Finally a note about a “news” story which is currently receiving much media attention, but I am ignoring. David Petraeus resigned from his post as Director of the CIA, citing an extramarital affair. I posted a link to the story on November 9th, but have not posted anything since then. Why? Because we don’t know anything new of value. Who he had the affair with, what she looks like, why she was sending threatening e-mails… none of this matters. He did the right thing in resigning, because, as we were taught in World War II, “Loose lips sink ships,” (no innuendo there…) and he had the most intimate knowledge of many of the US’ most secret missions. That is the story, that’s all there is to the story, conspiracy theories aside, and that’s all I’m going to report on the story. There are many more open questions about what actually happened in Benghazi, and that’s what we should focus on.
