The British word of the year according to the Oxford English Dictionary is omnishambles, defined as a situation characterized by a string of blunders and miscalculations. The detail and intrigue behind the blunders and miscalculations by people in high places thinking organically is mapped out in today’s Wall Street Journal. So many double entendres come to my mind, beginning right off the bat with the title of Paula Broadwell’s biography of General David Petraeus.
Seems like Jill Kelly, the woman who received Ms. Broadwell’s threatening emails, may have had dalliances with the FBI agent she asked to investigate Ms. Broadwell. Appears to be a deep and dark trail of the world’s oldest disputes at hand here, playing out to a rather grand stage on a rather grand scale. To complicate matters, turns out General Petraeus may have had a John working for him. It’s all quite omnishambled.
