Gen Petraeus submitted his resignation letter, not over Libya but because of an extra marital affair he had. He has been married 37 years. This comes right on the heels of the Llbya hearings next week, but the word is he will still be called to testify.
what a waste of a great military career....a real shame,very disappointed
now they are saying he wont be called to testify...the timing on this smells....the reason he is resigning makes one lift an eyebrow too
I am not denying the timing smells but do you really believe he would resign for an affair he didn't have?

3. why didnt he resign before the election
I am not saying he didnt have an affair....but a man in his high profile position doesnt make sense
This post wouldnt have surprised me if it were made by the OP, Gman, UB or the like. Not very long ago you seemed concerned about your credibility and objectivity

This is a national heo who has served bravely & honorably for years and amusingly been a hero to the "Republican can do no wrong apoligists"crowd. What are you suggesting that he is participating in the Fox created coverup of alleged heinous wrongdoing in the 9-11 embassy terror attack where Fox would like us to think that Obama had our people stand down when Fox would have you believe that we could have easily intervened and prevented it You are aware that so far everyone[CIA Pentagon NSC White House 4 Star Generalsetc} who could be in a position to know the situation has called BS on Fox
Or are you implying that he is faking the affair
What smells fishy to me is that this kinda resembles when Colin Powell, your ilks last Patriotic hero & icon got demoted to a bum & traitior and thrown under the bus when he endorsed Obama
Do you people actually believe every piece of tripe that Fox throws against the wall and hope it sticks. How many times will that Fair & Balanced group make a fool out of you people before you wake up
Did he have an affair with a man or a women?
Why would he not be called to testify? He resigns a couple days before a hearing (after the election) where he would have to tell the truth and now he doesn't have to testify, and some people think this doesn't raise an eyebrow?
Dont know if he will be called to testify, but if he is this wont get him out of it. He can still be subpeonaed.

That matters to people who are concerned with facts

I am just in shock to be quite honest, Petraeus was/is a genuine American hero
