The Media’s Petraeus Story: Nothing Could Be More Far-Fetched Simply on Prima Facie Evidence

 

 

” Clearly we are in deep waters here: This involves political intrigue at the highest level and has profound national security implications, involving the directorship of the CIA and clandestine operations, intelligence reports, multi-billion dollar expenditures and US efforts to stabilize client regimes and destabilize target regimes. CIA intelligence reports identifying allies and enemies are critical to shaping global US foreign policy. Any shift at the top of the US empire’s operational command can and does have strategic importance.

The ‘outing’ of General Allen, the military commander in charge of Afghanistan, the US main zone of military operations occurs at a crucial time, with the scheduled forced withdrawal of US combat troops and when the Afghan ‘sepoys’, the soldiers and officers of the puppet Karzai regime, are showing major signs of disaffection, is clearly a political move of the highest order.

What are the political issues behind the beheading of these two generals? Who benefits and who loses? “

Mark Steyn: Jill Kelley For Secretary Of State

 

 

 ” Anyway, I blow hot and cold on the Petraeus sex scandal. Initially, it seemed the best shot at getting a largely uninterested public to take notice of the national humiliation and subsequent cover-up over the deaths of American diplomats and the sacking of our consulate in Benghazi. On the other hand, everyone involved in this sorry excuse for a sex scandal seems to have been too busy emailing each other to have had any sex. The FBI was initially reported to have printed out 20,000 to 30,000 pages of emails and other communications between Gen. John Allen, U.S. commander in Afghanistan, and Jill Kelley of Tampa, one-half of a pair of identical twins dressed like understudies for the CENTCOM mess hall production of “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.” Thirty thousand pages! The complete works of Shakespeare come to about three-and-a-half-thousand pages, but American officials can’t even have a sex scandal without getting bogged down in the paperwork. “

 

 

This is like “Army Wives” meets “Jersey Shore ” Holy Cow .

 

 

 

ANOTHER PROMINENT MILITARY FAMILY LINKED TO JILL KELLEY’S SISTER

 

” This connection between Natalie and another family at the top of CENTCOM comes in addition to General David Petraeus and General John Allen. As previously reported by Breitbart News, Jill Kelley may have used her influence to have both former CIA Director General Petraeus and General Allen to speak favorably on her twin’s behalf during her custody battle.

Petraeus was in the midst of leading the investigation into the Benghazi mission attack when he took time to write a letter of support for Ms. Khawam. The generals wrote flowery testaments to Natalie’s parenting skills based on observations of her behavior at social functions. The letters stand in stark contrast to the evidence presented in the case and to Judge Neal Kravitz’s ruling where he deemed:

Ms. Khawam appears to lack any appreciation or respect for the importance of honesty and integrity in her interactions with her family, employers, and others with whom she comes in contact. The court fully expects that Ms. Khawam’s pattern of misrepresentations about virtually everything, including the most important aspects of her life, will continue indefinitely.In the same case, her twin, Jill Kelley, was ruled to be a “patently biased and unbelievable witness.” “

 

 

” Jill Kelley, the Tampa socialite caught up in the David Petraeus scandal, sent an email to Mayor Bob Buckhorn scolding the police for releasing to the media phone calls that included her phone number and address.

The email, one of several between Kelley and Buckhorn since 2011, was made available by the mayor’s office Friday. The email was sent Wednesday, a day after Kelley emailed the mayor seeking help with media staking out her Bayshore Boulevard home.

In the latter email, Kelley said “my family has been put through the ringer, and my kids are scared. … And to put insult to injury, your police dept gave the local 911 tapes to the press!”

Woman in Petraeus scandal visited White House

” The two women at the center of the David Petraeus scandal — the biographer with whom he had an
extramarital affair and the socialite who received worrisome emails that led investigators to uncover the illicit relationship — visited the White House on separate and apparently unrelated occasions.

