    I dunno, resigning over an affair doesn't seem like much of a face saving move, exactly. So I'm sort of inclined to believe it.

    So what WOULD have been a "face saving" move, exactly? Not sure I follow your reasoning.

    No, I mean the opposite thing of the thing you just said.

    probably not. but there's always an excuse touted by the media. generally whatever that is is a lie.

    I highly doubt it. The admin didn't want him testifying about Benghazi.

    Yes, because the administration can block congress from calling up Petreaus. Or wait, is your contention that Petreaus can, as a private citizen, avoid testifying before Congress? Do you know what happens when you do that?

    Methinks yer conspiracy hat is working too hard on this issue.

    Benghazi was an attack on the United States not a CT or a scandal by the United States!

    Get a grip people! If a prosecutor wanted to subpoena anyone they could regardless of a resignation or an affair.
