What’s missing from the “Love Pentagon” story?

While he was director of the CIA, Petraeus wrote a letter supporting the child-custody fight of the “psychologically unstable” twin sister of his close friend Jill Kelley — whose bombshell claims of being threatened by his lover led to the top spy’s resignation last week, sources told The Post.
The four-star general’s letter to the court — written in the past two months — supported a motion to overturn a ruling made nearly a year earlier by a judge who resoundingly denied custody to Kelley’s sister, Natalie Khawam, because of serious reservations about her honesty and mental stability, court records show.
The letter was filed in DC Superior Court, where the father of Khawam’s 4-year-old son filed for divorce three years ago, two sources said. The status of the divorce was not immediately known.
“Written in the past two months”? Shouldn’t Petraeus have been a little more focused on custody of the CIA annex in Benghazi during this time? I can’t imagine what the judge in the case must have thought when he received a letter from the Director of Central Intelligence attesting to the honesty of the woman who prompted reservations about honesty and mental stability, but it probably wasn’t terribly complimentary.
