    On the sudden resignation of Gen. David Petraeus over an adulterous affair, political pundit David Brooks lamented that we couldn't have a more "French attitude" toward such human peccadilloes. Indeed, the CIA's third and longest serving director, Allen Dulles, was a notorious serial adulterer who reportedly had sex with the Queen of Greece in his office. So, why drum one of America's most brilliant generals out of office in the bat of an eye?

    A most interesting take on the resignation by an ex-diplomat @ http://jameslbrunologspot.com/2012/11/sex-and-cia-abrupt-fall-of-gen-david.html&r=keyword&word=sex

    If Petreaus hadn't seen subpenaed to testify before the senate, we'd never have heard of this.

    The obama royal regime is systematically removing all of the top military leadership.

    I'm outside the usa main stream media so I have only seen a splattering of articles. Is there evidence that he let some secret information slip or are we really running him out of town for an affair?

    The FBI determined no crime was committed so this is all about stopping him from testifying. Now it's about preventing John R. Allen from testifying too.

    Bullshit.

    He wasn't even the focus of the investigation.

    And Republicans knew about it first.

    what's the problem? Even a spy likes a little strange pussy now and then. It wasn't a problem for James Bond.

    The purpose of the investigation was to manufacture an incident that could be used to prevent Petreaus from testifying. Otherwise, just let the investigation go on and put his ass in the witness chair.
