David Petraeus resigns citing extra-marital affair as reason. Tongues will wag over this one, and his legacy will be closely examined, even by his own Conservative worshipers.

The CIA does all kinds of covert operations all over the world which will include:

1) murder

2) bribery

3) extortion

4) scamming

5) lying

etc..............

And the director of this lawless organization is resigning because of something in his personal life that has nothing to do with his job?

You have to be utterly DEADBOLT stupid to buy this. He obviously is at odds with the White House over Libya .

Resignation at the CIA: Why Petraeus Had to Go

By Massimo CalabresiNov. 09, 2012



Posted Image Christy Bowe / Corbis
General David Petraeus attends his confirmation hearing for CIA Director at the Hart Senate Office Building in Washington D.C., June 23, 2011
General David Petraeus announced today that he has resigned as head of the CIA, citing an extramarital affair.
The idea of a senior figure in Washington resigning because of infidelity seems quaint in the post-Clinton era of David Vitter and other still-active public servants who’ve put scandals behind them. Attention will quickly turn to Petraeus’ struggles to establish himself at the agency, the traditional ill will between the CIA and the uniformed military and, of course, Petraeus’ handling of the Benghazi attack.
But the real reason Petraeus was done in by something so easily shrugged off by others in Washington is much simpler than that. In the world of spies, there is a short list of weaknesses you can exploit in your opponents; they include ideology, greed, indebtedness and infidelity. People have spent centuries figuring out how to get people to commit treason. Arguing that the other side is better for humanity, offering to help someone who’s deeply in debt or paying hard cash to the greedy are classic methods. But few are more effective than blackmail, and even in the post-Lewinsky era in Washington, infidelity leaves officials vulnerable.
You can’t lead an organization whose case officers must be impervious to blackmail if you’re vulnerable to it yourself.
Here’s Petraeus’ statement:


HEADQUARTERS Central Intelligence Agency
9 November 2012
Yesterday afternoon, I went to the White House and asked the President to be allowed, for personal reasons, to resign from my position as D/CIA. 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. This afternoon, the President graciously accepted my resignation.
As I depart Langley, I want you to know that it has been the greatest of privileges to have served with you, the officers of our Nation’s Silent Service, a work force that is truly exceptional in every regard. Indeed, you did extraordinary work on a host of critical missions during my time as director, and I am deeply grateful to you for that.
Teddy Roosevelt once observed that life’s greatest gift is the opportunity to work hard at work worth doing. I will always treasure my opportunity to have done that with you and I will always regret the circumstances that brought that work with you to an end.
Thank you for your extraordinary service to our country, and best wishes for continued success in the important endeavors that lie ahead for our country and our Agency.
With admiration and appreciation,
David H. Petraeus

Been following this story today. What a way to throw away a great great career. The Gen was the most respected military man in America when he took the job as CIA director. His next job was likely to be chairman of joint chief of staff.

FBI had been tipped off and was investigating. The Gen. had no choice, he had to go to save face for the CIA where agents are trained not to fall for a "honey trap".

hopefully the chick he was banging was an upgrade to his wife, not like some of the gutter pigs that ole Cheeta Woods (when you compare them to Tiger's ex-wife) got into

She had better have been worth it, to throw his career away.

You use a term like DEADBOLT STUPID, and follow up by accusing someone who asks for your considered opinion a "child"? .. take the time to read behind the story before over-reacting in a petulant manner ..

Wee David is 1 for 2 in the Middle East .. successful surge by using billions of taxpayer dollars to buy off enough of the tribal opposition in Iraq to tip the scales ..

His strategy in the Afghan skirmish has been a complete failure ..

Someone said he's famous for "always leaving a dead dog on yer door", meaning when he assumed a new position, he did everything he could to make his predecessor look a failure, thus ensuring his success appeared even greater ..

The truth will come out .. hide behind your petulance, Master Bone .. fail to address the issue is fine .. but having you say anyone else is acting like a child is hypocritical beyond belief ..

