Another one bites the dust under Obama's bus,
falls on sword for the administration.

They are saying the reason for his resignation is having an affair; but is it really?

I think perhaps this reason is being used; but I also think that it is not the real reason. I think that perhaps (behind closed doors; under the table; so to speak) an agreement was made.

I am curious as to what the real reason is.

and why does Patraeus come out and volunteer that its due to an affair and why resign at all over an affair in an administration and party which celebrates lies and infidelity (anyone Remember Hillary's husband)?


They gave him an offer he could not refuse?

The military has rules and doctrines governing extramarital affairs and consequences. I wouldn't see why the Director of the CIA should be exempt to similar rules.

my conspiracy senses are tingling. how many rats have been jumping ship, or making preperations to jump? i believe holder is contemplating to. could just be because he caught caught cheating or something embarrassing about his life is about to come to light, or something big this way comes, and they are starting to head to their bunkers.

From his letter:


Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours.


So he's leaving the CIA because having an affair is unacceptable.

Yeah. OK!



Ever heard of a Honey Trap?

For a member of any intelligence or security service engaging in affairs of this nature there is a real risk of blackmail and spying.

While it can be viewed as personal life and not related to the job, the business of government will not see it that way. Many of the public will see it in exactly the same way too.

Next will likely be Hillary IMO.

I won't be pleased until the house cleaning goes to the very top...

That's what they are trying to avoid.

I think he was asked to step down by Obama after that press conference. He basically stated that Obama threw the guys under the bus with total understanding of what he was doing beforehand. It was sort of out there for someone serving at Obama's whim. I didn't expect him to resign before the election was over, but it was sort of a done deal IMHO at that point.

Affairs ?

LOL didn't stop Clinton did it?

So yeah something smells here I do not buy this excuse more apt to think Benghazi related.

i'll add further to this and say that Patraeus is about as close to an Eisenhower as we've had since.

what was it he 'warned' us about back in the day. :shk:

I dont get what having an affair has to do with the job.
One has nothing to do with the other so why resign?

Blackmail?

Having an affair as any top government official is usually a no-no.

Let's step back, the Right Wing brutally forced Anthony Weiner out as a Representative for texting a picture of himself in his underwear to another adult.

But now, a lot of them are saying that an affair doesn't matter and isn't a valid reason for resigning?

Short term memories.

Anyone see the movie Deep Impact? In the beginning The Secretary of Treasury resigned over an affair. Turns out it wasn't an affair, just a cover story for something mind-blowing that they didn't want the public to know about.

Maybe this is a cover up for something much bigger.

You beat me to the punch.
For both to be bailing right after a re-election smells like rats abandoning ship.
This could be big trouble ahead.

Why are people surprised cabinet level positions will change in Obama's second term?

They always do.

If it is an affair, what would worry me is the possibility that it was a foreign intelligence agency that sent in that women to have sex with him and blackmail him for information.

Just like in this case in China not too long ago

Agreed, perhaps an internal ethics violation, standards of conduct. He most likely will have been grilled by internal affairs through a lengthy process only to be fired later. He made short work of it to spare family more grief.

There may be other underlying issues as well I'm sure.
