    Exclamation Breaking: CIA Director David Patraeus Resigns

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...=feeds-newsxml

    I want some answers, I think we all do.

    1) Why is he resigning?
    2) Does this have anything to do with Libya?

    I hope they give us these answers.

    BREAKING NEWS: David Petraeus resigns as head of CIA after admitting to extra-marital

    David Petraeus today resigned as director of the CIA after admitting an extra-marital affair.

    The former general had been one of the most respected figures in the military and intelligence establishment, but has stepped down to deal with the 'personal and professional issues' surrounding his relationship with a woman who is not his wife.

    He had been sworn in as head of the CIA in September 2011.

    I hope so too. I don't think they will though, especially if the reason has anything to do with Libya.

    The director of the Central Intelligence Agency David Petraeus submitted his resignation today, citing an extramarital affair.
    "After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair," Petraeus said in a message sent to CIA staff. "Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours. This afternoon, the President graciously accepted my resignation."

    Why would it have anything to do with Libya ?

    Petraeus will only be famous as a Bush neocon who wrote a counterinsurgency thesis based on our boys getting slaughtered in Iraq.
