So I guess

When many folks figured that Patraeus was getting serviced by a fawning press corps it also happened to be l-i-t-e-r-a-l-l-y true.

So what you will about Robert Caro, he never slept with LBJ.

Lends a whole new meaning to the book title, too.

It's equally true that Petraeus was only metaphorically in bed with Max Boot and Robert Kagan when he gave them a tour of Afghanistan so they could write about how wonderfully things were going there.

Now that he's been found to be literally fucking his hagiographer, maybe people will take a bit more notice of his status as the most politically- and PR-conscious general since MacArthur.
