CIA Director Petraeus resigns over extra-marital affair - before tesitying on Libya
 
Holy smokes! I didn't see this coming :yikes:

General Patraeus, America's famous General?

I'm disappointed, and as a Veteran, feel let down. :(

CIA director David Petraeus resigns over extramarital affair

Editor's note: Retired Gen. David Petraeus stepped down Friday as head of the Central Intelligence Agency - 14 months after taking the job, days after the presidential election and days before he was set to testify before Congress about an attack on a U.S. consulate in Libya that left four Americans dead.

---------

Petraeus issued a statement announcing his resignation, saying, "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."

That's too bad....I've always liked and respected him.

kaput 11-09-2012 03:56 PM

Now why would he do that? I hope he still gets brought in to testify.

russ330 11-09-2012 04:23 PM

I wonder when the affair happened. :hmm: I wouldn't be surprised if being in DC corrupted him.

Hey... The guy is human isn't he?

kaput 11-09-2012 04:31 PM

I am not talking aboutthe affair... the resignation, the timing... Seems very coincidental.

Wraisil 11-09-2012 04:31 PM

Okay, he retired. What does that have to do with his testimony? Retired/Active/Civilian doesn't matter when it comes to Congressional summons to testify. It's still legally required to go if they say to come testify..

kaput 11-09-2012 04:33 PM

Exactly... IF. If they bring him in. that is the point. He was scheduled to do so. If he doesn't afterall, or is no longer asked to, something is up.

Well, so far, according to the news he isn't anymore. He was supposed to testify for the CIA and what they knew or didn't know. Since he's resigned, he now can't speak on behalf of the CIA anymore. The deputy director likely will.

Bret Baier of Fox News just tweeted, "With Petraeus' resignation effective immediately, he will not testify next week & lawmakers are said to be 'stunned' by the announcement."

Speculation is speculative.

Not bad general. Not bad.

MDydinanM 11-09-2012 06:04 PM

holy smokes...again! :yikes:

Is that Paula Broadwell, former Army Capt, that wrote the book "All In", a biography of Petraues? It all makes sense now...she even accompanied Petraues to Afghanistan.
