Paula Broadwell Regrets Affair With David Petraeus

Pamela Broadwell Regrets Affair With David Petraeus

Paula Broadwell regrets her extramarital affair with former CIA chief David Petraeus and is devastated by the fallout from it, according to statements from friends.

Someone close to Broadwell stated on Sunday that the biographer deeply regrets the affair with the former head of the CIA and the damage that it has caused her family and all others involved, reports The Boston Herald.

The biographer stated that she is also trying to repair the damage that has been done and move forward from the scandal. A group of friends and neighbors welcomed Broadwell and her family back into their home in Charlotte, North Carolina after they spent the past week being hounded by media.

Despite being back at home, Broadwell is still being investigated by the FBI for classified documents that we found both on her laptop and in her home. Investigators believe the author gathered the documents while she was researching her biography of Petraeus in Afghanistan.

Broadwell has informed them the documents did not come from Petraeus, and the investigators have added that they are old any may no longer be classified.

The Washington Post notes that the scandal Pamela Broadwell regrets was uncovered after the FBI tracked anonymous emails Broadwell reportedly sent to socialite Jill Kelley. The emails warned Kelley to stay away from both Petraeus and Afghanistan war commander General John Allen.

The FBI has since stopped investigating Petraeus, although they are looking to see if the former CIA director may have behaved inappropriately by using agency resources to further his affair with his biographer. Considering the fallout from their affair (morals notwithstanding), it is understandable that Pamela Broadwell would regret her affair with Davide Petraeus.

    So, is Paula Broadwell, the child victim of a broken home and contentious parents, an amoral overly ambitious egoistic slut; or is she simply a patriotic, soft hearted, innocent, naive and misunderstood soccer mom? Sorry, but I have to vote for the former.

    By her own choice she has lived in a male dominated military environment for almost twenty-five years. This in itself indicates she is something of a feminist crusader. She has described herself as being "driven." She knows what it takes for a woman to be successful in that world… and she is eager to accommodate. She knows how to get what she wants from men, from falsifying educational credentials to having sex with a man old enough to be her father. And she thoroughly enjoys the success she's had doing exactly that.

    Indeed, one has to wonder if David Petraeus was her first extramarital encounter. From reading her biography one gets the impression that to her men are nothing but the means to an end.

    What was Broadwell's motive for getting involved with Petraeus? In blunt terms, it was the adrenalin rush of having sex with a man that powerful. She was on an ego trip and played it to the hilt. As for David Petraeus… he fulfilled the old cliché, "There's no fool like an old fool."

    Point for point and fact for fact… this is a carbon copy of the 2007 case of Navy astronaut Lisa Nowak. Nowak copped a plea deal on the civil charges against her in 2009. But a Navy Board of Inquiry reduced her in rank and booted her out of the service under "Other than Honorable" conditions in 2010, summarily ending a 22-year career, an event followed closely by her husband obtaining a divorce.

    At the very least, the same thing should happen to Paula Broadwell. And to be sure Scott Broadwell owes it to his children to get that woman out of his house. He isn't much of a man and father if he doesn't.
