News of CIA Director David Petraeus resignation came as a shock today as rumors spread on Twitter and across the internet that the four-star general had an extramarital affair. General Petraeus, serving more than 35 years in the United States Army, submitted his letter of resignation to President Obama just days before he was set to testify in the Benghazi hearings on Capitol Hill. The Senate Intelligence Committee says he will no longer testify--
President Obama accepted the resignation and said his “thoughts and prayers” were with General Petraeus and his wife.
