Somebody explain to me why Petraeus has resigned.
OK, he had an affair. So what? That's his business and his wife's business (and his girlfriend and her husband's businesses, I guess). But how does that affect the CIA?
It was an affair a) with a woman who was b) of the age of majority and c) consenting and d) apparently not a spy. I don't get why he had to resign and why Prez O accepted his resignation. In Europe, this would get a yawn.
The Americans really need to develop better sex scandals.
Update: it's now clear why Petraeus was running those 10 k's in the Afghan hills every day. He had to stay in shape for multiple extramarital boinking. Happy Veteran's Day, General.
