Skip to comments.Paula Broadwell’s drive and resilience hit obstacles

Paula Broadwell was a rising star who seemed destined for a sparkling career in foreign policy. A West Point graduate who excelled in triathlons, she was pursuing a doctorate at Harvard University and had found a mentor in Gen. David H. Petraeus, an iconic U.S. military leader.
But in 2007, Broadwell was asked to leave the doctoral program at Harvard, where she had first met Petraeus a year earlier, because her course work didnt meet its demanding standards, according to people familiar with what happened there.

Dear WaPo. It would appear that your analysis of Ms Broadwhatever is correct. She is no star - academic or otherwise.
But she did manage to graduate from West Point...not exactly an easy place to get through.
Now, how about starting to look at the Dork-in-Chief, Mr MegaFake.
His books have been proven to be lies.
His two photoshopped birth certificates are lies (to those of us who actually have the brains to know how those things are done.)
The dork cannot finish a sentence without his telepromptor - how exactly did he get into - and get out of - Harvard law?
His father (who is not actually his father, but you know that) had no money. Where did the monies come from that allowed this pot smoking piece of dung to get where he got?
Not to mention Chicago - which really should serve as the next bombing range for our armed forces.
Get to work, MSM slimes.
Petraeus has told former staff officers and friends that his affair with Broadwell did not begin until he retired from the military and joined the CIA in September 2011.
“But she did manage to graduate from West Point...not exactly an easy place to get through”
Please, a chick in the Tailhook era? She just had to avoid morbid obesity and she as golden.
She was valedictorian in hs. I’d assume that’s enough to get most through WP.
I think she is collateral damage.
My interest in who she is....is her possibility of being a deliberate plant to discredit the General.....
That is a Far far reach seems to me.
Any links to her years prior to WP on FR?
I would still strongly suspect the faculty of Harvard's judgement of West Point graduates. Harvard's Faculty are likely sexists too (heterophobes).
Bull hockey...she was a conniving witch who played on her looks and seductive ways to climb the ladder. She is the exact reason that working women get a bad name. When all is said and done she will be shown to be the ruthless deceitful cheating liar that has no ability to be discreet
She could likely whoop Bammy at bassetball or golf.
Starting to make more sense. A flameout from a doctoral program in the military is the kiss of death to a career, not to mention a huge blow to the ego which could have precipitated her blasé attitude toward security and the UCMJ.
Without knowing anything about the high school she graduated from, being valedictorian doesn’t mean much. But, credit where credit is due, she did finish at WP and she did get into the doctoral program at Harvard.
I know wiki is dubious but here it is
Why did Petraeus accept going to CIA? Becuse his leftwing-wifey was appointed to a gov't gig by Fauxcahontas?
I think more of her if she’s the sort to keeps on going after diversity and doesn’t have everything handed to her on a platter like she’s some sort of foreign exchange student from Indonesia or a fake American Indian of some sort.
Coordinated hit pieces from left wing media on a woman in a sex scandal. Where have we seen this before?
