Posted on 11/09/2012 12:10:35 PM PST by Brandonmark
Central Intelligence Agency Director David Petraeus has resigned, citing an extra-marital affair, NBC News reported.
"Yesterday afternoon, I went to the White House and asked the President to be allowed, for personal reasons, to resign from my position," Petraeus said in his resignation letter. "After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours."

Hillary eliminates a competitor. It’s the Clinton way.
Guess Obama can’t black mail him anymore.
Sounds fishy to me.
why, why Patreaus couldn’t you keep the zipper up? What is these people’s problem
Maybe Obama set up the honey trap.
Sad........wonder if he thinks it was worth it now.
I never liked the guy, but, man, a military guy in with all them grifter lawyers? He never had a chance.
I guess for Mrs. Petraus he was “General BETRAY US” after all.
Now he’s free to testify.
Petraeus betray us—and wifey too. The Libs were right about him afterall. (’ Now he can get a promotion in the DemRat party.
This makes me sad
“I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours.”
Heck the RATS would have loved him. this makes points with the media, he should have got advice with “Slick Willie”.
What’s the big deal? Didn’t Clinton change the game by not only getting away with it but having his popularity skyrocket as a result?
I really respect the General and unfortunately resigning is the right thing to do in today's world.
(Put on tin foil hat)... Maybe this is to distract from Benghazi and keep Patraeus from telling the truth about whatever happened there. (hat off for now)
They've greased him.
There’s the doorman.
Resign over an affair?!? I thought that was a resume enhancer in post Clinton America...
What’s the big deal? Didn’t Clinton change the game by not only getting away with it but also perjuring himself and having his popularity skyrocket as a result?
