CIA DIRECTOR RESIGNS
#1


CIA Director David Petraeus resigned as head of the intelligence agency, saying he "showed extremely poor judgment" by engaging in an extramarital affair.

I don't think that's a good enough reason to resign. I understand that opinion will be disagreed with.

I wonder what the other woman looks like. Does anyone know yet? Is she sexy looking?

He was the head of the CIA and having an adulterous affair behind the scenes, well that's a dangerous business, dangerous for our Country IMHO.

And The “Reporter” Who Had An Affair With David Petraeus Is…Paula Broadwell
A.J. Daulerio
Slate confirmed this just moments ago, that Paula Broadwell, co-author of All In: The Education of General David, was the not-so-mysterious other woman who forced his resignation. According to Slate, the two were long rumored to be chummy and often went on five mile jogs together, but Petraeus was "so square" that it was all dismissed as scuttlebutt. Nope.

Good news is that Broadwell's inevitable skyrocket to the top of web searches may help her book sales.

More when we have it...

If the CIA director can't figure out how to keep an affair on the down low, he's probably not fit for the job. Smiley_emoticons_slash

I wonder if she wrangled any national security secrets out of him during pillow talk?

Meh. Shame. He was well regarded. I don't think he needed to resign but I guess he preferred that over weeks of Christian wingnuts calling for his resignation. You know that would have happened.

From Business Insider.

The FBI Has Been Investigating Petraeus' Biographer (And Reported Mistress) Over Access To Classified Info
Kim Bhasin | Nov. 9, 2012, 6:23 PM

... The FBI investigation is seeing whether she had improper access to General Petraeus' emails and may have had access to his ... may have accidentally or deliberately had access to classified information. And so we know this investigation is taking place, and that it has identified Paula Broadwell.
The investigation began last spring, reports Ronald Kessler at conservative magazine Newsmax.
Kessler's report claims that the FBI intercepted Petraeus' emails with Broadwell, and they had included sexually explicit references, like "sex under a desk." The pair reportedly broke up some point after Petraeus become CIA Director, but he continued sending thousands of emails to her over the past few months.
Fox News also has some information about the investigation. It's reporting that the FBI was originally investigating an unrelated case and happened to stumble upon Petraeus' affair:
The FBI had been investigating an unrelated and much broader case before stumbling on the affair. Fox News has learned that during the course of this investigation, the name of journalist and Petraeus biographer Paula Broadwell came up. The FBI followed that lead and in doing so, uncovered his affair with her. The FBI for some time was concerned that perhaps Petraeus was some sort of victim, but there has been no evidence discovered to back up such concerns.

Gosh, he is really beating himself up over this.

I'm laughing at you clowns who are insinuating it's the religious right or moral majority that would've been calling for him to resign.

Ignorant morons.

How 'bout the fact that he's in charge of all the country's secrets and he's sleeping around. Might make him susceptible to potential spies from other countries who now know his weakness: tits and ass.

Bottom line: Can't be trusted with national trust.

Wake the fuck up.

Bitch please. He wasn't sleeping around, he was fucking one woman. So what. I'm not worried at all that he divulged something he shouldn't have. I loathe it when this kind of thing happens because it brings people like you out of the woodwork. Who he fucks has no bearing on how well he does his job.

Look at his wife for christssake, I can see why he did it. Smiley_emoticons_smile

Whether his wife is a mutt or not, his position cannot allow this sort of transgression. Same with the presidency.

Nothing to do with morals. We're all human, we all face temptations. IMO, certain job-holders, it doesn't matter.

When your position allows you to be trusted with national security, you're out if you fuck around, because you're weak, and the enemy will do what they can to use/exploit you.
