As the David Petraeus scandal unfolds we are all trying to get a portrait of his paramour, Paula Braodwell, and her motivations for jeopardizing both of their careers. What was so precious to her that she felt it necessary to intimidate Jill Kelley through emails and ultimately be the loose thread that unraveled the affair, and the lives of David Petraeus, Jill Kelley and General John Allen.
A review of her Twitter timeline reveals an ambitious woman seeking power, prestige and notoriety. They also show her passion for the troops, promoting women in leadership roles and her own emerging celebrity.

Pat's comments showcase just how hollow values are with the “values voters” crew. Forget the sanctity of marriage crap! He’s a man! Men get lonely when they’re off in foreign lands! They just need an orifice to release the stress – any orifice will do – and here’s a “good-lookin’ lady” who’s “throwing herself” at him, and she ain’t his wife. No harm, no foul.

The David Petraeus narrative is coming out in dribs and drabs, all the better to make things look worse than they are and give the story long, long gams. Petrausgate is as strange, or stranger, than any other Washington "boy meets girl ... boy beds girl ... boy resigns ... girl hides in an undisclosed location" story. Surprisingly, everyone is still working out the details of a story with more plot twists than the Da Vinci Code. They are just beginning to get to the rights and wrongs of the matter and as we all know, that's when the sh*t will really hits the fan. Although I usually follow the screw and let screw position, there are some differences between Petraeus and your average cad. For one, he's the leader of America's spy apparatus.The David Petraeus narrative is coming out in dribs and drabs, all the better to make... more

US President Barack Obama has nominated Gen David Petraeus, the US head of international forces in Afghanistan, as the new CIA director and has named the agency's chief as head of the Pentagon.
Mr Obama named the current CIA director, Leon Panetta, as the next defence secretary when Robert Gates retires in late June.
"Leon appreciates the struggles of American troops," the president said.
Gen Petraeus's job will be filled by Marine Corps Lt Gen John Allen.
Announcing the most sweeping shake-up of top security officials since he took office, Mr Obama also named Ryan Crocker as the next US ambassador to Afghanistan.
"These are the leaders that I've chosen to help guide us through the difficult days ahead," Mr Obama said with Mr Gates, Mr Panetta, Gen Petraeus and other officials standing next to him at the White House.
'Unity of effort'
Mr Obama said that after four years in uniform, Gen Petraeus would retire from the US army and step into his new role at the CIA in September, pending Senate confirmation of the new positions.

I will look to them and my entire national security team for their counsel, continuity and unity of effort that this moment in history demand”
US President Barack Obama
The announcement comes less than a year after Gen Petraeus took over responsibility for leading Nato forces in Afghanistan from Gen Stanley McChrystal.
"I will look to them and my entire national security team for their counsel, continuity and unity of effort that this moment in history demands," Mr Obama said of his newly nominated staff.
Mr Obama said Mr Gates, who was first appointed as defence secretary by George W Bush in 2006, had "more than earned the right to return to private life".
Gen Petraeus will be replaced in Afghanistan by Lt Gen Allen, currently deputy head of US Central Command - the command unit covering central Asia and the Middle East.
Lt Gen Allen and Mr Crocker will not fill their new roles immediately but will step into the positions over the summer.
Mr Panetta, a 72-year-old Democrat from California, served as chief of staff to President Bill Clinton between 1994 and 1997 and took over at the CIA in February 2009.
Prior to those positions, he served as director of Mr Clinton's Office of Management and Budget.
Meanwhile, Afghanistan's spring fighting season is ramping up, testing Nato and Afghan national army territorial gains.
In July, the US is expected to begin what US President Barack Obama has called a "significant" withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, turning over security duties to Afghan military forces.
As of February, more than 1.4m people were serving in the US armed forces.US President Barack Obama has nominated Gen David Petraeus, the US head of... more
