Paul Wolfowitz weighs in on Petraeus; “Forget the gossip: focus on Benghazi.” [View all]

Former deputy secretary of defense and World Bank president Paul Wolfowitz, now at the American Enterprise Institute, is worried that everyone’s having too much fun with the increasingly bizarre Paula Broadwell/Jill Kelly/David Petraeus soap opera and losing sight of serious matters.

But he forgets that people are still exhausted from the endless, bitter presidential campaign. L’affaire Petraeus is like a peach sorbet, a palate-cleanser, after a very heavy meal.

Wolfowitz, writing on the AEI policy blog, says “Forget the gossip: focus on Benghazi.”

He argues that “fascination with the general’s personal story must not divert attention from the very significant policy failures that helped produce a chaotic security situation in Libya.”
