Here is the whole thing (h/t Weasel Zippers):
“I was embedded with Gen. Petraeus in Afghanistan, and it was a little confusing to some of the folks there because I am also a military reservist with a top secret FBI clearance and then some,” Broadwell told an audience at an Aspen Institute event in October.
“I had access to everything, it was my experience not to leak it, not to violate my mentor, if you will,” she said. “He was a very close mentor.”
I realize that this is 20-20 hindsight, which allows one to make connections that are impossible to make a priori, but it sure is funny.
What was that Broadwell broad thinking?
For that matter, what was the General thinking?
