4. I always figured that the sex scandal that got Petraeus fired...

was largely manufactured to protect him from being fired for the incompetence displayed in Benghazi.

Politicians (or at least Republican politicians) can recover from sex scandals. Being fired for incompetence-especially when an ambassador dies-is a bit harder to bounce back from. Petraeus was the new Eisenhower for many Repubs. I think they still have hopes of resurrecting him.
