In a letter submitted to President Obama today, November 9, 2012 Petraeus stated that he has exercised “extremely poor judgment” in conducting the affair. Petraeus has been married for over 37 years, and went on to say “I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours.” This afternoon, the President accepted his resignation.

In a letter obtained by NBC, Petraeus stated it had been “the greatest of privileges” to serve with the agency. He called it “a work force that is truly exceptional in every regard, and Indeed, you did extraordinary work on a host of critical missions during my time as director, and I am deeply grateful to you for that.”

Prior to Petraeus assuming the role as head of the CIA in September 2011, he had reached the rank of four-star general in the Army and was head of allied forces in Afghanistan.

According again to NBC News, Obama will have to nominate a replacement for the General who will most likely be Mike Morrell, deputy CIA director,
