Though their inclusion in my upcoming book — the working title of which is THE CLAPPER MEMO — has nothing to do with the recent sex and email scandals that have generated so many headlines during the past two weeks, all three men in the photo above play important roles in my upcoming book. They are: Gen. John Allen, International Security Assistance Force commander; Gen. David Petraeus, recently-resigned CIA director; and Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta.

Stay tuned as I’m working as quickly as I can to finish THE CLAPPER MEMO. I’ll keep you updated.
