General Petraeus

I have a great deal of respect for General Petraeus and I agree with the consensus that his situation is very sad.

However, there is one thing that confuses me.

Honor dictated that Petraeus had to resign because of the affair that he had with his biographer.

However, he did not resign until after his affair was exposed by the FBI.

  1. Many elected officials have survived the exposure of a sexual affair. If the issue is confined to a sexual affair I have little doubt that Petraeus could have survived as well. As Wayne’s post clearly emphasizes, honor, in this case, as a reason for resignation would require very tortured logic.
