The following bit from the Guardian article caught my eye:
Retired admiral Bruce Loveless, 53, and the others have been accused of accepting the services of sex workers and other bribes from Leonard Francis (aka Fat Leonard) in exchange for classified information that helped his company, Glenn Defence Marine Asia.
Seriously? An Admiral called Loveless has girls procured for him by a pimp called Fat Leonard. If you saw it in a series on TV you wouldn't believe it...
