Another power player brought down.

They really believe the rules don't apply to them or they won't get caught.

I think anything this woman says is highly suspicious at this point.

The CIA says these claims are bullshit.

A spokesperson for the CIA Sunday declined to discuss Broadwell's relationship with Petraeus, whose wife of 37 years, Holly, is the assistant director for service member affairs at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. But the spokesperson did reject Broadwell's allegation that the CIA annex held Libyan militia members as prisoners, telling the Beast:

"The CIA has not had detention authority since January 2009, when Executive Order 13491 was issued. Any suggestion that the Agency is still in the detention business is uninformed and baseless."

re: #2 blueraven

It's kinda frustrating trying to see who has the truth on their side on this. The CIA, terrorists, and a jealous mistress. A triumverate of motives, possible lies and unexpected motivations.

I'm waiting for a WH report on up the road. Until then I am unlikely to be surprised at confirmation of almost any of the scenarios.

Well I just dont understand why she would say what she did. Nobody else said anything of the sort. And if she had some inside info, wouldn't it be stupid to blurt it out like that?
She acts like a woman scorned, or at least one who believes she was. At this point, she holds no credibility for me.

re: #5 blueraven

The article Charles linked article has a big possibility-

(It’s possible Broadwell was confusing details broadcast ealier that day by Fox News correspondent Jennifer Griffen, who’d reported that three of the Libyan attackers were briefly held at the annex—not the consulate—before being turned over to a local militia.)
