CENTCOM’s socialite shenanigans make me wonder about SOCOM investigation

CENTCOM’s socialite shenanigans make me wonder about SOCOM investigation

Long after the ashes of the scandal have grown cold, the government turned over to the Washington Post some of Jill Kelley’s e-mails to the top brass at Central Command.

Which reminded me of a thought I had as I read James Risen’s recent book, which though not particularly well written has a lot of good stuff in it. At one point, he mentions some contracting scandals at SOCOM that were being investigated. SOCOM, of course, is co-located with CENTCOM at MacDill Air Force Base. This made me wonder if the FBI, probing those, stumbled across General Petraeus’ relationship with Paula Broadwell.
