Dulles CIA Chief Had 'Hundreds' of Affairs

Yes, Allen Dulles, back in the day--that is, the 1950s--was a regular Wilt Chamberlain compared to David Petraeus, as new NYT piece details: "Mr. Petraeus resigned after admitting to a single affair; Allen Dulles had, as his sister, Eleanor, wrote later, 'at least a hundred.'”  And it was no secret in D.C.  He was "serial adulterer" and "skilled seducer."   Conquests apparently included everyone from Clare Booth Luce to Queen Frederika.  Of the latter:
She came to Washington, discussed “spiritual values” with President Dwight D. Eisenhower in the Oval Office and then visited Dulles at C.I.A. headquarters.
They had been alone in his office for nearly an hour when an aide knocked. Hearing no response, he entered. He found the office empty, but heard noises from the adjoining dressing room. Later Dulles and the queen emerged.
