CIA Director David Petraeus resigation

David H. Petraeus, the director of the Central Intelligence Agency and a former four-star general, resigned from the CIA on Friday after an FBI investigation discovered evidence that Petraeus was involved in an extramarital affair.

Congressional officials announced that Petraeus had an affair with Paula Broadwell, a West Point graduate who served in the military for 15 years and who co-authored a biography of Petraeus called “All In: The Education of General David Petraeus.”

Petraeus submitted his resignation to President Barack Obama, saying: “After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours.”
