Hmmm, I wonder who the woman is.

Here is Petraeus' resignation letter:

HEADQUARTERS Central Intelligence Agency 9 November 2012

Yesterday afternoon, I went to the White House and asked the President to be allowed, for personal reasons, to resign from my position as D/CIA. After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours. This afternoon, the President graciously accepted my resignation. As I depart Langley, I want you to know that it has been the greatest of privileges to have served with you, the officers of our Nation's Silent Service, a work force that is truly exceptional in every regard. Indeed, you did extraordinary work on a host of critical missions during my time as director, and I am deeply grateful to you for that. Teddy Roosevelt once observed that life's greatest gift is the opportunity to work hard at work worth doing. I will always treasure my opportunity to have done that with you and I will always regret the circumstances that brought that work with you to an end. Thank you for your extraordinary service to our country, and best wishes for continued success in the important endeavors that lie ahead for our country and our Agency. With admiration and appreciation, David H. Petraeus

Oh please, what a smoke screen. This is just cover for something else.

Please elaborate on what you think the cover may be?

The CIA is being raked on the coals over Libya right now. I'm certain it has more to do with him running away before Congress calls him to the stand.

If you're going to say it, say it.

This is the 2nd time today you have been on the fence.

If I am correct, they can still call him to the stand even if he resigns. This is not Ollie North all over again.

Just because he retires, it doesn't get him out of having to testify or being called to Congress.

Everything is a coverup to some people.
