    TWO GENERALS, FOUR WOMEN & THE EYE OF THE FBI
    ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    NATIONAL JOURNAL
    ANALYSIS

    Two Generals, Two Women and the FBI

    Michael Hirsh

    "They were said to be generals cut from the same cloth, David Petraeus and John Allen: whip-smart, adaptable, erudite and above reproach. Indeed Allen was Petraeus’s hand-picked successor in Afghanistan, having served as deputy commander at Centcom in Tampa, Fla., first under Petraeus, then under Marine Gen. James Mattis. Petraeus and Allen, the soldier and the Marine, represented, in other words, the very best that the U.S. military has to offer.


    And yet, in less than a week, the careers of two very different men may be ruined as a result of alleged inappropriate behavior with women.

    It was scandalous enough when Petraeus stepped down as CIA director after an FBI investigation uncovered his extramarital affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell. The latest hairpin plot twist came early Tuesday when the Defense Department abruptly announced that the nomination of Allen, the outgoing commander in Afghanistan, to be commander of NATO forces was “on hold” pending an investigation by the FBI and the Pentagon inspector general related to his relationship with Jill Kelley – the woman who kicked off the FBI probe by reporting threatening emails she had received from Broadwell, and who has denied having any relationship with Petraeus beyond family friend.

    A senior U.S. defense official told National Journal on Tuesday that investigators are now looking into “potentially inappropriate communications” between Allen and Kelley, 37, a doctor’s wife who worked at Centcom in Florida. According to The Washington Post, in the course of the Petraeus-Broadwell probe, the FBI uncovered between 20,000 and 30,000 documents — most of them e-mails —shared between Kelley and Allen.

    =========================================================


    A tail of two Generals,
    hand in hand,
    so bravely and manly
    sharing defeat together in Iraq
    and witnessing it in Afghanistan---
    and having shared it abroad are now sharing it here,
    but with different women, and in addition to their wives.

    Why are such Generals so unsuccessful
    when there are all those very nice things to be said about and for them,
    such as President Barack Obama has said about Petraeus---who might not betray us---but who, so sturdily, one assumes, betrayed his wife.

    Well, while holding hands with Petraeus,
    Allen is accused of betraying us
    by sharing 20,000 to 30,000 documents, most of them e mails,
    with Kelley---who may or may not be as Irish as John Kerry.

    And who knows what Petraeus shared with "that other woman",
    for the audit's not completed yet

    Anyway, as you are sure to know,
    what we are referring to
    is "Making Love, not War."

    And, whatever did happen, as we all know,
    men will be men, and some women will,
    if the thing is,
    in military parlance,
    pressed hard enough,
    engage in short courses,
    and if our two handsome, dashing,
    "decorated to near the navel" Generals
    had been winning instead of losing wars
    we might be decorating them even more and more and more---


    but alas---
    that time has passed,
    and now we must castrate---
    I mean castigate them,
    or just let them run loose;
    Jersey bulls that they are.
