When he's the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, and could, thru his inability to control his libido, subject himself to Blackmail. That's when.1 more thing. he only resigned...because he got caught. Suppose it turns out this woman was a foreign agent and Blackmailed him into giving up our overseas operatives? or our strategic defense plans, or anything else of vital national defense. That's the issue here. Men like Patreaus have violated their Marriage oaths ad infinitum. This man was held up as a National treasure, a graduate of West Point, the bastion of all decency,pride, honor.. The Best of the Best. This is way,way beyond a man straying from his marriage. And you can BET the Russians and Chinese knew ALL about this.
