It's ironic that this comes up as part of the Benghazi fallout. Security risk? Really?
What, were they afraid Petraeus was going to LET PEOPLE DIE or something?
The security risk of an affair in this day and age is not at all what it used to be. All you have to do is call the bluff. You tell your wife and she
dumps you or not. It's the vultures in the press and your political enemies who pretend its still some big awful unheard of thing.
Frankly, at that level, most wives KNOW the affair is/was going on, and it's really only the social embarrassment of it all coming out that either
gets them to leave or simply provides them a social opportunity to leave if they have wanted to leave for years already. Divorce laws make it an
opportune time to leave of course.
These days it's more true to say it's a political rip cord. It's a string that can be pulled when it's time to get rid of you and they want a
convenient excuse to provide a little cover for the press. This way, the press doesn't have to talk as much about Benghazi and his open clash with
Obama, which is the obvious reason he's leaving now. They were going to pull it and he beat them to the punch, or he was given the option of
resigning before they did and took it.

Yeah except look what others have done with the CIA director job title on their business card.
Allen Dulles shagged Queen Frederica of Greece.
