    What? The CIA exactly violated the orders to let the 30+ Americans and others there die and sent in what few guys the CIA could get in there, thus preventing those deaths replacing that with on 4, including the 2 Seals. Saving those lives but losing their own was in direct contradiction of orders. The attack and lack of response can't be blamed on the CIA, but the lack of those that were supposed to die not dying is.

    We should take him at his word that it was an extra-marital affair why he resigned, but this is #3 removed who disagreed with or who agency/people contradicted the Presidents "we can't do anything, stand down and don't wake me because I've got a trip to Vegas tomorrow" executive commands - a General, an Admiral and now the head of the CIA.

    Coincidentally of course.

    Yep, four minutes for the first conspiracy theory to be hatched.
    This is the head of the CIA, conspiracy is in his job description. So, you're supposing that the head of one of the world's top spy agencies is A) too stupid to avoid having affairs and B) not good enough at his job to keep it under wraps.

    Not satisfactory for me. I'd just as soon see the whole agency resign. Close up shop. Board up the windows.

    What I think is that a guy like Petraeus is NOT going to shame himself, destroy his 37-year-old marriage, and wreck his distinguished career to cover anyone's ass.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    Perhaps your sarcasm detector has a virus in the software.

    Yes, as we've established, getting impeached is no big deal.
