    CIA Director, former General David Petraeus resigns

    For personal reasons, cites an extra-martial affair. Andrea Mitchell just broke this on MSNBC.

    Sad ending to a fantastic public service career.

    So now it's the "Damm Libruls" fault when a General needs to resign when caught fornicating

    Is FoxNews demanding another unneeded Congressional Investigation of this now that nobody showed the slightest interest in their last frivolous Investigation clamoring

    Dude, enough with the baiting. I've warned you once.

    To the OP: this is very dissapointing. His career is almost legendary when you think about it. There must be something more to this affair that is forcing him to resign.

    Im sure his family isnt laughing.

    That being said, only n puritanical America do you see people resigning over extra-marital affairs. Its pathetic. Somehow i think there may be more to this story.

    Fox News is already peddling this theory. Some former military guy on Cavuto's show thinks "the Chicago guys" had this affair card in their back pocket and decided to use it after the election because the director refused to go along with them on their Bengazi story.

    @markknoller: Senate Intelligence Committee says Petraeus will not testify at next week’s closed hearing on the events in Benghazi.

    Mmmmm. The plot thickens.

    Is there public pressure for him to resign? My guess is the affair lead to troubles in his marriage, and he's taking the time to try and fix it. Personal decision, nothing wrong with that.

    Or maybe the great General purposely misled the administration with questinable intel to make them look bad for political reasons?

    Can't believe Petraeus fell for the honeypot!

    Yeah, prob has to do with him gallivanting around with her when Benghazi happened, and it would come out in hearings when Congress takes a closer look at the timeline.

    On the upside, maybe him and Bernie Kerick can be pals now.

    Its about as believable as :

    "the Chicago guys" had this affair card in their back pocket and decided to use it after the election because the director refused to go along with them on their Bengazi story.

    But im sure you dont doubt that story

    Whatever the case, it's sad.

    Whatever the case, I doubt we (the proles) will ever know 10% of the truth of what actually happened, or happened behind the scenes.

    Same as Fast & Furious

    Same as Libya

    Same as....pretty much everything our Government does at that top level.

    The little we get, bread and circuses.

    He was a good soldier and a fine American who served his country proudly and based on my time in beautiful Pleiku, I'm not usually a big fan of scrambled egg hat guys with stars. I'm sorry his service to America ended in this apparently negative way

    Those looking for political conspiracy under every rock should be ashamed of themselves

    NBC is reporting the FBI investigated David Petraeus and Paula Broadwell, the general's biographer.
