He cites an extramarital affair. I’m guessing in reality it’s the fact that his affair was discovered. Obviously, engaging in an affair poses an serious security risk for anyone with the CIA, let alone the director himself. Now we just has to ask is, for how long? Jeez. Really amazing how many things were being held back only to be dropped down us just after the election. We truly have gone the rabbit hole.

Friday that CIA director David Petraeus has resigned from the CIA, citing an extramarital affair.
NBC’s Andrea Mitchell said the resignation was submitted in a letter dated Friday and was accepted by the White House.
In a letter, Petraeus noted that he had been married for 37 years and had exercised “extremely poor judgment’ in conducting an extramarital affair.
Petraues took over as head of the CIA in September of 2011 following his tour as head of allied forces in Afghanistan.
And now this: Petraeus biographer, Paula Broadwell, is being investigated for “improperly trying to access his email”