  Jill Kelley, the Tampa, Fla., socialite who initiated the investigation that revealed the affair, and her twin sister had two “courtesy” meals at the White House mess as guests of a midlevel White House aide in September and October, the official said. Kelley and her family
also received a White House tour on the weekend before the Nov. 6 election. “

Sex Scandals — What About The Women Who Help Create Them?

 

 

 

 

” Paula Broadwell hit the big 4-0 on Friday, the same day President Obama accepted her lover’s resignation. She is a soldier herself, a Lieutenant Colonel in the United States Army Reserves, promoted in August of 2012. A glance at her resume leads you to think of her as intelligent, with degrees from West Point and Harvard, she even worked with the FBI at one point, albeit with the Joint Terrorism Task Force, but my mercy the irony. She has two children ages six and four.

So where are the pundits calling her a fool? Where is the criticism? Where is the same public humiliation, on the same level that has been meted out against General Petraeus? I can not help but observe one simple fact, when it comes to affairs society seems to criticize the men who have them, way more then the women they have them with. Is it because women are considered delicate? Do we consider the sexual appetites of males to be overwhelming, thus women are excused? Basically he made her do it. I think this logic is anti-women. I’m not saying that to be controversial, or even chauvinistic, I truly believe that women are capable of doing anything and even more then men. That would include weathering the brunt of criticism of an affair. “

Beyond The Sexcapades There Is Something Deadly Serious Going On.

 

 

 

 ” Now Mrs. Broadwell’s father has stepped from his home in Bismarck, North Dakota, and informed the New York Daily Newsthat his daughter is the target of “character assassination.” This I cannot conceive, but I agree with him as he went on to say, “This is about something else entirely, and the truth will come out.” He added, “There’s a lot more here than meets the eye.” Ben Stein says the eye should be on Attorney General Eric Holder. Yes, perhaps, but I would keep an eye on Benghazi, and forget not Mrs. Broadwell’s revelations about Libyans being held prisoner in Benghazi by our CIA.”

Human Events

                            offers us this handy playbill to help us keep track of the Jill Kelley Saga . 

 

 

 ” 1. Retired Army Gen. David H. Petraeus had an affair with his biographer Army Reserve Lt. Col. Paula D. Broadwell (nee Kranz). The relationship began when Petraeus was the U.S. theater commander in Afghanistan and continued through his tenure as CIA director. Her book, “All In: The Education of Gen. David Petraeus” is a silly book. But, at least now we know why it is so silly.

2. Broadwell sent cloaked emails to Gilberte K. “Jill” Kelley (nee Khawam) a Tampa, Fla., society hostess. The authoress suspected the Lebanese-born surgeon’s wife of romancing Petraeus.

3. Kelley hosted social events for Tampa-based U.S. Central Command, while Petraeus was its commanding general.”

 

And Why Is No One Asking ?

 

 

 

” There’s no implication that the South Korean government has anything to do with the growing scandal that involves Kelly, Allen, Petraeus, and Paula Broadwell, Petraeus’s biographer and alleged mistress. But her work on behalf of the South Koreans may explain some of the 20,000 to 30,000 pages of e-mails between her and Allen that the Defense Department‘s Inspector General‘s office is investigating now.

Kelley does drive a Mercedes sedan with license plates that say “Honorary Consul,” and sheinvoked her honorary diplomatic status in a Nov. 11 911 call when she was complaining about trespassers on her private property.

“I’m an honorary consul general, so I have inviolability, so they should not be able to cross my property,” she told the 911 operator. “I don’t know if you want to get diplomatic protection involved as well, because that’s against the law to cross my property because, you know, it’s inviolable.”

“Ok, no problem, I’ll let the officer know,” the 911 operator responded.”

Here Fishy Fishy …

 

 

 ” Just when I thought the Petraeus story couldn’t get any weirder, along comes a story in the Wall Street Journal reporting that an FBI official allegedly sent shirtless pictures of himself to Jill Kelley, the Tampa woman who has emerged as a key player in this increasingly bizarre drama: ”

 

 

 

 

” So that’s strange. But here’s what is truly weird: The emails in question don’t seem to be a big deal.Wired‘s Kim Zetter says they “reportedly told Kelley to ‘back off’ and ‘stay away’ from the unnamed man.” According to the Journal:

The accusatory emails, according to officials, were sent anonymously to an account shared by Ms. Kelley and her husband. Ms. Broadwell allegedly used a variety of email addresses to send the harassing messages to Ms. Kelley, officials said.

