Here's what's surreal to me...
I watched both Casino Royale, and then Quantum of Solace before going to see Skyfall. James Bond films, right? Well, these days, there are more concerns over cyber-security from 007 than we get out of the actual people in our real-world intelligence communities. The idea of spies going after babes close to the director of the CSI or high-ranking generals for intel seems like it's more like something out of Broccoli's world of Bond... but there it is.

- the best there is at what i do -
It’s regrettable that the C.I.A. has to lose somebody of Petraeus’ caliber over something like this which has nothing to do with how the man did his job (and by all accounts he was doing a good job).
Now I wonder if Obama will put another military man in the top spot or will he promote from within the C.I.A. this time.
For the record, personal affairs can affect one's job performance. You're really living in a fantasy world if you say otherwise.
The instinct of people in institutions like the military and the CIA who have just been punched hard by the FBI in areas they believe should have been off limits to them is to punch back.
What was democrats instinct to the GOP looking into who Clinton's been screwing? Punch back at the side who they saw as punching their guy and find GOP members in Congress who have been having affairs and out them.
We are beyond the realm of thinking about what is good for the nation at this point and into the realm where emotions like revenge and payback are what matters. Hell, even those thinking logically are going to be out for payback simply to tell the FBI and others for future reference you look at where our leaders are putting their dicks we will do the same to you.
Expect the FBI to hit back as well after being struck... at this point I don't think even the WH can stop the circular firing squad that is going to start.
whoa, some of the hyperbole in this thread
by the way, Allen was already on his way out as far as Afghanistan, this may just quicken the change.
There is no stopping the payback at this point both out of revenge and for the CIA and the military to make sure the FBI doesn't f**k with them in that way ever again.
