Paula Broadwell on why she's been silent since Petraeus affair

– until now

Paula Broadwell is speaking out in her first national television interview since we learned of her affair with former CIA director and retired General David Petraeus. The former military intelligence officer told “CBS This Morning” co-host Norah O’Donnell that she has no ill will against Petraeus, but just wants to move on with her life and career.

“I’ve been strongly advised to not talk to the press, and I understand that. Sometimes it’s better to remain silent. I’ve had that philosophy for the last five years,” Broadwell said. “But I – I’ve reached a point where I feel like, ‘You know what? I need to fight back for my life.’”

“You want to move on,” O’Donnell said.

“It’s time to move on,” Broadwell said.


It actually is not fair as the rules were not applied equally in this case.

Umm ... I don't get how talking to the press helps you "move on". Is it possible to "move on" without blabbing to the entire country? :-k
