General David Petraeus has admitted to an extramarital affair with Paula Broadwell, an Army reservist who travelled with General Petraeus in Afghanistan when she was writing a book about the general. An FBI investigation had been launched after Mrs Broadwell was suspected of having gained access to the e-mail account of General Petraeus who had by then become Director of the CIA.
General John Allen, the commander of US and NATO troops in Afghanistan, has been caught up in the scandal. The FBI are looking into 20,000 to 30,000 pages of “inappropriate e-mails” between him and Jill Kelley.
Now it will become confusing because this Jill Kelley also seemed to have had quite a close relationship with General Petraeus. And then these ladies seemed to have become jealous of each other and sent harassing e-mails, as women tend to do, which sparked the FBI investigation.
No wonder we are not making any progress in Afghanistan if even the top generals spend all day e-mailing and flirting with the ladies.
And then there are still people who believe that gays in the military would be the real problem. Wake up, guys! It’s the straight guys who have their mind far off the battlefield. Meanwhile, gay soldiers are doing their job. More gays, better national security!
