Petraeus friend Jill Kelley found place hosting military parties [financial woes]
St. Petersburg - Tampa Bay Times ^ | November 13, 2012 | Staff and wires

Posted on 11/13/2012 2:13:09 AM PST by Cincinatus' Wife

........... Since the Kelleys have been in Tampa, records show, one or both have been subjects of lawsuits nine times — including an $11,000 judgment against them that originated in Pennsylvania.

Ongoing cases, the court records show, include an indebtedness case from Chase Bank; a foreclosure case from Regions Bank; and a credit card case from FIA Card Services.

Not long after the couple arrived in Tampa, Jill Kelley and her identical twin sister, Natalie Khawam, appeared for a taping of the Food Network's reality show, Food Fight.

The segment featured sibling rivalry, with the twins cooking off against two brothers.

A food show, though, was not out of the realm for the sisters.

Growing up in Philadelphia, the sisters were among four children of a couple who had immigrated from Jounieh, Lebanon, in the mid 1970s. The family owned a Middle Eastern restaurant in Philadelphia called Sahara.

The year after the sisters appeared for the show's taping, the Kelleys moved in the Bayshore Boulevard home they had bought for about $1.5 million, property records show.

....... As news of her role in the Petraeus scandal broke Sunday, Jill Kelley was throwing a birthday party for one of her daughters. A media crush waited at the curb. A sole local TV crew remained Monday morning.

By then, the Kelleys had turned to national experts for help.

They hired Abbe Lowell, a Washington lawyer who has represented clients such as former presidential candidate John Edwards and lobbyist Jack Abramoff. And the couple are employing crisis PR person Judy Smith, who has represented big names like Monica Lewinsky, Michael Vick and Kobe Bryant.

Wow, I see the local newspaper finally checked their archives and the county public records. Took them long enough.

I wonder if this family had any contact with the Dunhams while they were reportedly in Lebanon. That would be funny.

“Middle eastern of some sort. Possibly Lebanese?”

I heard that Petraeus disregarded any sexual motives or spying on her part with the Middle East, claiming “I thought she said she was a Lesbian”.

Wow! There’s a lot more here but I still think this is all coming out now to cover up not only Benghazi BUT THE MASSIVE VOTER FRAUD that is SO OBVIOUS but the Republicans are SCARED to do anything about it so as not to be called RACISTS!!! Our country is doomed! I also can’t help thinking that the information on all these Generals being released is what was called “a purge” in the old Soviet Union???? Anybody else feel the same way????

“Something” very strange is underway, but I can’t nail it down, yet. Too many “pieces” floating around now and I can’t find the common glue thread to make them fit together. Yet.

Not really all that conplicated; we are seeing the beginning stages of Obama manifesting himself as the tyrant he is. You will see many more "pieces" emerge as he continues to brazenly violate every principle of law and decency in the process of grabbing all power and voiding the constitution.

At this point, it wouldn't shock me to see the American people meekly submit to a third Obama term.

That FBI agent, who has not been identified, has also come under scrutiny after it was discovered he had sent shirtless photographs of himself to Kelley, but “long before” this investigation, a law enforcement official told Reuters. The photographs were first reported by the Wall Street Journal.

The agent had never been on the Broadwell case, but had taken the information about the emails to the FBI cyber squad in Tampa, the law enforcement official said.

The FBI agent who works in the Tampa office apparently became frustrated at the pace of the investigation and complained to a member of Congress about it, the official said.

Take note. The 2 high ranking Navy officers took themselves out of it. Ham resigned. The other, it looks like, might have registered a formal, written complaint about being ordered either to stand down or for not receiving any order at all to help/rescue those guys in Libya.
The other high ranking officers who are being ‘outed’ in scandal are arabists and anti-Israel muslim sympathizers...including petraeus’ so-called mistress...who SUPPORT obama.
Just food for thought.

Something is just not right.

I’d say it was time for the “1” to get rid of those @ the top in the Military - one secret at a time (then I’d have to adjust my TinFoil Hat of course :-) ):

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-20308225

David Petraeus CIA scandal engulfs US Gen John Allen

“Top US commander in Afghanistan Gen John Allen is being investigated for allegedly sending “inappropriate emails” to a woman at the centre of a scandal ending the career of CIA head Gen David Petraeus, officials say.”

“A senior Pentagon official said up to 30,000 pages of emails and other documents from Gen Allen’s communications with Mrs Kelley between 2010 and 2012 were under review.”

30,000 pages?

Howza bout that We the People were just punked by the bipartisan oligarchy who “ re-elected” the man who will become the first dictator of the USA? The same Oligarchy who’d rather have all We the People watching the Jerry Springer Show at the Pentagon/CIA rather than confronting them about what just tanired in the 100’s , if not yet proven to be thousands of election precincts voting 100% D?

okay we get it!! A man had an affair with a younger woman who became jealous and sent mean emails to what she thought was her romantic rival.

I’m over it.

I read something yesterday that her sister has been in financial trouble too.

It sounds like the Dr has made some poor real estate decisions, but still likes to live large.

Fox & Friends explained it as follows: Jill Kelley was friends with an FBI agent. He is the one who sent her the shirtless photo of himself. She went to him as a friend about allegedly receiving threatening emails. HE was the whistleblower because he went to a senator in Washington who informed Eric Cantor.

(I'm just reporting what I heard on the television this morning. I have not analyzed the info nor do I have an opinion about it.)

That reminds me of a story.

The old ladies of my former church formed a little dinner club, and they used to go to a different ethnic restaurant every week. One of the restaurants they visited was a Lebanese eatery near the church.

They were sitting around together reminiscing one day, when one of the oldest ladies said, “We visited some nice restaurants, but the best time we had was at that lesbian place on Baum Boulevard.”

Even the pastor couldn’t stop laughing.

That reminds me of a story.

I was driving my daughters home from grade school when we passed by an orange VW van parked in someone's side yard with a for sale sign on it. They aren't too common a sight, and for my daughters the only other time they had seen one was in the movie Back to the Future. My older daughter said "Look! A lesbian terrorist vehicle!" We have called them that ever since.

According to Paula Broadwell’s father, there is much much more to this story than an affair and emails:

“But Broadwell’s father said Sunday his daughter is the victim of character assassination and implied the bombshell story is just a smoke screen for something bigger.

“This is about something else entirely, and the truth will come out,” Broadwell’s dad, Paul Krantz, told the Daily News outside his home in Bismarck, N.D.

“There is a lot more that is going to come out,” said Krantz, claiming he was not allowed to elaborate. “You wait and see. There’s a lot more here than meets the eye.”

Of course you can’t take it on face value because he could just be trying to deflect in defence of his daughter. But this is the first indication that there is some substance to the speculation we’ve been seeing on Fox and FreeRepublic about this being something far more insidious than just an affair by a horny old general. There is enough information in that statement that Broadwell’s father should be given a subpoena. Put up or shut up.
