Petraeus Quits

In a bizarre turn of events, CIA Director David Petraeus has tendered his resignation today after the FBI discovered he was having an affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell, who is under investigation for improperly accessing classified information.

In his resignation letter, Petraeus couched the decision as a function of his moral failing, saying “such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours.” Petraeus has been married for 37 years. Broadwell is also reportedly married with two children.

The real question, however, is not so much about the “extensive access” to his person that Broadwell was given while penning the biography All In, but rather access she may have been given to his personal email account, which was being monitored by the FBI as part of the investigation. So far no charges have been filed and the FBI insists that Petraeus himself wasn’t under investigation…

Hmmmm.  The man has been in the assassination and murder business and he resigns over an affair?


…David Betrayus is a worthless company man, a YES man, who served the power elite his entire life, constantly looking to ingratiate himself to power anyway he could.

When the Holy Roman mobster Leon Panetta decided to feign leaving the CIA for the Pentagon top job, so he could run both, he needed a little weasel stuffed suit to fill his desk at spook central to make it appear at least that he wasn’t still running the show; enter the “ass kissing little chickenshit” David Petraeus…
