A True Fallen Hero

General Petraeus is stepping down. Because he fucked a woman who is not his wife. A discovery made by the FBI, which apparently feels digging up dirt on people (and a government colleague for that matter!) is a significant part of its DoJ charter. When you do the math, you can easily reach the following conclusions: 1) if the FBI has no problem spying on the director of the CIA, it is certainly spying on ordinary citizens, and 2) in the eyes of the US administration and public, violating the terms of your marriage is far more serious than violating international law/the Geneva convention. Then again, this is hardly "news." Move along people, nothing to see here...
