You should all be aware of the resignation of General David Petraeus over his affair with Paula Broadwell by now. And sure, people are worried about Benghazi and national security, as they should be. But other reputable news services and blogs are covering that; we are more interested in what you readers out there think about who is better looking – Paula Broadwell or the “other” woman involved in this fiasco – Jill Kelley from Tampa, Florida. So here are some photos of Mrs. Broadwell and Mrs. Kelley for comparison:
Paula Broadwell vs Jill Kelley
Business Insider breaks the data down for us into a nice Cliffs Notes version. Among the fun stuff:
- A federal agent who was involved in the investigation became obsessed with Jill Kelley, sending shirtless photos of himself to her. He was, of course, removed from the case.
- Apparently, Jill Kelley functions as an unpaid “social liaison” between the public and MacDill Air Force Base. This basically means she gets to hang out with top generals and hold huge parties, some at her extravagant, colonial-style home. At one of these parties, General Petraeus showed up in a 28-car motorcade.
- The 20-30,000 pages of emails that Gen. John R. Allen supposedly sent to Jill Kelley is probably overblown. It was said that some of the emails are “inappropriate,” but nobody knows what that means. A senior official strongly maintains that there was no inappropriate relationship between Allen and Kelley.

The Washington Post also has an interesting article about Tampa’s military social scene. Note that MacDill Air Force Base has 15,000 active-duty military personnel and 3,000 civilian employees. It also is home to U.S. Central Command, U.S. Special Operations Command, and the 6th Air Mobility Wing.
It’s interesting that Jill Kelley’s twin sis – Natalie Khawam – owns her own law firm that exclusively represents whistleblowers! (as seen in a google cache of her profile). It’s also interesting that Gen. Petraeus and Gen. Allen intervened in a custody battle involving Natalie’s child. After she got into an argument with her husband at the time, she took their son and ran away to Florida. A judge denied her custody, being worried about her mental stability. (source)
Paula Broadwell’s biography All In: The Education of General David Petraeus, was published earlier this year.
Latest event: 10 FBI agents just recently searched her Charlotte, N.C. home and made off with some items, including a computer. It was said that some classified documents were found on her computer but Gen. Petraeus denied giving them to her. The investigation continues.
