    What a terrible dissapointment. And what a tangled mess when one chooses to decieve.

    Presidents John.F.Kennedy and Bill Clinton both did it. King's, Queen's, and Baronets
    have done it. And even your best buddy does it. And therefore I am reminded of the
    legendary and late Cole Porter's lyrics:

    Birds do it,
    Bees do it,
    Even educated fleas do it,
    Let's do it, Let's Fall in Love!

    Surely and tactiful, even the former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency,
    General David Patraeus can do it, and has admitted to doing it. And by all accounts,
    if I had, had the opportunity to meet someone as attractive, intelligent, beautiful, and sexy
    as Paula Broadwell, I probably would have DONE IT as well! NB. Respectfully and tactfully.

    Long live Mr.Cole Porter!

    It's interesting to see the response of the democrats to extramarital affairs: Kick Patraeus out; worship Bill Clinton.

    He derailed his own career knowing history of Generals and Politicians falling off their horse over the centuris. He not only was taught that in the Military Academy and through all his career in the military, he taught it and led by example over those years. He wrote evaluations for enlisted and officers over those years with that type information included and evaluated. He signed off on administrative and military justice hearings were this type of conduct moved people to Fort Leavenworth or to the civilian world, with either a court martial or non-judicial punishment. Some of those judgements impacted those people's lives forever.

    He didn't live in a world that was lax on being tough on people for this type of behavior unbecoming and officer, especially with intelligence impact.

    The top person in the CIA falling like this as a political appointee with the potential of blackmail and other forms of subversion is reprehensible for a person of this position.

    He should meet the fate of those of the intelligence world with even more of an impact. How can he be a leader and was just caught. He didn't stop relationships until caught. Broken sword?
