Dramatis Personae

Just to keep you up to date, the late is Gen. John Allen, the commanding US general in Afghanistan. He's now being investigated for "inappropriate emails" with Jill Kelley?

As for Kelley that brings us to "inappropriate emails" with Allen, alleged (by Paula Broadwell) advances toward (or from?) Gen. Petraeus, and finally shirtless photos from the freak show FBI agent who was infatuated with Kelley, launched the whole investigation and also seems to have tried to expose it in the final weeks of the election in a desperate attempt to blow up the Benghazi story and make Mitt Romney president.

Good times.
