Petraeus’ mistress bragged just weeks ago of future book collaboration, source says
Fox News’ source attended a dinner Oct. 27 at the Washington Ritz-Carlton, where Broadwell was talking up the future projects.
She said that they had two book ideas they were pursuing, and they hoped to publish again sometime in the next two years, Fox News’ source said.
The annual event is hosted by the Office of Strategic Services Society, which, according to the event flyer, celebrates the historic accomplishments of the OSS during World War II the first organized effort by the United States to implement a centralized system of strategic intelligence.
After the dinner, Fox News was told, Broadwell appeared confident and at ease while mingling with guests, hardly the portrait of a women who was deeply shaken by the end of an affair.
She was elated, beaming that night,” the dinner attendee told Fox News. “She was having her picture taken with guests. She would disappear for a few minutes and then return, very much enjoying the attention.
The source who attended the event was struck by how openly Broadwell spoke about Petraeus, adding that she seemed to have personal insights about the CIA director: She said he was unsure of himself sometimes. She said he was concerned about the publics perception of him.
OSS Society Dinner in The Washington Post (10/27)
The Office of Strategic Services (OSS) was formed during WWII to coordinate espionage activities for all branches of the Armed Forces. It transitioned into the **CIA** after the War.
In one of the clips of her speeches which Fox has been showing, she talks about having top security clearance and how people were confused as to whether she was in Afghanistan as military or as a journalist.
She is a also candidate for a Ph.D. in War Studies at King’s College London. On Greta last night, Petraeus’ former aide mentioned that the “affair” began after he left the military and that the book was originally supposed to be about something else (war strategy maybe?) and only later did Petraeus realize that it was a biography about him.
***She said he was unsure of himself sometimes. She said he was concerned about the publics perception of him.*** Sounds like he was the perfect candidate for emotional entanglement and then blackmail.
I really don’t think this is about an “affair,” but about espionage.
