CIA Director Petraeus Resigns,
Cites Extra-Marital Affair

NBC News [Los Angeles], by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/9/2012 3:05:22 PM

Central Intelligence Agency Director David Petraeus has resigned, citing an extra-marital affair, NBC News reported. "Yesterday afternoon, I went to the White House and asked the President to be allowed, for personal reasons, to resign from my position," Petraeus said in his resignation letter. "After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. 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," Petraeus said in the letter.

This president is untouchable and the dear general will fall on his sword and take "credit" for all the nefarious decisions that went on regarding Benghazi.

then, our ever incompetent Darell ISSA will proclaim, "CASE CLOSED!!!"

Lets all move on now and reach across the aisle and pony up more taxes for everyone!!! What a happy 4 years these will be!!!

At least he says he's sorry.

So he resigns over his affair but remains silent about Benghazi.

Where does the weary eye repose when gazing on the great, where neither guilty glory glows nor despicable fate.

If he kept quiet about Benghazi it is a teachable moment as to why personal conduct matters. Not for Dims, of course, since they wouldn't care about either side of the equation.

I smell the handiwork of David Axelrod here.

From the Bamster's earliest days in Chicago, Axelrod specialized in digging up dirt, busting into sealed divorce records, etc. to force Obama's rivals and potential rivals to leave public life.

Affair was with Debbie Wasserman Schultz. It wasn't the betrayal of his wife that caused his resignation but the fact that it was DWS.

The term, How Could You?!?! has more than one meaning. "With her! You can't mean her. You mean you dumped me and those lookers in your office for DWS? You're sick."

She offered her honor.
He honored her offer.
From that time on...
Honor and offer.

Why can't men think before they do this? It is a career-buster unless you are Jesse Jackson or his son. It takes a wife and trashes her--see Hillary Clinton. It is immoral and if you are the head of the CIA, it compromises the trust people should have for you. It paints you as a liar and a cheat (See Bill Clinton) and nobody but the liberals will ever believe anything you ever say again. Petraeus is an idiot. Did he think he could keep this sort of behavior secret? People always tell. Stupid!!!

I believe a couple of things -
first, General Patraeus was smart enough to release this on a Friday;
second, he is a great, great soldier where country comes first;
thirdly, there are men who would follow him to the gates of hell;
fourth, an affair is a badge of honor among dems - we all come short of the glory of God - see above poster on MO of axelgrease;
fifth, the dems play to destroy and to win at all costs, even at the expense of a great soldier; and,
lastly, the MSM will dig thru his trash and try to find the other woman.

Why would anyone devote his life to his country only to be dragged thru the mud like this - OK, so we all sin and he came clean about it. Why would any young soldier aspire to greatness?

We're cutting the military back to its bare bones so when they are needed, they will manage with less and less to be successful and try to protect us.

My brain, without giving a reason, connects the General's resignation with the eviction of the Winston Churchill bust. Brain says Obama just couldn't stand to have Petraeus around just like he couldn't stand to have the bust around.

My very first thought was that he called their bluff. Maybe he was having an affair, but maybe he decided to blow them out of the water by admitting it. maybe he has enough Benghazi evidence to do some real damage. Too weird.

So what does the Devil (for those who still believe a dark force called the Prince of the Earth exists)have in common with this those in this story? He uses them and when they have given him their all, he destroys them in delight.

If Satan didn't own the world and the nations, how could he offer the Lord or Lords that perk on the Temple spires.

Luckily he has no power in the other Kingdom, the Kingdom of light, not to menton hope and peace. RIP General.

An affair with Senator Elect Liz Warren's assistant? What a small world, thought it might be a Russian or Iranian spy vs. a Cherokee democrat coat holder.
How convenient that it gets announced after the election, as was the attempted shoot down of a US drown.

Wait a minute. Maybe the general has just one-upped the slimballs. Could it be they were holding this over him and he has said "fine, I had an affair. I'll admit it. I quit!" Now they have no leverage to blackmail him and he is free to say what he wants.

Was he set up?
Did it just happen?
Did they "always" know about it?

Could/would" Obama use it, "if necessary!

Will Petraeus testify before Congress?

Sadly, Patraeus should have known better! The Libs called him General Betray-US! They have no consideration - only "use" those who do not fit into their plans will be thrown under the bus!

Time for America to rise up and say "Why now!" This should have been reported sooner, if true.

