The director of the Central Intelligence Agency is supposed to be the United States’—if not the world’s—top sleuth. His agency should be the one uncovering dark secrets. But what happened over the weekend is a far cry from this stereotype. Instead, the FBI revealed General David Petraeus’ secret—that he was having an affair with his biographer. Because of this, he resigned.
Graduate student Bobby is amused that Petraeus was not able conceal information. "We would expect him to do better at his game," but concedes that the confession and resignation were "somewhat" admirable. Of course he cannot set a good example by his betrayal, and he won't enjoy the public trust anymore.
