CNN is reporting that Paula Broadwell, General David Petraeus’ biographer, has been removed the LTC promotion list. I guess she was a Major in the Reserves, and, you know, the high standards that the Army expects from their officers these days, and Broadwell has been found lacking, I guess. So I guess that pretty much ends any career that she’d been looking hoping to complete.
She should have waited until she was a full bird colonel and a unit commander before she began engaging in nefarious activities, like the men do.
Since the Petraeus scandal broke, Broadwell has been under investigation by the Army for having classified information in her home without permission. She was initially on the list of approved promotions back on August 28, 2012. But under Army regulations “if new information comes to light” within six months of a promotion date it could make the person ineligible. Broadwell was deemed ineligible for promotion because she is under investigation for a matter that could result in her being punished by the Army, the official said. The promotion is revoked until the matter is resolved, the official said. If cleared, she would be eligible again.
