CIA Director David Petraeus resigned as head of the leading U.S. spy agency on Friday, saying he had engaged in an extramarital affair and acknowledging he "showed extremely poor judgment."
In a letter to the CIA workforce, Petraeus, 60, said he met with President Barack Obama at the White House on Thursday and asked "to be allowed, for personal reasons, to resign from my position."

Just tell us how long this has been going on.
Subpoena, subpoena, subpoena! Do not let this pathetic, cowardly Obamaneuver prevent Patraeus from testifying. Haul his a** up to Capital Hill and wring the truth out of him.
What a coincidence!
So, he cannot be called for questioning about Benghazi now?
Obama needs to be IMPEACHED!
Sean I hate to tell you this, but that investigation will be run by Tom Sawyer, one of the greatest whitewashers in history.
We will get no truth from Congress.
Well, now we'll have plenty of time.
Betraeus. Then run away like a little chickensh!+ POS. Strip him of everything. Take it all. Paint him bright yellow and make him roam the earth, homeless, penniless, until the end of his days.
Hmmm... Hopefully he got sick of the blackmail that was going on to keep him shut up. Perhaps coming right out and admitting it was a way to make it stop ? Probably wishful thinking.
Oh, he can be compelled to testify, via subpoena, if the Pubs have the nerve to do it!
Petraeus was dead to me after he attacked our right of Freedom of Speech
Please...don’t mistake anything I might say for optimism over getting to the truth.....
Isn’t it really ironic that, back under Bush, the Dims used the “Betrayus” in that NYT ad unfairly and undeservedly -— and now, it looks like it might actually fit!
Interesting that Hillary, Patreaus and Panetta, all the youtube video liars, who tried to cover up the true nature of the Libian murders, are stepping down as Congress gears up for it’s investigation.
They were all involved in putting the radical Muslim Brotherhood in power in the Middle East. That means they helped Dear Reader set up the bomb and now are evacuating before it blows up in Israel’s lap and they are called upon by House to lie some more.
Since when do Dems care about men whoring around behind their wives’ backs? They proved their sluthood when they donned kneepads for BJ Clinton. So I think the general is hightailing it to help in the cover-up ongoing around Libya and arms running to Al Queda rebels in Syria.
The second term of this foreigner is going to be... I can only think of cuss words.
2. Jarrett says "you either lie to congress or Ill tell the world about your affair
3.Patraeus resigns and tells the world he had an affair.
4. He now has no gun to his head and can still be called to testify and will.
If he did this just so he could avoid having to testify before Congress, then he has forfeited his place in Valhalla and knows it. I’m hoping that he did this so that he could testify. Let’s see what happens.
1. Petraeus was going to spill the beans and do the honorable thing and tell the truth about what happened at Benghazi. 0bama gave him a choice, resign or end up like Jimmy Hoffa.
2. Petraeus refused to cover for Hussein and the Beast, so he resigned and may avoid testifying.
3. Petraeus refuses to serve under a traitor like 0bama, so he resigns.
4. 0bama can't risk anyone with a shred of honor being in that position, and now he has "more flexibility" and the purge has begun, so 0bama can consolidate his dictatorial powers.
There is so much fraud and deceit surrounding 0bama and his regime, there's absolutely no way I'm taking their explanation at face value.
He has less protection now, right? As a civilian, they could call him now, right?
