UPDATE: Petraeus will NOT be testifying before the Senate Intelligence Committee next week as had been scheduled. Story here.
After admitting to an extramarital affair, General Patraeus has resigned as Director of CIA. More here. I have to wonder if there’s something more to this, something more like the Benghazi cover up. Time, and investigations, will tell.
More here and here. What a dope to have thrown away his life and his future this way. His kids were so proud of him, now that’s all gone. Now any thought of a career after this is gone. His marriage may well be gone too.
Who would ever have thought that General David Petraeus would turn out to be no better than sleazy John Edwards?
The question remains, why confess this now and resign? There’s more to come with this story.
UPDATE: General Petraeus was scheduled to testify next week on what happened in Benghazi. After his resignation it was announced that he will not testify. He has maintained that neither he nor the CIA refused to help the Navy Seals.
