His resignation to the President cited an extramarital affair as the reason.
David Petraeus, the retired four-star general who led the U.S. military campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan, has resigned as director of the CIA after admitting he had an extramarital affair.
The resignation shocked Washington’s intelligence and political communities, representing a sudden end to the public career of the best-known general of the post 9/11 wars.
I’m sure Petraeus’ scheduled appearance at the closed door Senate Intelligence Committee hearings on Benghazi next week are a complete coincidence to today’s announcement.
