    It has all the makings of a thriller spy adventure. Where/who's the spy. Women, sex, access, generals, admirals, provileged info, security leaks, and Mid East wars. Wowser!

    Oh it gets better. Jill Kelly is calling 911 for protection and Paula Broadwell's driver's license was found in park in DC... on a jogging tril.

    Jill Kelley requested "diplomatic protection" in 911 call

    All relieved of duties, quit or under fire in the past few weeks. All high ranking. Can anyone add to the list? Sounds unprecedented to me.


    *Gen. John R. Allen, the top American and NATO commander in Afghanistan

    *General Patraeus-CIA Director

    *Rear Admiral Charles Gaouette-Command of Carrier Strike Group 3

    *General Carter Ham- Commander AFRICOM

    Carter Ham is working on the Mali situation..

    Rear Admiral Gaouette has rumors flying about everything from sexual misconduct to mutiny.

    Patraeus is in hotwater because of his affair.. and you have to wonder about any general who can send 20-30 thousand personal emails in 2 years.
