Is One of the Women in the Petraeus Scandal a Spy? You’ll Never Believe Who’s Making the Case
The Blaze ^ | 11.13 | The Blaze

Posted on 11/13/2012 5:56:09 PM PST by RummyChick

Ever since it was revealed that Jill Kelley, the woman arguably at the center of the currently-unfolding drama rocking the U.S. government, is of Lebanese origin, Twitter users have asked whether she and CIA Director Petraeus’ mistress Paula Broadwell should be investigated for potential national security leaks.

Kelley first came into the public eye after Broadwell began sending her “threatening” emails regarding getting too close to Petreaus. But she really piqued the public’s interest after it was revealed that General John Allen also sent her thousands of pages of “inappropriate” emails, and an FBI agent even sent her shirtless photos of himself.

Now, Orcas George at the extremely left-leaning Daily Kos has begun building the case that Kelley’s actions are suspicious at best, and that if she was not in the employ of a foreign intelligence service, “the world’s spy agencies have collectively suffered a dereliction of duty.”

Mind you, The Daily Kos is the same site that called Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann’s investigation into Huma Abedin a “witch hunt,” despite tangible connections to the Muslim Brotherhood.

One of the sisters married Grayson Wolfe. “The Unstable One”.

I think there is a good case that can be made for one of them being a Spy. Just not sure whose side she would be working for....

I would not rule anything out.

Jill Kelly is the only common thread between the Betrayus scandal
and the breaking General Allen scandal. In addition, Jill’s sister recently
Received a $300,000 loan from a democratic congressman from RI.
Did Jill receive this $300,000 from her sister? More questions than answers.

Can anyone explain the relationship between Jill Kelley, her sister, and the Broadwell woman? Or does no one know the what their relationship actually is?

The link is to events in Syria ~ rebels backed by Obama and McCain are poised to begin wholesale extermination of Christian minorities ~ they've been doing this sporadically ever since the battle began.

The Russian Orthodox church, which has its own extensive connections with residual Christian groups in the Middle East has an interest in what's going on in Syria.

The twins may simply be working for Christian interests in the Middle East. Who is McCain working for? Anyone have an idea what this guy is up to? We know Obama is tied into the Islamic Brotherhood of course, but McCain? Does this have something to do with who sells Budweiser in Syria?

Kerry’s office said they were dating or engaged.

Are you dense or what?

Beck has been spot on in the middle east for the last two years.

Pfft, ever hear of Jarret or Huma Abedin? Van Jones ring your freakin bell?

At least you succeeded keeping the "Mormon" out of office.

at this point -
the relationship is that Broadwell was jealous of Kelley and thought Jill was after her man. I think she also sent an email to Allen.

Well, either way, it’s a good point that if she -wasn’t- a spy it was a major failed opportunity for some foreign agency.

I was on active duty for over 20 years. My wife and I were talking, and she said she never saw a woman wear "a negligee" to a social gathering with the 4-stars wife.

I swear, this woman is a Kim Kardashian wannabe. Think Bravo TV - "Real Nightmare Housewives of Tampa."

Being of Lebanese origin in Florida is hardly the equivalent of being a foreign spy. Many thousands Lebanese Christians immigrated to the US during the late 19th and early 20th century. I know of a few who are even Freepers. To seriously speculate that she may be a spy based solely on her Lebanese heritage is equivalent of suspecting everyone of Spanish descent of being Cuban spies.

Watching Hannity and a point was brought up I forgot. The Bhengazi operation was probably involved in gun running to Syria, or at least rounding up serious arms formerly sold to the Libyan government and rerouting them to Syria.

There's your direct connection to Petraeus ~ this guy was fully aware of what was going on at the CIA annex, if they were involved in gun running, and he might have DELAYED rescue ops on behalf of the Lebanese interests just to get that source of Syrian rebel , that is, Al Qaida, arms put to an end.

Petreaus girlfriend might have been working for THE OTHER SIDE ~ in which case her communications to Mrs. Kelley take on an ominous tone.

This thing could get worse before it gets better.

Just being Lebanese doesn’t mean you are a spy.

There is MUCH MUCH MUCH more to this story.

She could be a spy for the US. Or as another poster posted - there are an array of possibilities.

One thing is for sure - Her circumstances are VERY VERY VERY ODD.

and Kelley and her surgeon husband are supposedly broke as a result of their real estate holdings going to pot. So there’s financial motive. And now we’re told she made two 911 calls on Sunday to report prowlers/trespassers and raise “diplomatic protection” based on her phoney-baloney “honorary consul” status.

Weirder and weirder...

HER circumstances are very odd???? Traipsing around MacDill as a civilian? Sending thousands of emails to a general? Getting the FBI to launch an investigation about some emails she has received? Getting a big Dem to give her a 300k loan?

How many civilians are traipsing around the base where CENTCOM is located? What the hell is going on down there? How does this woman do this? Who is she working for?