What does Mrs. Petraus say? Is she going along with the Obama henchmen just to have her husband with her.

There is no love between those who will use anyone for their agenda!

Obama may have won, but he is still accountable to Almighty God. He knows the whole truth. He alone is able to define who Obama is and why he does what he does.

This is not over. Obama will trip up one day! The real Obama will stand before US in his empty suit, gazing at his empty chair!

God has His payday, maybe not tomorrow, but Obama will be held accountable. He alone will suffer the consequences of his actions, as will the whole liberal party, mainly the liberal media, who again defied the country, lied about Romney, set in order their socialistic agenda. Sadly, they will lose there too! Satan is a very harsh employer!

Obama's opposition research team knew of his affair, kept it under wraps, then sprung it just as he was to be called to testify on Benghazi.

Who do they think they are fooling?

I hope that he testifies as former director of the CIA, and that the entity(ies) conducting the hearing(s) do not let this enter into their evaluation of his testimony.

If you can't unseal divorce records, the thug in chief will do the next best thing and find dirty laundry and silence you with it.
But, now the cat is out of the bag, Pet should be able to scream to the heavens about how kenyan idiot boy ignored 3 pleas for help and let 4 Americans be slaughtered.
If he was a real man, Pet would sing like a bird now. But alas, he has been plucked by Jarrett.

My feeling is that the Gen thought Obama wouldn't win and allowed them to keep him silent for a time. If Romney won, he could aid the investigation. Now he's out and he can aid the investigation. I hope.

I'm probably giving him way too much benefit of the doubt, but he's been solid before this incident so I think he's earned it.

It's disorienting to see someone in DC doing the honorable thing after committing what used to be a dishonorable act. I'm soooo confused...

I guess Hillary can close her file on Petrarus now. He probably had the goods on the State Deparment over Benghazi and was willing to come clean to keep the CIA from being scapegoated. I suppose he was already retired from the Army, not on loan, so this shouldn't affect his retirement pay.

No doubt in my mind, Bam Bam had data from Jarrett and they were waiting for the opportune moment to tell Petraeus to resign or they would go public. There was no reason in the world for such information to be given unless obama wanted...... "REVENGE".
Watch for other resignations with the same type of vindictive reasons.

Patraeus: ''Honey, I have to get out of this government before it implodes and takes all of us down with it. Do you care if I claim to have had an affair so that they can't stop me from leaving?''

Mrs. Patraeus: ''Sounds good to me. Say you had 5 affairs with hookers if that is what it takes to get away!!!''

P: ''Thanks, Honey!''

Mrs. P: ''Any time, Babe...''

I don't believe this for one second. They do NOT want Petraeus to testify. It's BS and once again, the most transparent administration is a total FOG. It's CRAP.

Unless he was having this affair in the Oval Office,.......oh wait, that happened already and the miscreant got away with it. Never mind.

I agree, he resigned over an affair? Barbra Streisand, there is something WAY more to this.

Just the start of the purge of this corrupt presidency.

It is very difficult to find the serious thinkers on this thread. This really isn't the place for drivebys.

It doesn't take a genius to figure out that the timing on this is very suspicious. And the fact that we knew Petraeus was going to have to pull the rug out from under Obie and his fools when he went before a hearing, under oath.

The Obama dirt machine knew about the affair and simply held that information until an appropriate time for maximum effect and benefit to Obama. That time was now.

There's a strategy here that's related to Benghazi. Obama fears Benghazi more than he does anything else. There's no escape hatch on the Benghazi issue for him.

This left him completely vulnerable to blackmail from our outside enemies...and they are many. He was a massive national security risk and had a target painted on him by engaging in this dishonorable behavior. A huge national security risk.

As it is, his blackmailers may end having been closer to home...the Chicago brigade occupying the White House and most of the rest of government.

Can't resist rats when I smell them - consider the others of the regime who are resigning too - Hillary, Geitner, Holder and consider too that the tragic "murderous nanny" story was abruptly withdrawn from CNBC [Kevin Klim] -in association with the inquest into the missing 43 $trillions. Something is up - keep sniffing.

I've had problems in my marriage, but I and my wife have worked them out, therefore I elect to remain CIA director. Someone must have threatened Petraeus here(more likely Obama or one of his henchmen)and Petraeus cowered out and resigned?

My God it seems like Satan has found a permanent foothold here in the Obama Administration?

