I worked for Gen Petraeus and was and was able to sit in on his daily morning briefings for a month in Iraq back during my 07/08 deployment/ The man was brilliant. The most capable and intelligent leader I ever saw.
He has been a true Patriot and dedicated his LIFE to the country.
He made an extreme lapse of judgement and has resigned. I am dissapointed in him, but it does not diminish the great things he did in the past in service to his country.
At least he had the Honor to resign and admit his extreme mistake.
