Ah, come on! The Russians have used women to get at our military men for many, many decades for one reason: because it works.
So General Petraeus is only human. This just underlines the fact that working in the Obama Administration is dangerous.
“only human” bothers me a great deal. It is as if we are so lowly that the primacy G-d bestowed upon man has been rendered meaningless and ‘human’ has become an excuse for all wrongdoing in the world when it SHOULD BE the exact opposite. Human as an excuse is actually SUBhuman because HUMAN aspires to be MORE, not less; BETTER, not worse. In G-d’s Image. It means something.