One asked if Ms. Kelley’s husband was aware of her actions, according to officials. In another, the anonymous writer claimed to have watched Ms. Kelley touching “him” provocatively underneath a table, the officials said.

A Daily Beast story cites a source “who was until recently at the highest levels of the intelligence community” characterizing the emails as “More like, ‘Who do you think you are? … You parade around the base … You need to take it down a notch.'”

Either way, that doesn’t sound like the kind of thing that merits an FBI investigation, bureau officials’insistence notwithstanding.

One more thing: The New York Daily News spoke with Broadwell’s father, Paul Krantz, who told the paper: “This is about something else entirely, and the truth will come out.”

“There is a lot more that is going to come out,” said Krantz, claiming he was not allowed to elaborate. “You wait and see. There’s a lot more here than meets the eye.”

I suspect we’ll know more soon — and I wonder if what we learn will reflect well on the FBI.”

 

 

This case gets more odiferous by the day .

 

And Again , We Ask , Who Is Jill Kelley ?

 

 

 

 

Top U.S. Commander In Afghanistan Investigated

 

 

” The top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, General John Allen, is under investigation for alleged inappropriate communication with a woman at the center of the sex scandal involving former CIA Director David Petraeus, a senior U.S. defense official said on Tuesday.

The U.S. official said the FBI uncovered between 20,000 and 30,000 pages of communications – mostly emails and spanning from 2010 to 2012 – between Allen and Jill Kelley, who has been identified as a long-time friend of the Petraeus family and a Tampa, Florida, volunteer social liaison with military families at MacDill Air Force Base.

It was Kelley’s complaints about harassing emails from the woman with whom Petraeus had had an affair, Paula Broadwell, that prompted an FBI investigation, ultimately alerting authorities to Petraeus’ involvement with Broadwell. Petraeus resigned from his job on Friday. “

Why Did The FBI Hack Paula Broadwell’s Private Email Account?

 ” The Washington Post reports that F.B.I officials described the e-mails as “threatening and harassing” but not specific enough to warrant criminal charges.

Before long, F.B.I. investigators discovered that the anonymous account belonged to Broadwell, as noted by the New York Times.

Question(s) ? …  If the emails were  “not specific enough to warrant criminal charges” why wasn’t the matter dropped immediately ? Beyond that , why was the FBI involved with a , initially at least, routine case of harassment ? Isn’t that a matter for local law enforcement ?

Because the sender’s account had been registered anonymously, investigators had to use forensic techniques — including a check of what other e-mail accounts had been accessed from the same computer address — to identify who was writing the e-mails.

Eventually they identified Ms. Broadwell as a prime suspect and obtained access to her regular e-mail account.

Question(s)? … Prime suspect in what ? It was stated prior that the emails were “not specific enough to warrant criminal charges” … Oops , there’s that phrase again … So after quickly determining that  , one , the emails and attendant threats were “not specific enough to warrant criminal charges” , and two , that said non-prosecutable emails originated from Paula Broadwell , the FBI still found the need to further delve into Ms Broadwell’s personal life by hacking into ALL of her email accounts even after the determination had been made that no crime had been committed . Any fishermen out there ? 

The rest, as they say, is history. After the FBI discovered sexually explicit emails from an account they traced to Petraeus, investigators concluded that he was involved in an affair with Broadwell.”

This entire affair exudes the aroma of a putrid pelagic and we are not talking moral judgments here , just political ones . This all circles right around to a post of ours on Saturday about the need , or lack thereof of publicly trashing two families’ lives in pursuit of a political agenda . 

 By the way , one last question , Who Is Jill Kelley ?
