Friday that CIA director David Petraeus has resigned from the CIA, citing an extramarital affair.
NBC’s Andrea Mitchell said the resignation was submitted in a letter dated Friday and was accepted by the White House.
In a letter, Petraeus noted that he had been married for 37 years and had exercised “extremely poor judgment’ in conducting an extramarital affair.
Well. I didn’t see THAT one coming.
But you’ll notice the most open, honest, and transparent administration in history sat on this news for 6 days, until after the election was over.
D’oh! Today is Friday. Been thinking all day today is Thursday. But still, something stinks here. The timing, given that Congress is going to be holding hearings on Benghazi very soon, is fishy. Guess he won’t be testifying now…
