    The Generals have protocol and requirements of their job to let them know their bounds of duty and when it is out of bounds. Both General's know what those standards are. They were susceptible to all kinds of scrutiny from foreign and inside agencies for their pass out of bounds. These Generals know of the potential repercussions and not from mortars or artillery shells. They have been briefed and receive training on these issues and do officer and enlisted reports for their subordinates on these types of topics and affairs due to national security. Whether it gets to that level of national security depends on the situation. However, the potential for national security issues is always there, no matter how small the invasion into that area of operations.

    These Generals found out there is no such thing as a small sin. They had infractions and our country will pay those for them but our prestige and power has been impacted, not just their careers and especially families. Time for broken swords?

    I guess we all forgot about the interview the General gave Rolling Stone Magazine. Sounds like this is payback. Every corrupt deed needs a fall guy. Petraus is now getting his for not giving a favorable interveiw way back when. Don't you just love Washington?
