    on the letters. Wouldn't that be completely inappropriate? I'm a lawyer in a private company and we can't use company letterhead for private purposes. How can a general and the head of the friggin CIA use their official positions in a child custody case? Plus, they seem to have totally been on the wrong side. These guys have seriously bad judgment. Where most people work, they would get fired just for these letters, never mind the rest of the stuff.

      It's not the's all the really terrible judgments that go along with it.

      What I don't get is, what did Jill Kelley have on Petraeus - assuming he's telling the truth about their relationship being only social.  Was he showing off for her by doing her a favor?  Seems mighty risky.  And like you said, the generals were clearly on the wrong side of this case...if they'd taken the time - or had one of their aides take the time - to look into the case, they would've know this.

      It's just strange and sleazy.
