Hmmm it seems Petraeus had more than just an affair. I generally do not pay attention to men in power positions affairs ... yet it seems in his eagerness to put her in place as confidante and mistress he did breech security and she flaunted it ...both in her brazen behaviors, cultural behaviors and on her fb page. She could have ****ed everything up over there.
Aides noted she had no journalistic credentials and took bold liberties with her access. That could have impacted the work in Afghanistan and certainly morale and team work.
I am disappointed in Petraeus ... not so much if he had really fallen for some one by chance yet he put her in place it seems ... and unqualified because he wanted her.
He gave access to this woman who had no sense of judgement and did not have the C-V for such.
It was all busted when the mistress began cat fighting with another woman over Petraeus.
Aides were stunned by the close access that Broadwell was granted — and that she occasionally flaunted. At the same time, some were unimpressed by her reporting style and thin journalistic résumé.
“Her credentials didn’t add up,” said a former Petraeus staff member who was interviewed a number of times by Broadwell. “I was underwhelmed. It was surprising to me that she was his official biographer.”
Peter Mansoor, a former executive officer on Petraeus’s staff, said he thought the general’s uncharacteristic confidence in an untested writer was “strange.”
