Broadwell told TV interviewer in February 2012, “I’m not in love with David Petraeus.”
At ten minutes into this interview about her book, given when she was three months into her affair with Petraeus (which according to reports began in November 2011), Paula Broadwell says:
“But when I realised the opportunity I had to present this portrait of strategic leadership—you know it’s not a hagiography, I’m not in love with David Petraeus, but I think he does present a terrific role model for young people, for executives, for men and women.”
Notice how she rushes over and almost swallows the words, “I’m not in love with David Petraeus,” as though she realized, even as she was speaking the words, that she was protesting too much and inadvertently giving away the truth.
Notice also how the overexcited and evidently homosexual interviewer, Arthur Kade, repeatedly describes Petraeus as a “freaking rock star.” Yes, that’s the way their America (by “them” I mean the people who have now taken over the country) likes to think about our (or rather their) political and military leaders. Finally, note that Broadwell does not correct Kade and tell him that that it’s inappropriate to think of a general as a rock star and that her book does not treat him as one.
Kidist Paulos Asrat writes:
I agree that Broadwell doth protest too much, although a better description would be that she doth protest too fast. She puts in the unnecessary “I am not in love with Petraeus” (why bring it up if it is not true as she says?) so fast and jumbled that even the savvy interviewer doesn’t catch it.
