I worked, many rungs down, for General Petraeus when I was an E-5, a Petty Officer Second Class. At some point in life, you stop having heroes and you start having mentors and teachers. And although I never had personal contact with the General, he was still a hero of mine.
Today the news hits that CIA director David Petraeus is resigning over an extramarital affair. I’m stunned. There has to be more to this story, which may or may not come out.
This has been a hell of a week.
