David Petraeus Resigns CIA Post, Admits Extramarital Affair

The Daily Banter Headline Grab. From Huff Post:

Gen. David Petraeus has resigned as director of the Central Intelligence Agency, MSNBC reports.

MSNBC host Andrea Mitchell broke the news Friday afternoon, reading Petraeus’ resignation letter on air.

Petraeus wrote in the letter to the CIA staff on Friday that he had gone to the White House on Thursday and asked the president “for personal reasons” to resign.

“After being married for more than 37 years I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair,” Petraeus wrote in his letter. “Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as a leader of an organization such as ours.”

Petraeus said that the president accepted his resignation on Thursday.
