Well he could always get Bill Clinton to defend him. That is, if he hadn't been disbarred for perjuring himself over cheating on his wife.

I'm sure Eric Holder will get right on that.

I'm just telling you how it is. He showed exceedingly poor judgement. He put himself in the position to be blackmailed. He is responsible, after the President, for the national security of the US.

If you think this is no big deal just wait for all the voices in DC demanding that he stay.
The silence will be deafening.

Maybe he should have just driven her off a bridge, and left her to drown. That's a resume enhancer in the Dem party.

He has no constituency, why would anyone expect voices demanding he stay?

Has anyone stated the obvious yet?

Petraeus was the media leak and the affair was with a journalist.

Obama administration plugging the hole

Well I heard from my DC sources that the Prez didn't want him to go. Petraeus submitted his resignation and the Prez told him to think about it some more. Petraeus insisted and the Prez accepted.

The administration felt the general had enough political capital and star power to get over the tarnish and still effectively do his job but this was something personal to the General. He and Chuck Hagel (former republican senator from Nebraska) were the top SECDEF names for when Panetta leaves by Sept '13

Yea.. Of course that would be reported and released.. You don't think little stories are floated around DC with a purpose? If anyone thinks this affair hasn't been known about and being held to vest for a very long time they are very naive.

I'm speculating here but could it be Paula Broadwell, Petraeus' biographer?



Did Petraeus go All In on her?

NBC now saying she is under investigation by the FBI to see if she had access to secret material

Slate now reporting it is her

Possible.. She does have a shite load of ties to the media. We also know that someone was leaking info at the wrong times against the will of the administration. Right after one story would come out a leak would occur to make put the previous story at odds. I have seen some speculation that the leak was Petraeus.

Looks like FBI is investigating her for improperly trying to access his email

eta: actually, it seems the affair came to light after the FBI was already investigating her

She happens to be writing for the Daily Beast. Wrote this just this week:

General David Petraeus’s Rules for Living

I've got to wonder whether she supplied any info to Eli Lake

Wait a minute...the head of the C-I-frickin-A can't keep his affair secret? Aren't they supposed to be the experts at keeping shite secret?

Just reported by Fox News. Sorry It was on the TV. No link yet.

Of course their source might be TD.com so who knows.
