  •  That's a nice legend, but P4 was never a hero (1+ / 0-)

    He just had good enough media savvy to create a persona.

    A CIA director should keep a low profile, not have a biography published a few months after his appointment.  As for Paula Broadwell, as someone said yesterday "she was no Arthur M. Schlesinger." She wasn't even a published writer. In the end, she might end up being a hero, for bringing down a fake-hero-former-General who went from pushing an attack on Iran to promoting drone warfare.
