Lebanese-American Woman linked to David Petraeus case

I wish we’d see more mentions of Lebanese and Lebanon in positive events, not scandalous, violent and illegal incidents.

It was a married Florida woman who blew the lid off the scandalous affair that led retired Gen. David Petraeus to resign as CIA chief when she told the FBI of allegedly threatening e-mails she’d received from his lover, sources said yesterday.

Jill Kelley, 37, of Tampa — a “social liaison” to the powerful Joint Special Operations Command — reported the jealous messages from Petraeus biographer Paula Broadwell, who is accused of sleeping with the married four-star general, to the FBI, sources said. The married Broadwell, 40, told Kelley to “back off,” “stay away from my guy,” and warned, “I know what you did,” sources have told The Post.

Kelley and her twin sister, Natalie, are the youngest of four kids of Lebanese immigrants, Marcelle and John Khawam. [Link]

We have to wait and see now whether Jill was also Petraeus’ lover and not just a friend he sees very often.

      Cynthia,
      It’s not as simple as that. So far she’s the innocent one but they found some other flirtatious emails between her and another general.

      Am posting about it in a bit. I do hope she’s innocent.

    Another tenuous link to Lebanon through a woman who probably can’t even place Beirut on a map?

    Because her parents are Lebanese emigrants?

    Who cares? Innocent or not, who cares?

    What a wonderful world it would be if Americans got as upset about their foreign policy as they do about sex.
