David Petraeus resigns from his position, citing extramarital affair. Interesting timing to say the least. Just days after the election and days before he is scheduled to testify before Congress on Benghazi.
It is now being reported that Petearus will NOT testify before Congress, how transparent.
In a letter released to the CIA work force on Friday afternoon, Petraeus disclosed the affair, and wrote: “Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours.”
President Obama “graciously accepted my resignation,” he wrote.
Petraeus was appointed CIA director in April 2011, replacing Leon Panetta, who moved to the Pentagon to become defense secretary.
