FBI raids Paula Broadwell’s home for evidence

On Monday night at least 4 FBI agents raided the Charlotte NC  home of General Petraeus’ mistress, Paula Broadwell.   Some reports say a dozen agents entered the home to search for possible classified information.  The family was not in the home when the agents entered.  More here and here and here.

  1. It’s entirely psoisble to do it. You could, for example allocate every Australian a certain number of free CO2 emissions rights each month and allow them to purchase more at auction on some e-bay-like venue or perhaps at supermarket checkouts. Every head of household or single adult of at least 18 would get a smart card like those FlyBuys cards reflecting their credits. (Visitors to Australia would get no such credits and have to register for a smart card and buy their credits from an exchange.) Each product you bought would have a CO2 cost which you could find out by using a reader on the barcode or perhaps via a mobile phone app. You could always swipe your own card to see how much you had left in any given month.The money raised would be handed back to the carriers of cards in the form of tax threshhold adjustments, cash or aaset and means-tested benefits in kind.The tricky part would be getting the modelling right at the back end how CO2-intensive is each service or good you buy?Of course, such a system would underpin renewable energy since people would use fewer permits to purchase the energy. People with solar panels would not be using as much energy from the grid so they would have a loophole.

  2. November 26 – Update: Paula Broadwell has now retained both an Attorney and a Public Relations firm in Washington DC. So far, she is the only member in the entire cast of characters in the David Petraeus Sex Scandal to do so. Her need for an Attorney is obvious .. she’s facing some potentially very serious charges, both military and civilian. But a PR expert? It is reported she has hopes of reviving her career. And just what career might that be? … Consultant to Terrorists, Fiction Writer, Con Man, or Escort (Outcall Only). The more we learn about her, the less qualified she appears to be for any other line of work. Someone really needs to evaluate the curriculum for graduation from West Point.

    Thus far, the only characters in the play to make public statements are Petraeus and Natalie Khawam, the sister of Jill Kelley. There has been nothing from either Paula or her husband Scott or their “hired mouth.” And they are conspicuous by their absence. Speculating … it may be because there’s just not a lot she can say in the way of defending herself; that she knows she’s been caught and to deny it only invites public condemnation. Thus, her silence is an admission of guilt.

    At the risk of sounding sexist, Scott Broadwell was interviewed some time back; and he stated that in order to draw the two of them closer together in their marriage, that he literally turned wife Paula loose to pursue whatever professional goals she had. I am reminded of an old adage usually found carved on wooden wall-hangers in gift and craft shops, to wit …

    “If you love something, turn it loose.
    If it comes back to you it’s yours.
    If it doesn’t, it never was.”

    Uh … Scott, old man, it’s pretty obvious now … she was never yours; and you have never been more than a means to an end. Indeed, she could never truly commit to any one man. Her lifelong drive to quell an insatiable ambition assures that. You really need to re-define the entire nature of your association with Paula Kranz (Broadwell). She has physically demonstrated by her own behavior that you are the only person in your household who is married. Do you really want your sons to be raised by a person who is so totally amoral?

    Scott, how do you deal with knowing that you, yourself, created the situation where you would stay at home and play Mr. Mom while your wife was halfway around the world having the time of her life … banging a Four-Star General? Do you feel stupid? Do you feel like you’ve been played like the same cheap violin as David Petraeus? Have you realized that marrying her was the biggest mistake you ever made … and that it’s a mistake you can rectify? That woman living in your house that you thought was your wife already has a Lawyer … it’s time you got your own.
