Did Petreaus Betray Us (And If Not Us, His Wife... After The Election Of Course)

Tyler Durden's picture


Update, in which we find the true reason for the affair: Petraeus Won’t Testify on Benghazi Next Week, Senate Aide Says.  In other words, next time one is called to testify before a panel over the deaths of 4 people including one US ambassador, one just pulls the infidelity "get out of testimony" card and all is well.

* * *

A mere few days after the re-election of our president, CIA Director David Petraeus annoucnes his resignation:


The reason - an extra-marital affair...


Of course, the defense is already known: Petreaus did not commit that affair... the government did it for him

Via AP:

David Petraeus has resigned as director of the CIA after admitting he had an extramarital affair.


According to his letter of resignation, Petraeus asked President Barack Obama on Thursday to allow him to resign, and on Friday the president accepted.


Petraeus said in a statement that he had shown "extremely poor judgment" in having an affair.

and From the Director of National Intelligence...



Today, CIA Director David Petraeus submitted his letter of resignation to the President. Dave’s decision to step down represents the loss of one of our nation’s most respected public servants. From his long, illustrious Army career to his leadership at the helm of CIA, Dave has redefined what it means to serve and sacrifice for one’s country.


Since he took over as Director in September of last year, he and I have worked together to tackle some of the most challenging issues faced by the Intelligence Community in more than a decade. Under his leadership, the CIA remained instrumental in providing our policy makers decision advantage through the best possible intelligence. I’m particularly thankful for Dave’s unwavering support and personal commitment to my efforts to lead the Intelligence Community and integrate our intelligence enterprise.


Whether he was in uniform leading our nation’s troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, or at CIA headquarters leading the effort to generate intelligence used to keep our nation safe, Dave inspired people who had the privilege of working with him.


I have spent more than five decades serving our country–in uniform and out–and of all the exceptional men and women I have worked with over the years, I can honestly say that Dave Petraeus stands out as one of our nation’s great patriots.


On behalf of the entire Intelligence Community, I thank Dave for his service, his support and his continued friendship.

And the small fact that Barry is Queer as a three dollar bill has no relevance to anything, anywhere.

Gotta love the Jew York Media.

One of the attachments is a picture of General Petraeus's wife, the other is a picture of the woman he had an affair with.  It's no mystery to me which is which and why he did it.

That’s a good one!

Strong resemblance there although Chewie is a good bit more svelte below the beltline (and probably fresher).

You do not suck.  What happened is what happened.  We cannot change that.  The past is the past.

What we can change, as individuals, in the New America, is more important.  I believe that becoming physically fit, financially fit and spiritually fit is what we must do in the New America to be able to deal with what comes down the road.

I just wanted Obama to fail. I thought it would be close and every vote counts only to remember that my vote probably does NOT count.

C'mon man. Your TCC should have taught you to be here now.

Once your head is in the right place then it all makes sense.

I am a slow learner, Gully Foyle.  TCC has helped, but now I have started something NEW that is helping even more.  TCC still plays its role though.

Spiritual progress, not spiritual perfection. is what I hope to claim.


Tai Chi is not enough.

Talk about voting, there was an opinion poll about "Would you voluntarily/be OK with a TSA body cavity search before flying?"

Something like 33% of the folks said YES!
66% said no and 1% said they weren't sure.

Talk about my vote not counting, I said "It all depends"


Disenfranchised again... damn