A suggestion .. I will find my way to stop acting like a "child" when you stop acting like a "turd" .. :)

Yeah, Drybone, you're being condescending about what is your own, preposterous, unsubstantiated theory. It's not even like there's any logic to it, you've tied a D-CIA's departure with one of your own conspiracy theories, presented it as fact, then pre-emptively called everyone who wouldn't buy into it idiots in the hope that no one would call you out.

btw, umbrella is one of the stranger filters I've ever seen.

Not to worry, I'm sure a supermod will be along to deal with the personal attack along with the swear filter bypass.

And the conspiracy crowd is out in full force over the resignation.

Posted Image


Gen. David Petraeus’s sudden resignation as CIA director on Friday quickly ignited widespread speculation among media pundits and journalists about whether the White House had stalled the bombshell announcement until the election was over and some wondered if there was a Libya connection.


“Petraeus resignation. Timing, everything suspicious,” tweeted Rupert Murdoch, the CEO and founder of News Corp. “There has to be more to this story.”


Dana Perino, the former White House spokeswoman for President George W. Bush, noted on Fox News that Petraeus’s announcement came several days before Senate hearings on the attacks on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, at which he was supposed to testify but now no longer will be.


“Five days before the [Benghazi] hearing … it does legitimately raise some eyebrows,” Perino said.


Others on Twitter pointed to news reports highlighting the CIA’s connection to the Benghazi Consulate that came under attack.


“COINCIDENCE?! Petraeus is set to testify NEXT week at a closed door session on Capitol Hill abt Benghazi. Did BHO push him out? This stinks!” tweeted conservative radio host Laura Ingraham.


Ben Shapiro of the conservative Breitbart.com thought the Obama administration was involved and had covered up the news until after the election.


“This is only the latest in a string of groundshaking events demonstrating that the Obama administration hid information vital to the American people during the last days of the 2012 election cycle,” he wrote. “The fact that the most respected soldier of his generation, Petraeus, would be leaving the administration during an Obama second term, had to be known by the White House prior to the election. And they said nothing in order to run out the clock.”


After reports emerged on Friday night that the FBI had at some point begun an investigation after receiving a tip about Petraeus’s affair, Steve Hayes of the Weekly Standard said it was important to find out who knew and when they knew it.


“If [FBI director Robert] Mueller kept it from the president or the president kept it from the country, it’s a huge scandal,” Hayes said on Fox News.


And it wasn’t just conservatives raising questions.


“Petraeus: cheating husband or scapegoat on #Benghazi?” tweeted Elise Labott, a foreign affairs reporter for CNN.


Noam Scheiber of The New Republic asked, “In practice, is there really such low tolerance for spies who have affairs? I’d be shocked if so.”


“The substantive case for stepping down seems to be that you can blackmail an adulterer. But can you once the lapse is known?” tweeted The Washington Post’s Ezra Klein. “IE, if Petraeus admitted the affair to his wife and perhaps the WH, what good would the blackmail do?”


Still, Petraeus had some high-profile defenders. Among them: Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who released a statement in the general’s defense. “We are immensely grateful for General Petraeus’s decades of work on behalf of our nation, our military, and our security,” the statement read in part. “Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family.”


Max Boot, the neoconservative foreign and military policy expert, also had kind words for Petraeus.


“#Petraeus has devoted his life to serving America. Few have done it better,” he tweeted. “Let’s keep that in mind as wolves circle.”


But speculation continued to swirl.


“Presumably, he could have resigned without the confession. So why did he offer it? wrote Paul Mirengoff at the conservative blog PowerLine. “…First, the confession could have been an attempt to preempt the theory that his resignation is Benghazigate related — it provides an alternative explanation. Second, the confession eliminates the opportunity for others (such as folks in the White House) to try to influence his future conduct, including potential statements and/or testimony about Benghazi.”


The conservative blogger Allahpundit raised a slew of questions at HotAir.com, in a series of updates.


“Why would an affair mean that he couldn’t run the CIA anymore? Was he being blackmailed? Or is there more to it than this? Stand by for updates,” Allahpundit wrote in an early post.
