Lt. Colonel Broadwell has not been referred to by her reserve Army rank for some reason. It is not an oversight. There has to be a reason.
Broadwell was Deputy Director of the Jebsen Center for Counter-Terrorism Studies at The Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts University. She also worked with the FBI Joint Terrorism Task Force.
The Jebsen Center came to Tufts as a result of a chance early-morning encounter in March 2005 at Boston's Logan Airport between Howard and his friend Richard Shultz, a professor of international politics at Fletcher who is now an advisor to the Center. Jan Henrik Jebsen, a Norwegian businessman and philanthropist, wanted to fund a study of counter-terrorism and wanted Howard to direct it. Jebsen provided a three-year, $1.5 million grant to launch the Center that fall.
"Mr. Jan Henrik Jebsen is the founder and Chairman of the Gamma Applied Visions Group, a Swiss holding company based on the outskirts of Geneva. Formed in 2002, shortly after the attacks of September 11 2001, Gamma Applied Visions Group has experienced rapid growth and now owns and operates a number of independent companies within the defense & security, anti-terrorism, medical devices, civil protection, marketing/communication and energy sectors.

Irve Lewis "Scooter" Libby (born August 22, 1950) is a former adviser to Vice President Dick Cheney. Libby was later disbarred after being convicted of a felony.
In March 2010, when Petraeus was still head of the US Central Command, he gave testimony to the Senate Armed Services Committee which included this observation about one of the “challenges to security and stability” faced by the United States:
"The enduring hostilities between Israel and some of its neighbors present distinct challenges to our ability to advance our interests in the AOR [Area of Operations]. Israeli-Palestinian tensions often flare into violence and large-scale armed confrontations. The conflict foments anti-American sentiment, due to a perception of U.S. favoritism for Israel."
Abe Foxman, National Director of the Anti-Defamation League, one of the leading American Zionist lobby groups, was so alarmed he issued a statement condemning Petraeus’ testimony, asserting in part of it:
Ms. Kelley, a volunteer who organizes social events for military personnel in the Tampa area, complained in May about the emails to a friend who is an FBI agent. That agent referred it to a cyber crimes unit, which opened an investigation
The first week of June 2012, Senator Feinstein spoke with anger about the "avalanche of leaks" occurring in relation to U.S. intelligence affairs.
Together with other heads of Congressional oversight, Senator Feinstein vowed to stop leaks. One week later she co-sponsored, with Senator Saxy Chambliss, S. 3314: A bill to specifically authorize certain funds for an intelligence or intelligence-related activity and for other purposes. It is not known if this bill is related to the leak-stopping exercise
Very interesting like a cliche spy novel.
Kerry and Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) met Khawam at social events and fund-raisers she and her son attended with her boyfriend — Providence, RI, lawyer, lobbyist and Democratic fund-raiser Gerald Harrington, the pols’ spokesmen said. Whitehouse even penned a letter to Harrington saying he was “excited to hear that you and John may be coming to the Family Clambake.”Harrington, meanwhile, is among many Khawam acquaintances who lent her large sums of money. Her federal bankruptcy filing last April lists $3.6 million in liabilities against just less than $350,000 in assets — including $300,000 borrowed from Harrington, who did not return a request for comment.
After his army service, Netanyahu returned to the United States in late 1972 to study architecture at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He returned to Israel in October of 1973 to serve in the Yom Kippur War for a 40 day period. While there, he fought in special forces raids along the Suez Canal, as well as leading a commando team deep into Syrian territory. He then returned to the United States and eventually completed an S.B. degree in architecture in 1975 and earned an S.M. degree from the MIT Sloan School of Management in 1977. Concurrently, he studied political science at Harvard University. At that time he changed his name to Benjamin Ben Nitai (Nitai, a reference to both Mount Nitai and to the eponymous Jewish sage Nittai of Arbela, was a pen name often used by his father for articles). Years later, in an interview with the media, Netanyahu clarified that he decided to do so to make it easier for Americans to pronounce his name. This fact has been used by his political rivals to accuse him indirectly of a lack of Israeli national identity and loyalty.
He attended Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School, and received both a law degree and a Master of Business Administration degree in 1975.
That shared experience decades ago led to a warm friendship, little known to outsiders, that is now rich with political intrigue. Mr. Netanyahu, the prime minister of Israel, is making the case for military action against Iran as Mr. Romney, the likely Republican presidential nominee, is attacking the Obama administration for not supporting Mr. Netanyahu more robustly.
The Romneys' first son, Taggart, was born in 1970 while they were undergraduates at BYU and living in a basement apartment. Ann subsequently gave birth to Matthew (1971) and Joshua (1975). Benjamin (1978) and Craig (1981) would arrive later, after Romney began his career.
