The unfolding Petraeus scandal follows a familiar "boy meets girl" storyline. But when the boy is the (married) CIA director, the girl is his (married) biographer, and there's another girl and a few other boys involved in the dalliance, this Shakespearean romantic tragedy becomes an entirely different animal:

Take a look at the lowlights, in the mashup above.
