Ex-Pentagon Janitor Writes Tell-All Book Roasting Leon Panetta

WASHINGTON, D.C. — A former Pentagon janitorial supervisor has become the latest D.C. insider to criticize his former boss with the release of an explosive tell-all book highlighting a Defense Department he characterized as having a lack of leadership and inability to function in a high-stakes foreign policy environment, Duffel Blog has learned.

The book “Worthy Spills” by Jesus Lopez is set to be released next week, detailing former Defense Secretary Leon Panetta’s eating habits, his secretary’s domestic snacking issue, and even includes a highly-critical anecdote claiming that Panetta spilled coffee all over the floor during the mission to eliminate Osama bin Laden, and he didn’t even put down so much as a napkin to mop some of it up.


Critics have already slammed Lopez for what many believe is a blatant attempt to make money off his political patron as soon as the threat of being fired was removed. However, supporters have used the same argument, claiming that Lopez’s privileged position in Panetta’s inner circle prevented him from telling the truth during his time at the Pentagon.

Republicans have seized on the book’s claims as another example of failure within the Obama Administration, and many Democrats have expressed fears the book would hurt their chances during the mid-term congressional elections.White House and Pentagon higher-ups have also been quick to refute Lopez’s claims, though not addressing the book directly.

But Dan Snyder, Redskins owner, countered with the above scene from his box, which turns out to have an interesting subplot. Ben Shelly is actually the soon-to-be former president of the Navajo Nation, as he was beaten badly in a recent election, as Deadspin discovered.
