Paula Broadwell, the biographer with whom former CIA director David Petraeus had an extramarital affair, abandoned her bid for a doctorate from Harvard in 2007, failing to advance to PhD candidacy after four semesters at the Kennedy School of Government, and now faces the prospect of an ethical review at Kings College London, where she has resumed pursuit of a doctorate. The revelations about her mixed academic record add to the portrait of a principal figure in the Petraeus scandal who has refused to respond to multiple Globe requests for comment and hasnt spoken publicly since disclosure of her relationship with

oh you are probably right.
You could say she snatched a General.
Whenever you have the LA Times and Boston Globe saying, “Look at the women!”, that means you should be looking somewhere else.
Especially since she was a West Point Grad. A far superior academic institution than Harvard. Something smells here.
[Paula Broadwell] was not someone you would think of as a critical thinker. I dont remember anything about her as a student. I remember her as a personality.
- Paula Broadwell’s former professor at Harvard. Broadwell is the biographer with whom former CIA director David Petraeus had an extramarital affair
I think Broadwells problem is that her job was keeping an eye on Petraeus with her legs open and her mouth shut. She blew it when she sent e-mails to hostess Jill telling her to back off her man. It escalated until the evil Republicans found out about it and then it was all over. Now Broadwell is no use to Obama criminal enterprise she is being reminded to keep her mouth shut.
Paula probably thinks the sex was great, but does he respect her as a person?
"She blew it..."
They usually smear a person like this before their testimony. Remember the Clinton days?
On the serious side, she may truly be someone who is not a critical thinker. She had a clearance, and she had the knowledge that unauthorized possession of classified information can result in a fine and/or prison. Guess what? It appears that she had unauthorized classified information on her personal computer. Not a good example of critical thinking at all! Whew! Sucks to be her right now.
Are they attacking Broadwell for having children? She probably thought she could do it all—write a dissertation, be a wife, serve in the military, etc.
Her boys are how old? Five and six? Or six and seven?
I watched a video of her from the book tour for “All In.” She did not impress me. Sounded like a teen, or freshman college student giving a book report. Definitely not a brain. She was probably helped through West Point the same way Hillary was helped through Yale Law — to fulfill the female graduate quota.
After reading the full article, I have to wonder about these liberal professors talking about someone’s private academic record. Has the Globe done any reporting on Obama’s bio? Haha. Right.
Did Paula Broadwell adopt her children or what?
That is a point that keeps me curious. Despite what I believe about Broadwell, I have to remember who is attacking her.
