Director of CIA Resigns Over Extramarital Affair

General David Patraeus

(CNN) –

David Petraeus has resigned as director of the CIA.

In a statement issued Friday, he said: ” After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours. This afternoon, the President graciously accepted my resignation.”
