend showed the emails to the cyber squad in the Tampa field office, her fellow agents noted that the absence of any overt threats.
No, Ill kill you or burn your house down, the source says. It doesnt seem really that bad.

Is this going to end with her driving hundreds of miles wearing a depends?
This is not unrelated to Benghazi, in my opinion. Obama had originally suggested that the GOP pick Petraeus as the VP nominee, and was clearly planning this as a steamy “October Surprise,” which is exactly what he did to win more than one election in Chicago in his past. Holder is said to have known about this very early on, and it’s not believable that he didn’t tell Obama, Jarrett and Axelrod.
Obama didn’t need to use this “surprise” because Petraeus was not the VP candidate, but when Benghazi came along, Obama knew that he’d been handed a golden opportunity. This discredits Petraeus in a big way, if not literally, at least in popular opinion, and diminishes the impact of any Benghazi testimony that might come out. And now of course Petraeus has postponed his testimony for an indefinite time while he “gets his life together”...give me a break.
Was hoping for at least a “bitch, I’ll kill you” or “mess you up” or “you don’t know who you are f**ing with”.
drama these days are so anti-climactic. /s
“revealed” I guess to the Daily Beast, but not to the rest of the world
“Is this going to end with her driving hundreds of miles wearing a depends?”
Maybe, but it won’t be Broadwell doing the driving, IMO.
Because the Chicago Thugs were aware of rumors. Used the emails to get
The proof, under some made up reason. The emails were the proof.
How do u explain toeing the party line about the video.
If u can’t, I can. It’s called blackmail or leverage.
Betrayus was being blackmailed to toe the party line.
So, it does involve Benghazi
Why didn’t Jill go to Petraeus instead of the FBI?
So the Daily Beast writer or source does not think that the head of the CIA having an affair and being compromised rose to the level of anything that should have even been reported on at all.
My prediction at this time is that we will find out that all the War on Terror tactics denounced by Obama such as black sites and extreme interrogation techniques were still in place with the regimes approval, despite their so called executive orders. Benghazi has entered it’s third scenario. First it was an out of hand movie review. Second it was a terrorist attack against a consulate. Third, the truth, a jailbreak of a CIA black site. The regime will be caught lying big time to the American people, plus their hypocritical attacks on the Bush administration will be exposed big time.
Ok, so the FBI allocated man hours to an investigation because the agent was friends with Kelly. What are Kelly's political affiliations and connections?
The best explanation is found if you ever saw the movie “Goodfellas” The scene when Henry Hill and Jimmy Conway were going to throw the guy into the lion cage in Tampa. The guys sister worked for the FBI, so Henry and Jimmy ended up doing time.
This appears to be "stalking" and "bullying"....and says "there's a nut on the loose"
Along with the Kelley social circuit, one might look at the twin sister’s ex-husband for political connections.
No, I would not want to speculate.
We'll all know soon enough.
Oops, there a knock at my door.;-)
Then why did the FBI against its better judgment get involved.
Ahah -- a third female got into the mix -- the FBI agentress.
Better judgment now goes out the window.
I hope this Kelly broad is happy with herself and the role she played in bringing down her General friend.
There goes her access to power.
HOW MANY MAN HOURS HAVE THEY SPENT ON FINDING WHAT HAPPEND IN BENGHAZI SEPT 11TH 2012?...................*****crickets*****
Whatever personal mistakes Petraeus made, he served this country extraordinarily well for 38+ years. Its really sad that his career is ending in this sordid way. I sincerely hope he does not pull an Admiral Boorda. But I almost gets the feeling someone is trying to drive him to it.
In this case, there's the emails and according to this that's all they based opening a case on. That's a far cry from someone who admits they went to a loan shark and can prove they've been paying known felons with connections to the Mob.
I guess they're awash with money these days, though, so maybe it's not difficult to justify putting man hours into something like it has been sometimes in the past.
“according to the source, who was until recently at the highest levels of the intelligence community and prefers not to be identified by name.”
Anyone else wonder if Petraeus himself is the source for this story?
You sound pretty experienced :-)
I’ve watched a few Novellas.
You can’t get that from American Soap Operas!
Is there video of Petraeus saying the video was the cause?
I don’t know if there is video. He testified to committees. That is where
It has been reported by FOX, that he said it was a mob angered by the
Anti- Muslim video.
Yes, and if I recall, a Democrat on the committee that heard him speak claimed that Petraeus said it was the video. But I have not heard him say it nor did I read that anyone else said he said it. whew.
I have not heard him say it in public, but reports are he told the committee
that lie. Don’t u recall how angry GOP congressmen were after his testimony.
Is it just me, or does “unpaid social liason” sound like a madam?
That’s my take...I wonder what kind of things happened at her “parties.” The twins sound like they were living high on the hog and playing powerful me and their money. Apparently Broadwell knew about it...
...powerful MEN and their money...
