'The truth will come out': Father of Petraeus' mistress defends his daughter and claims her affair is part of bigger scandal
But Broadwell’s father said Sunday his daughter is the victim of character assassination and implied the bombshell story is just a smoke screen for something bigger.
“This is about something else entirely, and the truth will come out,” Broadwell’s dad, Paul Krantz, told the Daily News outside his home in Bismarck, N.D. “There is a lot more that is going to come out,” said Krantz, claiming he was not allowed to elaborate.
“You wait and see. There’s a lot more here than meets the eye.” Read more: www.nydailynews.com...[/ ex]
Paula Broadwell's Dad: Petraeus Scandal Bigger Than People Think
Paul Kranz, father of Paula Broadwell, is claiming the David Petraeus scandal is about more than two people having an extramarital affair. Kranz was cagey about the details of the real story, but he did hint that this sordid episode is about something much bigger than appears on the surface. "This is about something else entirely, and the truth will come out," the retired high school basketball coach told a reporter.
What does he mean by this cryptic assertion? What does Paul Kranz know, and why is he allowed to keep silent about the details? Doesn't the public have a right to know? Petraeus shocked America Friday, when he abruptly announced his resignation as head of the CIA. Petraeus was once considered one of the most well-respected men in the military, and a possible contender for the presidency at some point in the future.
It's obvious this resignation isn't about a tryst between the four-star general and his biographer, Paula Broadwell. If every executive in Washington who was cheating on his wife, was forced to resign his post, no one would be left to run the government. Was Petraeus framed by the White House, because he planned on revealing what he knew about the Benghazi attack?
Is it a mere coincidence that the former general left the CIA a week before his testimony in front of Congress about the Libya fiasco? What is your opinion? If Americans learned the entire truth about what happened in Libyan consulate on Sept. 11, they would be outraged at their government.
A military official who identified Kelley said she had received harassing emails from Broadwell, which led the FBI to examine her email account and eventually discover her relationship with Petraeus.
Mrs Kelley, who feared for her safety, contacted the FBI.
During the lengthy discussion, Broadwell's high aspirations are clear as she spoke repeatedly about how she has had the life-long goal of becoming the National Security Adviser. When asked if she had the chance to talk to any previous NSA's, she said that she had not but she considers 'Maddie' and 'Condi' to be great role models, referring to Madeline Albright and Condoleezza Rice by their nicknames.

A well-placed Washington source confirms to Fox News that there were Libyan militiamen being held at the CIA annex in Benghazi and that their presence was being looked at as a possible motive for the staged attack on the consulate and annex that night.
According to multiple intelligence sources who have served in Benghazi, there were more than just Libyan militia members who were held and interrogated by CIA contractors at the CIA annex in the days prior to the attack.
Other prisoners from additional countries in Africa and the Middle East were brought to this location.

Three days after Paula Broadwell entered the center of national controversy, FBI agents Monday evening entered her family’s Dilworth home and appeared to be searching both floors. The four or five agents brought cardboard boxes used for carrying papers and were on both floors of the home. About a dozen members of the local and national media gathered. It wasn’t immediately clear what they were focused on. Read more here: www.newsobserver.com...=rss#storylink=cpy
Cooper said Cantor's office did not notify anyone else because, "at the time, it was one person making the allegation which, while serious, was completely unsubstantiated. He (Cantor) didn't know this person. He did the only thing he thought appropriate and that he thought was responsible. Two weeks ago, you don't want to start spreading something you can't confirm."
