Paula Broadwell smacks photographer in forehead with car door
NYDN ^ | November 19, 2012 | ennifer H. Cunningham AND Bill Hutchinson

David Petraeus’ ex-mistress, Paula Broadwell, left a female news photographer with a bloodied forehead Monday in a confrontation outside the biographer’s North Carolina home.

The 40-year-old West Point grad smacked the photographer with the driver’s 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.

I am privileged to know a number of women who would have done the exact same thing or something similar with more force.

I'm calling this a job well-done.

Hey, hey, Paula...

I wonder how many Freepers will catch the reference.

But Broadwell compromised national security.

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?

But Broadwell compromised national security. She loses points for that. LOTS of points.

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.

I’m liking her more and more....

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 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

Lyrics:
Paul:
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

Paula:
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

Both:
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

In a somewhat surprising turn of events, former president Bill Clinton stepped
forward to defend Paula Broadwell and has asked her to write his biography.
