The threat of a looming financial
hardship is how President Barack Obama began his first national news conference
after re-election. But it was the imploding military soap opera sex scandal
that drew the first media question.
Retired U.S. Army Lieutenant General
Russel Honore has commanded hundreds of soldiers and has served alongside
thousands in his 37 years in the military. He said he "grew up" in
the army with former CIA Director David Petraeus, who later became a four star
general. Honore said he would have never suspected Petraeus to be
"I'm totally surprised because
it's not the character of the man I came to know and respect. He has always
presented himself as a photogenic warrior," Honore said.
The decorated soldier resigned on
Friday citing an affair with his biographer Paula Broadwell. All while the FBI
launched an investigation into the killings of a U.S. Ambassador and three
Americans in Benghazi, Libya.
"It's amazing how it happens.
That's what made this a real disaster as opposed as inconvenience of timing.
It's bed. When you do something stupid you are expected to take responsibility
for it you're expected to take responsibility for it and that's what he's done
at this point."
Honore said if investigators
learn Petraeus was in uniform while the extramarital affair took place, he
could be called back to active duty or face a reduction in rank, meaning he
probably would not face jail time but will be charged under the uniform code of
"People already know he's held
his soldiers to a high standard and many of them have lost rank or have had to
leave the Army because of an illegal affair."
As for Petraeuses role in the
FBI's investigation, the retired army general believes the former CIA
director's testimony is critical in finding out what happened overseas.
"I think there is critical
information that he knows and that people who work for him know that will
dispel any concern of the American people or people in our government in the
congress who are held or hold public servants accountable that everything was
done that could've been done to have prevented the deaths of this ambassador."
