The only people who know if there is more to Petraeus' resignation are the administration, the other woman, the general himself and perhaps those in the inner circle. It is a tragedy when someone of the General's stature succumbs to the desires of another younger woman and throws away a 37 year marriage and an honorable career, in both the military and as a civilian. This man was respected by Republicans and Democrats alike and now he steps down from his powerful position in disgrace. Who knows what the back story really is, but I would venture to guess there will be a powerful book and perhaps a movie in the future. It is a sad, sad story, for sure.
