    faux hero Petraeus.

    starting with,
    himself
    his lover
    his close friend, the grifter
    the energy developer she met at the RNC
    the FBI agent who was convinced of a cover up

    lotta' loose lips on Petraeus ship.

      "The fish stinks from the head."

      We need to stop this mindless national hero worship of the military, especially the top brass.
      You can honor their service, but be realistic.

      They're just people like everyone else, subject to greed, lust,  jealousy, cronyism and dishonesty.
      Just like the private sector, most people are ok, but there will always be a certain percentage of people that can't be trusted.
      That's Human Nature 101.

      War has always been a business.
      Big Money and power will always attract greedheads, b.s. artists, sociopaths and self promoters, like honey attracts bees.
