Petraeus Scandal: Paula Broadwell in Classified Document Probe
ABC ^

Posted on 11/14/2012 12:20:06 PM PST by nuconvert

Paula Broadwell, the author who allegedly had an affair with former CIA Director David Petraeus, is suspected of storing significant amounts of military documents, including classified material, at her home, potentially in violation of federal law.

A source familiar with case told ABC News that Broadwell admitted to the FBI she took the documents from secure government buildings. The government demanded that they all be given back, and when federal agents descended on her North Carolina home on Monday night it was a pre-arranged meeting.

By the way, she was either working for Team Marxist in the White House to do a HIT on Petraeus, OR she was being paid by a foreign source for information on our counter-terrorism activities. If the latter, it’s entirely possible that the attack on our Embassy resulted from information she supplied to that foreign source; prison, Stevens’ weapons brokering, etc..

Getting a bit deeper into the weeds here ..... P4 better hope none of it came from him ... he says not, but their affair gave her opportunity.

So, Hillary and Panetta are meeting outside of the United States. Harder to hear what they’re talking about that way.

How come no one ever wonders if she was working for Team America? LOL...its all speculation and we probably will never hear the truth.
Another media-perverted story destined to permanent filing in the Grassy Knoll Bin of Conspiracies!
Americans were killed and all we get are “sex” stories.

“Maybe she had a SCIF at her house.”

Supposedly, she had a top secret clearance and was in MI.

What did she do intel wise besides bring it home to share with others?

It’s also entirely possible (and IMHO more likely) that she’s been in the intel community so long that she got the “I’m special’s” and figured, “I know the rules, I’ll keep them safe; besides, I’m cool and get to look at this sexy intel stuff, and P4 will cover for me because, you know, I’m writing a BOOK and stuff!”

Seen it too many times: people with TS/SCI (and higher) getting cocky and careless.

Almost every document written in the US Army these days is classified. The memo announcing the upcoming softball tournament probably has “FOUO” (For Official Use Only) on it. FOUO is considered classified. They did this to keep everyone from handing everything to the press.
Broadwell is a Reserve Officer. She graduated from West Point and was probably on the path to the stars. Something happened to her military career. Maybe it’s as simple as the fact that she got married and had kids. Every Army Officer dreams of being a general. She wasn’t going to be a four star general in the Reserves. Maybe she wanted to live vicariously through Petraeus by having an affair.

I think it’s more sinister than that. If you look at how she wormed her way into Petraeus deepest personal life, this was more than a book writing mission. Sounds like a classic ‘honey trap’ operation to me. Question is, WHO was paying her; possibly FOREIGN source to get information? Note how hot and heavy the FBI is raiding her house. This is more than a fling thing.

If she really fancied herself as a great or evolving writer, she MAY have just stockpiled the secrets to use in future books. That is a naive, but possible, explanation. But that is giving her much benefit of the doubt, and I tend to agree with you that there is likely a more sinister motive/explanation here.

A great scene in Team America was when the two female fighter pilots got into a ‘cat fight’ right in the middle of a ‘dog fight’.

She’d probably enjoy that. Waterboarded with a whiffle ball in her mouth.

I think her roots and ethnicity are raghead. I will not be surprised to learn that she’s a muzzie agent. Anything they might do, regardless how low-down, in the cause to defeat us infidels, is considered “righteous” in muzzielands.

MY bad! It’s the Kelley sisters that have the raghead name connection.

That, however does not negate the possisility that Broadwell was “sharing” classified info with people she SHOULDN’T have.

The homecoming queen in Bismarck ND was a Muzzie?

Sounds like a real stretch to me.

If you go online, you will see it spelled both ways...take your pick. (not that it matters a whole lot, does it?)

The twins are Lebanese. Their parents moved to the U.S. in the 1970’s....before you get too carried away, you might want to do some background to see if they’re Lebanese christians.

It’s one of those things that they can use against you if they want to. Most FOUO stuff is no problem until the boss gets mad at you and wants you to go away. Then, FOUO is a big deal. For a while, we had to make sure there was no FOUO left on top of the desk when you went home at night.

They are Lebanese Christians. By all reports, they moved here along with their parents.

My guess is that she had more than FOUO on her computer.

Since she's reported to have told friends she and the General have two other books under consideration, I'd say that's common sense, not naive.

I truly do not mean to be judgemental, but “by their fruit ye shall know them.” If they truly are born again and trusting Christ as their Savior, wonderful.

But out here among the plain old meat and potatoes folks, some of the stuff that’s becoming known about these gals makes this old boy think they are much in need of an altar call.

Please don’t get me wrong. If anyone on this planet needs a Savior, and has one, and is eternally grateful for it, it is I, me, Old Watashi!

But doggone it, to my mind, if they ARE saved, they aren’t letting their light shine very bright, are they now? Or am I missing something?
