    1st, the guy is 60 and the chick is 40 and hot as hell. I'm sure he enjoyed tapping that very much.

    2nd, there's so much pretentiousness in maintaining a public image that it leaves little room for a person to be human. I don't think someone cheating on his wife is grounds for dismissal/resignation. I get that it reflects poor character, but I still don't think that makes him a poorer employee than the next guy who simply hides his flaws better. I think it's naive to think that an authority figure's public image is a very accurate portrayal of their true character.

    And Obama's administration hid a bunch of things before the election was over? Well no shit. Find me an honest and successful politician. I highly doubt Romney would be much better. Don't get me wrong, I completely agree that these cover ups were wrong. But, you're surprised? Like you didn't expect it?

They found out it was the lady Petreus was having an affair with so they then checked him out to confirm it was indeed him. It was an affair he had and ended prior to becoming the CIA chief.

    P.S. The woman he had an affair with was his biographer.

    P.S.S. B*****s be crazy.
    They would've hushed it up to avoid scandal if it was just that simple methinks. I think he pissed someone off at the pentagon
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    I'm sorry, I don't understand the question. Can you clarify?

    “Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft
