“***She said he was unsure of himself sometimes. She said he was concerned about the publics perception of him.*** Sounds like he was the perfect candidate for emotional entanglement and then blackmail.”

Gen. David Petraeus, who has stepped down from his position as director of the CIA over an extramarital affair, said this week that he screwed up big-time, a close friend of the generals told CNN.
You know, he expressed deep regret for what happened, the damage he had done and the pain he had caused his family, said Ret. Col. Peter Mansoor, who served with Petraeus in Iraq. He called his action morally reprehensible and said, in his words, I screwed up big-time. And boy did he ever.
Mansoor, speaking on CNNs Out Front Tuesday evening, said Petraeus loved his position at the CIA.
He really enjoyed his job at the CIA, it was the best job in the world, as far as he was concerned, Mansoor told CNNs Erin Burnett. He had a good relationship with the president and national security team, and he threw that all away for due to a personal failing. He is very, very down right now.
Do we know who put her up or OKd the writing of the book. Sure doesn’t sound like it was his idea.
