Yeah... something like that makes a man in his position vulnerable to blackmail and also there's the trust issues...

I doubt that is something you'd admit to just to escape a political situation...

Usually, they try to sweep that kind of thing under the rug, so for him to admit it, I'd say it is legit.

No way, totally out of the question. It's unthinkable that a General who has had ultimate power over thousands of people for several decades could feel like he could get away with something like that.

It has to be a conspiracy. Because there's just no way Patraeus could simply say "I want to resign" like Hillary and the other 5 or so cabinet members did.

Patraeus wasn't towing the party line regarding Benghazi and someone had this information I bet.

Maybe Patraeus' wife should run for Senate of New York. She's earned it.

I can't believe Petreaus was having an affair and was caught! Thats so out of the realm of possibility!

I can totally believe the he made up hes having an affair to cover up Obama wanting mericans to die while he watches smugly in his cozy situation room before he campaigns!

This, more likely ... not that the affair didn't happen, but that it became "convenient" ....

Clinton and Petraeus. Benghazi is going to get ugly and we all should be asking the media why they didn't move on this story when the details come out.

Speaking on CNN, former CIA operative Bob Baer noted that while resignations from extramarital affairs are not unheard of at the agency, they are almost never the announced reason for giving up the post.
"I think there's a big story behind it," Baer said.

Keep in mind that Patraeus was scheduled to testify next week on Capitol Hill in hearings on the Benghazi attacks.

Now that he's resigned:

[quote]Following Petraeus's announcement, a spokeswoman for the committee said that the hearing is expected to proceed as scheduled, though the CIA director's immediate resignation will likely change the witness list. It's not immediately clear if the CIA will send a replacement witness to testify, though CIA Deputy Director Mike Morell, now acting director is reportedly in line for Petraeus's position.[/quote]

You know and then there's this:

[quote]
Breaking news on Benghazi: the CIA spokesman, presumably at the direction of CIA director David Petraeus, has put out [url="https://twitter.com/jaketapper/status/261936225106132993"]this statement[/url]: "No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate. ”
[img]http://www.weeklystandard.com/sites/all/files/imagecache/teaser-large/images/teasers/obama_hero_addressnation_072511.jpg[/img]


So who in the [url="http://weeklystandard.com/blogs/osama-bin-laden-dead-so-are-tyrone-woods-and-glen-doherty_657876.html"]government[/url] did tell “anybody” not to help those in need? [i]Someone[/i] decided not to send in military assets to help those Agency operators. Would the secretary of defense make such a decision on his own? No.
It would have been a presidential decision. There was presumably a rationale for such a decision. What was it? When and why—and based on whose counsel obtained in what meetings or conversations—did President Obama decide against sending in military assets to help the Americans in need?
[/quote]

Then we keep in mind the recent revelations that those killed and that embassy's "annex" were actually being used as a site for a secret CIA mission. Then, consequently, we have the CIA paying to suppress news coverage surrounding the attacks.......

But yeah, about that extramarital affair.......

Update:

[quote]A Senate Intelligence Committee spokesman tells Human Events that Morell will testify in Petraeus’s place at a closed-door hearing for that committee on Benghazi matters, also scheduled for Thursday.[/quote]
