Petraeus Resigns As CIA Director Because of "Affair"

Let the conspiracy theorizing begin! Legit reason?
By acknowledging an extramarital affair, Mr. Petraeus, 60, was confronting a sensitive issue for a spy chief. Intelligence agencies are often concerned about the possibility that agents who engage in such behavior could be blackmailed for information.
Here is an article on the woman he supposedly had the affair with: Paula Broadwell, the woman who wrote his biography.

It's all plausible enough... but just a plain old heterosexual affair?  So BORING and non-scandalous, IMO.

I'd bet money she seduced him. After
all, selling books about boring Dick Cheney's thug buddies isn't easy these days, so what's a sleazy woman to do to jazz up the subject of her
PR client?

P.S. Your readers must really love the Capchta hoop.

When former CIA chief David Petraeus enraged the Israel lobby

What Foxman and other Israel lobbyists understood correctly was that Petraeus was articulating a view that is increasingly common within the US establishment, but is an absolute taboo when it comes to stating it publicly: that US “interests” and Israeli “interests” are not identical, and that Israel might be a strategic burden, rather than an asset to the United States.

Correction: The General's girl is actually tho eldest Middleton girl.

If I had heard her voice, I would have recognized her aristocratic British accent as being clearly not an aristocratic Orlando accent.

Must have been something I ate.
So solly.
