Timeline, national-security implications deserve a full airing.
The fact is, he has shown himself to be weak and vulnerable. Traits that disqualify him as a general, head of te CIA, and as a husband. I feel for those he has betrayed.
CIA is supposed to be good at covert affairs.
He was brought down by a cat fight.
More bad news for the obama regime that was buried until after the election.
It is not surprised to find out "Brand Petraeus" is just another empty suit who couldn't keep his pants on (i.e., an empty suit without pants), even for national security. As Sherman Alexie said last night, our CIA Director, the person responsible for our most important secrets, is using Gmail to conduct an extramarital affair? Really? To make matters worse, it made sense for this leadership god to try to keep the affair secret and keep his job. The politicians and military establishment used Brand Petraeus to convince us there was something noble about disastrous wars. In the end, Petraeus has been exposed as a hollowed-out soul running around without pants. How quickly he went from All In to All Out.