McCain seems to be in favor of military intervention in every two-bit conflict across the globe. Odd behavior for an ex-military guy.

But there may be a very rational reason for McCain's bellicosity. Money.

Going back to the mid-nineties, McCain was vocal in calling for intervention in Kosovo. At the same time, it was also revealed that the Albanian-American National Council (or whatever) was a massive contributor to his campaign fund.

My guess is you'll find a similar movement -- the Syrian-American Friendship Foundation (or some such)-- financing him today.

Senator McCain is neither conservative nor liberal. He is an opportunist -- acutely sensitive to which side is buttering his bread.

Note that it won't necessarily be the American side...

To give McCain credit (if that’s what it is), I don’t think he’s a traitor, I just think he’s hopelessly dumb. He never saw a war he didn’t love, especially any Democrat-sponsored war that we fought on the wrong side.

He was also an enthusiastic supporter when Clinton went in and bombed Yugoslavia. I think I vaguely recall him approving it, too, when clinton bombed the aspirin factory.

Knowing no more than that Jill Kelley was central to the investigations of the former and current commanders in charge of Afghanistan, one being the current direct of the CIA, and then an FBI agent was also suspect..., this broad looked too good to be true, for the enemies of the U. S.

Lest we forget, her little tentacles reached all the way into the Oval office, when Benghazi came crashing down. This impacts the White House, the CIA, the FBI, the Department of Defense, and the State Department. It also has implications for the Senate.

I think the Democrats are going to have to take action, because this is expanding to the point nobody is going to look clean by the time it’s over.

Just remember folks. Nixon was a crook, so the Democrats will always have that...

Guy looks better all the time when you consider what the Democrats have stooped to.

People didn’t die in Watergate.
Espionage was not involved.
The CIA wasn’t involved
The FBI wasn’t involved
The State Department wasn’t dirty
The Department of Defense wasn’t made to look compromised

If the Daily KOS is on this, and we’re on this, and Diane Feinstein is on this, and the media is on this...

We just may get some answers.

I will have to admit, I can’t fathom the Daily KOS grasping this matter.

http://thecable.foreignpolicy.com/posts/2012/11/13/jill_kelley_is_an_honorary_consul_of_south_korea#.UKMCX2ePvhU.twitter

” The position of honorary consul is symbolic and has no official responsibilities, the official said.

“She does not work as a real consul. They play a role to improve the relationship between the ROK and the U.S.,” the official said. “Jill Kelley helped to get support for [the Korea-U.S. Free Trade Agreement] and she arranged meetings between the ROK Ambassador to Washington and local businessmen when the ROK Ambassador visited the Tampa area.”

” Kelley does drive a Mercedes sedan with license plates that say “Honorary Consul,” and she invoked her honorary diplomatic status in a Nov. 11 911 call when she was complaining about trespassers on her private property.

“I’m an honorary consul general, so I have inviolability, so they should not be able to cross my property,” she told the 911 operator. “I don’t know if you want to get diplomatic protection involved as well, because that’s against the law to cross my property because, you know, it’s inviolable.” “

Jill sure does have a great resume. If she isn’t spying she should consider it in the future. Her ability to infiltrate is quite amazing. That raises another issue...what’s with the husband?

If she is a spy, who is she spying for?

Foreign or Domestic?

From Kos link

…Connections. These people are essentially foreign nationals which is no crime or sin,but their aggressive attempt to get access to top military personel certainly should have raised a warning bell in both Petraus's and Allen's minds (or the minds of their staff.) Oh wait...

A military officer who is a former member of Petraeus’s staff said Kelley was a “self-appointed” go-between for Central Command officers with Lebanese and other Middle Eastern government officials. She was a fixture at social and charity events involving Central Command officials in Tampa. The officer said Kelley’s presence was often a bit puzzling to Petraeus’s staff,but the officer said there was never any indication that her relationship with the general was anything more than social.

The rest is at: http://www.washingtonpost.com/national/tampa-woman-was-hostess-to-the-military-but-had-deep-financial-troubles/2012/11/13/45cea33c-2d19-11e2-9ac2-1c61452669c3_story_1.html

The “self-appointed” part raised my eyebrows...people with such huge money troubles might be vulnerable to foreign influences whether or not they intended to become spies.

Looks like we’re back to the old saw, “Follow the money.”

Not Budweiser. More likely very high quality cannabis, opium, and marijuana which grow in the Bekaa valley of Lebanon, just a few miles from the Syrian border.

You don’t suppose?

The generals may have had a little business on the side? Or more likely, the Boardwell and Kelley girls and their husbands, were using the military to bring in enough expensive drugs to solve all of their financial problems and lust for stuff. High rolling ladies. LOL

BUT if the generals were compromised with sex and drugs and money, what political and security ramifications might there be? WE still don’t know what connections were forged by Kelley with those “Middle Eastern” leaders.
