Drudge Sirens: Gen. David Petraeus Resigns CIA Due To Spying ... Between The Sheets
CIA Director David Petraeus hassubmitted his resignation, admitting that he'd had an extramarital affair and had exercised "extremely poor judgement." Petraeus is likely to be replaced on an interim basis by deputy CIA director Mike Morrell, according to Administration sources eager to reassure Americans that the CIA will continue to send killer robots to rain death upon the nation's enemies.
A Twitter rumor that Petraeus had been having an affair with a member of Senator-elect Elizabeth Warren's staff is untrue; the reality is that Petraeus's wife, Holly, had worked with Warren, who while setting up the federal Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, appointed Holly Petraeus to head that agency's unfortunately named "Office of Servicemember Affairs."
Reaction from the wingnut press has been muted so far, although readers of the Stupidest Man On the Internet were quick to speculate that Barack Obama knew of the affair and blackmailed Petraeus to do nothing to save the lives of the Benghazi consulate staff. We await further thoughtful analysis from Pam Geller and Jerome Corsi.
