She is sorry now for the fallout? You mean she didn't really consider the consequences of her overly ambitious and obviously selfish actions? She didn't mean to get all embedded with David (the General) even though she went to Harvard and is supposedly smart? She didn't mean to get a lucrative book deal probably traveling to Afghanistan on tax payer dollars? She didn't mean to lie on her resume about being number one in fitness at West Point and being a Harvard PhD student?
Yes, sure, I will believe all these things and I will also sell you the Brooklyn Bridge if you'd like to buy it.
What about Petraeus' wife and family, for Pete's sake?
Why do not feel sorry for her? Seems everyone is sorry after they get caught however she brought this one all by herself through her own jealousy. Too bad so sad. I hope her book bombs after the titilating drama subsides.
She knew having an affair would ruin both of their lives/careers. She has many more yrs of living with her actions. I do not know how petraeus plans to deal with it?
“A group of friends and neighbors welcomed Broadwell, her husband, Scott, and their young sons back to their home in Charlotte, N.C., after Broadwell spent more than a week being hounded by media while staying at her brother's home in Washington. The family friend said she was overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from her neighbors.”
Well isn’t this just special. If Ms. Broadwell’s husband decides to stay with her, I hope she is smart enough to realize how fortunate she is & start living up to her vows & being a respectable mother to her boys.
Broadwell and Kelly typify a breed of woman that flocks to power and cash, whether in business, entertainment, sports or politics. I fully expect them to wind up in Playboy or on a reality show. You don't automatically turn off this kind of ambition.
Is the FBI investigating if the affair started while the general was still a member of the military? Could have great consequences for legal action if it was.
It sounds as though she was given a hero"s welcome or perhaps a prodigal daughter's welcome. People have affairs all the time. I wish that we didn't have to hear about it. Yes, if there were breaches in security, yes, but I don't care about other people's sexual dalliances.
Anyone notice the glaring double standard held by so many of the commenters here? Everyone seems to be pointing the finger at Broadwell but none towards Petraeus? Honestly, I could care less about this affair, and since the FBI has declared there was no security breach, why the hell are we hearing about this? Typical American soap opera, a bunch of perverts who want to look into other people's bedrooms. J Edgar Hoover would be proud.
Petraeus is as much to blame as Kelly. Nuff said.