Will his "partner" in crime, confess too?

The Libs identify "with" adultery as well as abortion!

The "majority" had denied God in their Democratic platform, still denying Him on the third vote,then the one in charge declaring they will "change back" to win an election!

Also, the Dems denied Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel. Don't look for any cooperation with Israel, God's people, who promised them the land "forever"! They are trying to usurp God's power! Not a good plan!

The Dems have met their match when they think they can challenge God. The votable Dems loved/loves their entitlements and will cry out "Obama gave it to me", not knowing or want to know that their neighbors (employed) are suffering to supply them with their Obama gifts!

Today, we as Christians, have an opportunity to "let our light shine", knowing God is sovereign and He is just, giving them enough rope to hang themselves! Satan first deceives, then makes his prey to "feel" they are not important, then goes further to "steal/kill/destroy" to further his agenda!

This war is not over. We will have many battles/skirmishes, but God loves US and wants US to make a stand for righteousness and it is only found in Jesus Christ, God's only-begotten Son - John 3:16. He came to set the captives (those under Satanic bondage) free and it only found in Him.

Time to get on your knees and acknowledge God as the only means by which we are/will be saved!

Pray in agreement with God's holy Word! God's Door (Jesus) is open, ready/willing/able to "deliver US from all evil, here and abroad. Amen

It's the Chicago way. Get rid of all the witnesses. 0blamer and Axelrod are experienced in this type operation.
The house should supeona him as a private citizen to be a witness as to what he knew when.
I am really afraid we have just elected a Hugo Chavez clone for at least 4 more years.
Maybe this will be bad enough that even the corrupt Harry Ried Senate will have to vote to convict upon impeachmaent.

From my Conservative Christian friends in Wash. DC, from a Biblical viewpoint -- EVERY man and woman, who comes there to serve, is bombarded by temptations to sin, in EVERY way possible. And, these temptations NEVER stop.

General Petraeus succumbed to the temptations. He, his wife and family, the CIA, and We the People are paying the severe penalty for his sin.

I am making observations. I am not throwing the first stone.

Our actions have consequences... sometimes terrible consequences.

Ummm - - he said he had an "extramarital affair" - - but he didn't say it was a sexual dalliance - - did he?

Maybe it was a financial affair - - maybe a political affair? Certainly an "affair" which Zippy's thugs used to cow him.

Dear friends, always parse the words - - never assume you know the meaning. In fact - - we can't even be sure what the meaning of "is" is.

So - - is it all a bunch of crap? Absolutely. There's so much more going on that our decent, honest minds can't begin to contemplate it. One thing we do know - - with absolute, metaphysical certainty - - - - -

John Bolton is telling Neal Cavuto that Petraeus will be testifying on Benghazi. Even if they have to subpoena him. Bolton is confident that he will have to tell his story, "maybe not Thursday, but in days or weeks". In either open or closed (classified) hearings, he will have to tell what happened from the CIA's point of view.

I trust John Bolton.

How little faith some of you posters have. Charlie Rangel was just on TV, and he said he is not suspicious of the timing. So, now we can all relax, the media will climb all over Petraeus for a few days, then Benghazi and the four dead Americans will never be mentioned again. Obama wins again!!!

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Sheesh! Talk about a complete ingrate... Many people suspect that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) instigated an over the top paramilitary confrontation with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy at the behest of Senator Harry Reid especially since the new BLM director, Neil Kornze, was an aide to Reid. So how does Harry´s son, Rory Reid, thank the BLM rangers for putting their lives at risk over desert tortoises that are being euthanized by the Feds? Why, he slams them as "losers" on Las Vegas television station KSNV where Rory serves as a commentator from the left. You can see Reid in

After his Masters victory, pro golfer Bubba Watson celebrated with his family at a Waffle House. Pictures tweeted from there went viral. Waffle House appreciated the appreciation. What´s not to like about this great story? Apparently some self-appointed nanny state-loving guardians of nutrition like Katherine Tallmadge believe that Watson set a bad example for Americans by eating there. Oh, and with her powers of telepathy, she just knows that Watson´s a complete phony about what he really eats. She went after Watson on one of Neil Cavuto´s Fox programs yesterday, and in doing so caught talk show host Rush Limbaugh´s

In fact, since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far-right wing ideologies, including white supremacists, anti-abortion extremists and anti-government militants, have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda´s ideology.

Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future.

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)
