David Petraeus ex-mistress, Paula Broadwell, left a female news photographer with a bloodied forehead Monday in a confrontation outside the biographers North Carolina home.
The 40-year-old West Point grad smacked the photographer with the drivers side door of her Nissan Pathfinder SUV.
I had my camera and in all the chaos the door slammed and I got hit in the head with the flash, said Nell Redmond, a freelancer for the Associated press.
Redmond suffered a small cut on her forehead in the incident, witnessed by a Daily News reporter.
The encounter occurred just before 2 p.m. as Broadwell, wearing sunglasses and a cream-colored turtleneck sweater, tried to avoid reporters and photographers by sneaking out a side door of her house in a ritzy enclave of Charlotte.

Paula Broadwell, the biographer for disgraced CIA Director General Petraeus who’s found herself smack-dab in the middle of a scandal dominating headlines for the past week, has hired Glover Park Group’s managing directors, Dee Dee Myers and Joel Johnson, for communications counsel, the WPP crisis shop told Ad Age.

I’m liking her more and more....
AP Reporter vs. Devious Slut
Sometimes it’s *really* hard to take sides in a conflict.
Reporter learns that in the proper hands, an SUV can be a deadly weapon.
Oh well. You stick your face where it doesn’t belong and bad things can happen
The feel-good story of the day!
It was the SUV’s fault....;-)
“David Petraeus ex-mistress, Paula Broadwell, left a female news photographer with a bloodied forehead Monday”
I can’t find a hero in this sentence?
A celebrity loving media whore strikes a celebrity chasing photographer whore.
“You stick your face where it doesnt belong and bad things can happen”
I think they are both finding that it in their own way.
“Cage-Rage Match of The Month”.
No rubber helmets or lobster bibs (like the Clintoon Interns were issued by the HR Office.)
Hey, hey, Paula... way to go!
Given Dee Dee Myers's famous bimbo eruption expertise, shouldn't she be the one representing Petraeus?
Animal Rights Drone Shot Down
Two in a row!
She hit that broad well, din’t she?
I am liking Paula Broadwell more and more.
I would like to see her on The View!
I’d pick the slut every time.
>> Id pick the slut every time.
Over a journalist, that would normally be a safe call (unless the devious slut WAS a journalist herself, which is sometimes the case).
But Broadwell compromised national security. She loses points for that. LOTS of points.
ahh thats to bad...
I'm calling this a job well-done.
I just meant in the general sense. (no pun intended)
Nell? Or, Neil?
I hope the person sues her. Tramp.
>> no pun intended
I don’t believe you. :-)
I wonder how many Freepers will catch the reference.
Well, no. That would be Petraeus. He's the one with the responsibility. And he violated it. Not to mention her.
Possibly I've just missed it, but I haven't seen much discussion of his security screening.
Apparently it was an open secret around his headquarters that he was banging the biographer. These things are almost never really secret.
Who does the security screening for the head of the CIA??? The Hardy Boys? We can't catch an obvious security issue like this before he gets confirmed?
No, she didn't. She may have repeated some pillow talk, but her partner who was thinking with his small(er) head was maybe the one who compromised national security.
Anyway. Looks like some teef went missing too.
(enuff catty remarks. for now.....)
She hit an annoying reporter, so she must be a great person.
Except for betraying her family and interfering in someone else's family, and sending threatening anonymous emails, and stealing classified information.
Real class act, that Paula Broadwell.
I don’t think the photographer understands that you can’t block the target’s ability to go where they want. When you do that, you verge on what is legally defined as kidnapping.
While judges don’t like exhibitions of violence, they aren’t going to tolerate a reporter confining someone in their own car against their will either.
I can neither confirm nor deny your accusation. :)
Too bad it wasn’t a skull fracture!
I didn't look beforehand, but as soon as I read that I knew this was written by a woman......
Hey Paula by Paul and Paula
Hey, hey Paula, I wanna marry you
Hey, hey Paula, no one else will ever do
I’ve waited so long for school to be through
Paula, I can’t wait no more for you
My love, my love
Hey Paul, I’ve been waiting for you
Hey, hey, hey Paul, I want to marry you too
If you love me true, if you love me still
Our love will always be real
My love, my love
True love means planning a life for two
Being together the whole day through
True love means waiting and hoping that soon
Wishes we’ve made will come true
My love, my love
Well, it is North Carolina. ;^)
Paula Broadwell is a former Army intelligence officer, and a current reserve officer.
She had confidential material on her laptop computer.
She divulged classified material in public speeches.
She compromised the security of a flag officer.
She DAMN SURE IS guilty of security breeches.
But, yes, Petraeus is the worse scoundrel in the affair. No question.
Nevertheless, they both deserve to be shot.
Hey, hey Paula,
I’m going marry you some day.
Hey, hey Paul . . . etc
What a headline! In fact, as the door was being closed, the snoopy camerawoman shoved her camera forward. The door then hit the flash of the camera, which in turn cut the forehead of the photographer. From out of that to get Broadwell smacked a reporter in the head with a car door is quite a reach.
Now that there is funny.
Breaches are security violations. Breeches are trousers.
Okay, I have to admire that.
idiot reporters should know better than to put their heads in the way of a car door.
>> Now that there is funny.
Thanks for pointing that out.
I dunno... she doesn’t look fat or trailer-trashy enough for Bubba to be interested.
