CIA Director David Petraeus stepping down...
 
...supposedly due to extramarital affair.

Carrie Mathison is such a minx!

-------------------------
3:02PM EST November 9. 2012 - NBC reported Friday that CIA director David Petraeus has resigned from the CIA, citing an extramarital affair.

NBC's Andrea Mitchell said the resignation was submitted in a letter dated Friday and was accepted by the White House.

In a letter, Petraeus noted that he had been married for 37 years and had exercised "extremely poor judgment' in conducting an extramarital affair.

Petraues took over as head of the CIA in September of 2011 following his tour as head of allied forces in Afghanistan.

Do you think this is a cover story or the up coming Benghazi investigations? He did push the same false narrative the administration did after the attack.

Being the CIA Director Iím sure he could quietly make this go away if he really wanted too. He wants out, for whatever reason.

There has to be more. Maybe he told her things he shouldn't.

I'd be willing to bet that this happened when he was still an army officer.

Military men like him have honor and he broke the honor code so he is doing the right thing.

CIA and other intelligence communities are a bit more severe about extramarital affairs because it opens the door to blackmail. I don't know if this would extend all the way up to the head of the CIA.

Hey, look. Time for a Benghazi update.

1) The embassy in Benghazi was attacked in what now appears to be an operation by a terrorist organization. This was announced at the time by the POTUS and Secretary of State as a general protest gone wrong, but there is reason to believe that they had the correct information at the time.

2) The CIA sent field operatives to thwart the operation but they were poorly prepared, poorly manned and poorly equipped to deal with it.

3) Military assets were available in the area but were not used. The Secretary of Defense stated that his senior man in the area strongly believed that intervention by the military would not be prudent. Contrarily, his senior man said that he didn't use those assets because he was not ordered to.

4) So far the senior Navy officer in the area was removed from his command and brought back to the US pending an investigation into "inappropriate judgement." The senior man in the area that the SecDef referred to suddenly announced his retirement within a month of the attack. The director of the CIA just stepped down citing an extramarital affair, and as of 11/09/12 will no longer testify at the investigation next week. As of 11/14/12 NBC has reported that Petraeus will testify.

5) Petraeus has testified that the CIA's official stance was that the Benghazi attack was a terrorist attack.


Sure. It must all be a coincidence.
