Petraeus Reportedly Was Responsible for Making Jill Kelley the Honorary South Korean Consul

» by in: Politics-US

So not only was Petraeus hanging around with someone that was arguably a foreign government agent with a shady background, but now the report below says that he is the one that got Jill Kelley the position in the first place:

A New York businessman who discussed a multi-billion-dollar Korean business deal with Jill Kelley said the Tampa woman at the center of the Petraeus scandal told him Gen. Petraeus had arranged for her to become an honorary consul for South Korea and promote free trade, and then asked him for $80 million to complete the deal.

“Ms. Kelley made it clear to me that General Petraeus put her in this position, and that’s why she was able to have access to such senior levels [of the Korean government],” said Adam Victor, president and CEO of TransGas Development Systems, “that they were essentially doing a favor for General Petraeus, and that she had access solely because of her relationship with General Petraeus.”

Victor, who met Kelley at the Republican National Convention in Tampa in August, said he was disappointed in Gen. Petraeus for helping Kelley become an honorary consul. “Frankly, I blame Gen. Petraeus for this as a lapse of judgment,” he said. “The general should have known better.” [ABC News]

You can read the rest at the link, but the businessman terminated his relationship from Kelley when she asked for $80 million for being the broker for the deal.  He thought that was ridiculous and questions Petraeus’ judgment for getting Kelley the gig as Honorary South Korean Consul in Tampa.

    To get a position, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know, or who you sleep with.

    Does anyone really believe a person sleeps around for the very first time at age sixty after four decades of marriage?

    There has never been a connection between Petraeus and Korea. This is an instance of this woman running her mouth.

    And who knows where that mouth has been?

    He should have just given her one of those commander’s coins. It would have been just as meaningful and allowed her to make far less trouble.

    It’s not who you know, it’s who you blow? But don’t worry, boys. Gay rights are here and you’ll get your chances, too.

    This New York businessman’s story sounds really fishy to me. I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised if he made much of it up – knowing that virtually anything related to Jill Kelley will make big news right now.

    If Petreaus did not hook her up with the position I wonder who did? Also just because Petreaus does not have a history of service in Korea does not mean he has no connections. For example maybe he made connections through the Zaytun unit that operated in his AO when he was the 101st Div commander. He could have also made connections through CENTCOM and Afghan command time due to the Korean unit serving in Afghanistan.

    Someone should also ask the Korean government what made her qualified to represent their government in Tampa?

    There seems to have been many connections made with her, through her and in her.

    The Gaza strip is spiraling out of control, but don’t worry our best Generals are on it, after they finish f****** the Kardashians.

    Jill Kelley is a glorified gypsy grifter who is part Kardashian, part Palin, and part Snooky. She’s flirting with everyone but General Motors and is the reason why Colonel Sanders is always licking his fingers.

    Then she got this FBI guy to read 100′s of emails(no wonder we’re losing the Afghan war) so J. Edgar Hoover’s ghost can j***-off in he44.

    Tampa, Florida calls Jill Kelley a Socialite but what does she do, go eat the fillet at Applebee’s? No, she should be known as the hot married cougar named P**** Galore.

    It’s just too bad our CIA Director couldn’t keep a secret, one thing after another led to his c***.

    “hook her up with the position” hook? pun intended? :lol:

    Wouldn’t it be ironic if the vast majority of 20,000 pages of messages between herself and Allen were just something innocuous like her periodic social rosters and advertisements sent immediately into his trash box?

    Lessons learned….Nutters gonna nut. Distance thyself.

    Good question.

    I truly hope that the general didn’t actually give her this position. Holy shit is she an idiot…

    Adultery is against the UCMJ, that is why Gen. P. never did it while on active duty.

    And now the South Korean government takes away her honorary title. Shucks, she just can’t catch a break. :roll:
