Response to TorchTheWitch (Reply #25)

85. The focus on Kelley and her sister is all down to Allen's fitness for command.

It's not 'about' them--it's about his shitty judgment in flirting and IMing like a teen ager with the 'socialite,' while he was supposed to be conducting a war. It's about HIS fitness for increased responsibility.

The focus of the investigators is ALLEN, not Kelley. The media may be stupid, but that's the media. They are stupid. Why does anyone find this surprising? Remember? Hello! They tried to tell us that a landslide was a horse race.

I don't think "DU" is "barking and following along." There's nothing wrong with commenting on reported stories--it doesn't mean people have bought the premise (or the paper). There are two tracks here, the Petraeus track and the Allen track; they intersect because of jealous pique, and the media is focusing on that because it's EASY, but the investigators have moved beyond that and I think, save a bit of snarking amusement, most people with half a brain see that.
