    CIA director Gen. Petraeus resigns over affair

    He claims his resignation is due to an extramarital affair. Why didn't he just resign and attribute it to the end of Obama's 1st term?

    like the Benghazi incident that Obama wanted to keep under wraps until the election was over? or that Iran shot at an unarmed US drone before the election?

    Well, THIS is interesting...

    NBC News is reporting that according to law enforcement officials, the FBI is looking into Petraeus' biographer for improperly trying to access his e-mail.

    Re: CIA director Gen. Petraeus resigns over affair

    According to CNN, Obama kind of tried to talk him out of resigning.

    I'm thinking 'rumors' regarding Hillary resigning have been kicking around for about a year now, haven't they?

    School: University of Wyoming / Height: Mucho Grande / Stats are for losers
    Pros: Josh Allen is one of the best prospects in recent years. His arm strength makes Superman cry like the baby he is. He would be the perfect fit in a place like Buffalo where it has never once stopped snowing or had winds under 30 mph (according to the national media).
    Cons: Josh Allen is one of the worst prospects in recent years. If you were unaware, his accuracy is really bad. He also suffers from poor decision making which is reflected in his haircut.
    Pro Comparison: Josh Allen is equivalent to playing your drunk friend in Madden. One play, he lofts a screen pass over the running back's head out of bounds. The next play he throws a perfect 50 yard pass into triple coverage with one eye open asking "which team am I".

    Depending on who he was having an affair with, this could become a big deal. Honey pots are a thing.

    Retired Lieutenant-General Roméo Dallaire was blunt in his assessment.

    “I wouldn’t touch Mali with a 10-foot pole,” he told me in fall 2016 after returning from a fact-finding trip to Africa with Defence Minister, Harjit Sajjan.
