    Default Petraeus resigns as director of the CIA.

    CIA director quits over affair - World News, Breaking News - Independent.ie

    He resigned after admitting that he had an extramarital affair. I thought that he was a decent person. I never imagined that he would commit adultery.

    Once considered a possible GOP VP candidate, or even a President.

    The "character issue" will sink him now.

    Over here, you'd get a doubling in your government pension for that.

    I think there is more to this than meets the eye. Very few Americans resign for having an Affair.

    Edi: It could be harassment, a subordinate or given his position as CIA Directors, a compromising of some kind of information. Of course, it's all speculation.
