And who do you think will be put into his place? That is very important.

Sen Feinstein's take on this, with confirmation that the former CIA Director won't need to testify at the hearings next week:


usnews.nbcnews.com...

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, told NBC News that Petraeus’s personal mistake should not have led to his departure.
“I would have stood up for him,” Feinstein said in response to his indiscretion. “I wanted him to continue. He was good, he loved the work and he had a command of intelligence issues second to none.”
Feinstein said she respects Obama’s decision to accept the Petraeus resignation, but wishes he hadn’t.
She also said Petraeus will not need to testify at Benghazi hearings she is chairing next week.


Stood up for him?? Does that make everything okay then? Holy cow she makes you feel that she's the mistress.

I don't understand why he doesn't have to testify. The guy cheats on his wife and then gets a pass from the Benghazi attacks. I don't get it?

If you confess it is no longer a security risk, is it?

The administration got all their little duckies in a row.

Petraeus resigns, and now does not have to testify.

Coverup!

Which means those families to those 4 Americans will not get any answers or closure.

Another win for the most corrupt administration in Us history.

They were going to kidnap that dude, then do a prisoner swap that normally the American people wouldn't want. They weren't supposed to kill the dude.

Someone said it was about the blind shiek..I dunno. Something like that makes sense though.

Most Americans are unfamiliar with the geography and think Tripoli was really far off from there. They think that this was a widespread riot over that movie that was all over the middle east that day.

The news agencies would help the story along if they would show some maps and a timeline.

They won't, they prefer people keep throwing his poor wife under the bus about her looks.
This place is sinful...man, that woman is 50 or 60 years old. She should not HAVE to compete with Internet porn stars these idots know for people's approval.

Micheal Morrell is going to be in charge for now, if that's what you mean.

2nd line

With what he KNOWS - you think his resignation gives him some sort of IMMUNITY from black mail?

People really buy that 'the leader of the CIA has to be of fine moral character' -beat on the chest- nationalistic -baloney?

I can't buy that reasoning. He doesn't get some sort of 'brain wipe because he leaves office' rendering him useless to the enemy.

I just mean if he'd already been blackmailed, then he was technically negotiating with terrorists.

A bad joke that clearly did not go over

Fox News is now saying Petraeus may be 'compelled' to testify. Isn't that just another word for 'subpoena'?

Shows what a patoot he is too - this can't be about THAT. You don't get married to a CIA agent and expect total truth about EVERYTHING. More like anything, lol - an extramarital affair would NOT bring a long term marriage like that down, no freaking way - nor would it make a wife demand her husband leave office.


No, but an extramarital affair will destroy your security clearance. It will be revoked faster than you saying that you've been spying for someone. Sex is one of the biggest ways that people were turned during the Cold War, and it worked a lot more often than it didn't.

But but but, Neo..... This can't be a coverup!!

The CIA has an Honor Code and by dangy they stick to it!! You can't cover something up when you have an honor code.

No links yet, watching the news and it appears that CIA Director Petraeus has submitted and the Presidnet has accepted his resignation from the post..

No details yet..
I just saw that too. Seems like he wanted out, and the reason he gave is a good way of stepping down without a lot of questions.

I really doubt Petraeus had an affair with anyone, and he hasn't shown any reason to cheat on his wife either. (in fact he didn't want to deploy anymore because he didn't like being away from her) Now that he lives at home it seems odd that he would cheat on her.

Either he got some kind of Secret Promotion (not likely) or he just wanted to get out because of the attacks last september (most likely).


Agreed here - the idea that the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency resigned because of an affair is absolutely ludicrous. If he was being blackmailed and told his wife would be sent video of him with his mistress if he didn't step down, then it might make sense...except then we wouldn't hear that it was because of an affair.

Patreus was told to resign for some other reason, and this is the cover story. It just makes no sense that he would resign because of an affair. Not buying it.

General Petraeus has every right to be concerned for his life as well - It is not every day that a CIA director is murdered but lets re-call the murder of CIA Director William Colby.............I am sure that General Petraeus has "total recall" of that unpleasant episode.

If you are at THE TOP and you already have had ACCESS and INVOLVEMENT in everything, why would you NEED a security clearance?

What you are saying is definitely true - if you're a grunt pushing documents or you work at Lockheed on a new aircraft and you are privy to seeing or handling secrets- but these people MAKE the secrets.

Nope, not buying THAT at all.
