CIA Director David Petraeus is quitting, citing personal reasons, a government source says. An extra marital affair? He seemed like a most capable man for the CIA position. "After being married for more than 37 years I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair," Petraeus wrote in his letter. "Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as a leader of an organization such as ours." Petraeus said that the president accepted his resignation on Thursday."

Anyone, with a security clearance has to stay above reproach. If you compromise yourself through personal or financial actions, you become subject to blackmail or bribery. He was correct in admitting it and resigning before he became a security threat.
Rogue FBI agent LEAKS the investigation information to republican congressman Dave Reichert , who pushes it onto Eric Cantor. Why Cantor? Because he expected Cantor to use it politically in the Benghazi faux-scandel to try to harm the President politically before the election.
I bet this eventually connects to Murdoch/FoxNews, Rove and GOP kingpins as the investigation unfolds. I expect to hear this is an essential part of the story for FoxNews pushing their fantasy Benghazi story so hard.
From the article's comments page, this theory is just typical of what I expected to come:
In the summer, Drudge was airing speculation that Romney might pick Petraeus as his running mate. This probably led the White House to have Holder order up some dirt on Petraeus, as insurance. So, that's why this investigation got started. Of course, Petraeus did not get picked as Romney's running-mate, so Obama no longer needed this dirt, which is why the investigation petered out. But then Cantor steps in, effectively telling the FBI "We know. You can't cover this up." And the rest is history. All started because of Drudge's rumor, and Obama's desire to obtain blackmail material on a potential opponent.
"I don't know if a lot of you have heard this, but the CIA annex had actually taken a couple of Libyan militia members prisoner and they think that the attack on the consulate was an effort to get these prisoners back," said Broadwell in a speech last month at the University of Denver."---(CNN)
Did she spill any secrets ? Also, now the FBI is investigating General Allen..... Uh oh!
This is real. Denver's ABC news reported on the breaking story, obviously didn't pay much attention when their graphics guy went to the internet to grab a photo of Broadwell's book cover…. oh that pesky internet! Here's a screen shot from last night's broadcast:
(I am surprised no one took offense to my obvious misprint in the subject line. Of course I meant bigger but the virtual keyboard on the iPad is quirky. I guess one has to hit those keys smack in the middle! )
In the last few months there have been 5 high ranking general & admirals fired or resigned. This Petraeus snafu seems to be related.
Is Obama cleaning house of the Bush era neocons? Was there a risk of a military coup d'etat? Why was Eric Cantor involved? Something much more serious is playing out than a couple of old generals banging uppercrust MILFs.
What's got my attention is the FBI agent that started this whole thing. It's been said he had a pronounced right-side limp, if ya know what I mean, and thought he might break something before the election.
Jill Kelley, Woman Who Sparked Petraeus Scandal, Ran Questionable Charity
WASHINGTON -- Tampa, Fla., socialite and military hostess Jill Kelley, one of the women at the center of the ever-expanding scandal that brought down former CIA Director David Petraeus, founded a questionable charity for cancer patients with her surgeon husband, Scott Kelley.
Based out of the couple's mansion, the Doctor Kelley Cancer Foundation claimed on its tax forms that it "shall be operated exclusively to conduct cancer research and to grant wishes to terminally ill adult cancer patients."
I think it all goes much deeper. Prior to Patraeus five other high ranking generals and admirals have recently resigned or been fired. I think these Bush-era military guys are PISSED that Obama's ending the wars. That, and the fact that old generals like shagging uppercrust MILFs.
