Syneeda, How does it feel, being the only military officer to be prosecuted and sent to prison for committing adultery? Especially when high profile officers like General Patraeus get a simple slap on the wrist. I’m sure it wasn’t his self-admission that got him a “Sturges”, his knock-out lover most likely had something else on her prestigious Republican lover?

Anon, I view this as a sad and unfortunate case for the military, the CIA as well as for America. Although the General was highly decorated and respected, his unprofessional conduct could have potentially put the security of our county at risk. Because America is still at war, both abroad and at home (racially and economically) we don't have room for errors, which is probably why the General chose to submit his resignation. When you are as high ranking as a 4 Star General, you are suppose to set the bar and I'm sure the President will handle this situation as he sees fit. In the meantime, my prayers goes out to the General's wife and his family.

Since the FBI has known about this for a while, many wonder why everything waited until after the election for things to come out. Many people think there were politics involved in this as well. He's retired from the military, so there most certainly won't be any UCMJ action if that is even possible. Since his resignation has been accepted, nothing there either, and this comes just days before Petraeus was set to testify about the Benghazi attack and who know what when U.S. citizens were being killed.
