FAVORABLE ACTION" CAN BE TAKEN IN HER CASE

PAULA BROADWELLOne public affairs officer trick we learned long ago was to get out in front of any bad news or try and immediately blunt it when it does appear. A case in point is the Pentagon leak to CNN that Paula Broadwell won't be pinning on silver oak leaves anytime soon.

The one-time mistress to retired GEN David Petraeus isn't going to be a light colonel after all, despite her name being on the promotion list for 0-5 last August.

West Point grad Broadwell, who wrote a fawning book about her ex-boyfriend and was allegedly caught by investigators with classified information in her home - a "major" screw-up, pardon the pun - looks like she might just get some sort of punishment for her errors after all.

We had written about her and the teflon-coated general and resigned CIA director - see item in related stories box below about Marine Gen. John Allen's sudden request for retirement - just days ago. We cited that old axiom of DIFFERENT SPANKS FOR DIFFERENT RANKS as applying to this case.

"ANONYMOUS SOURCE" AT PENTAGON
LEAKS BROADWELL NEWS TO CNN

It didn't take long for the damage-control people in the Pentagon to get on the job.

Broadwell is an Army Reserve officer, and according to regulations, she cannot be promoted to a higher grade, or any "favorable action" taken on her case, for that matter, until any ongoing investigation is completed and she cleared of any wrongdoing.

Since the forty-something babe's security clearance remains suspended, we think the odds on her getting promoted to light colonel now are next to none.

At least we at MilitaryCorruption.com, and a vast majority of Army rank-and-file, hope so.
