CIA Director David Petraeus resigned Friday, citing an extramarital affair and "extremely poor judgement."
In a letter released to the CIA work force on Friday afternoon, Petraeus disclosed the affair, and wrote: "Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours."
President Obama "graciously accepted my resignation," he wrote.
Petraeus was appointed CIA director in April 2011, replacing Leon Panetta, who moved to the Pentagon to become defense secretary.
Petraeus served as commander of the war in Afghanistan in 2010-2011. Because of that role, he was seen as bringing a “customer’s eye” to the intelligence job. Before that, he served as commander of the U.S. Central Command and as the commanding general of U.S. forces in Iraq.

Re: David Petraeus resigns

I just read a story yesterday, that Petraeus is one of the few that was expected to stick around. Interesting, to say the least.

Petraeus was set to testify on Benghazi next week. Word is that many of the higher ups knew of this affair for quite some time now. Then all of a sudden, Obama gets re-elected, the Benghazi testimony is right around the corner and he "decides" to resign right now.

Quite ironic isn't it?

Although he could still testify, he stated that he will not.

He'd better hurry. He knows too much and is now a liability.

His book is titled "All in"

His mistress is his biographer.

You can't make this stuff up.

No they wont, no matter who they throw under the bus they'll never be able to get the stink off.
