Petraeus Links
Published on November 12, 2012 by Sara Foss

I know it's a serious matter, but I find the story of General Petraeus' downfall pretty hilarious. Perhaps I am just a cruel person. One of things that makes this story so funny is how heartbroken his admirers in the media are. They seemed to think Petraeus was some kind of god, and that he could do no wrong. Thankfully, this little scandal will kill Petraeus' presidential ambitions, and we won't have to listen to starstruck reporters describe his genius and integrity ever again. 

Anyway, here are two of my favorite Petraues links.

This one, by Spencer Ackerman at Wired, describes how he and other reporters became enamored with Petraeus.

This one, by Michael Hastings, explains how Petraeus was always a fraud.

This one, by Jane Mayer at the New Yorker, ponders some of the story's unanswered questions.
