Prediction: It will be years from now before we know why Petraeus resigned....

but it won't simply be the affair.

I sense that there's a lot of infighting over the direction of foreign policy.

4. Cheney had eight years to plant his folks in the military/NSA/CIA hierarchies...

And I'll bet not all of them are onboard with Arab Spring/Iranian sanctions game plan.

5. I've got this one.

He had to resign because he is incompetent.

His ego outgrew his influence and power. Read that to mean his partisan lies were no longer working.

6. Not sure about that. The right wing media pundits seem determined

to foolishly bring it all out.

7. LOL. I see more and more sensing what I'm sensing....

My bet?

Something about this struck me as odd:

1-star firing a public rebuke for decorated CO

The Navy fired the one-star commander of a carrier strike group patrolling the Arabian Sea on Oct. 27, a highly unusual removal that occurred amid an investigation of his leadership by the naval inspector general.

Rear Adm. Chuck Gaouette, head of the John C. Stennis Carrier Strike Group, was flown back to the U.S. amid this probe, said to be looking into reports that he exhibited “inappropriate leadership judgment,” according to a Navy official familiar with the case. A one-star former strike group commander is en route to assume command.

The firing marks a public rebuke for Gaouette, a decorated officer and winner of the Navy’s highest leadership award who took command of the strike group in April.

The news marks another sign of a tumultuous year for the Navy’s best and brightest, with Gaouette’s relief notching the Navy to a tally of 20 commanding officers fired for reasons ranging from lackluster leadership to misconduct and bullying. But Gaouette’s transfer is something more: the first time a deployed strike group boss has been sacked in nearly a decade.
