Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be)

"The Man Who Knew Too Much"
 General David Petraeus

(CNN) -- Admitting to an extramarital affair, David Petraeus stepped down as director of the CIA on Friday in a surprise move that shocked the intelligence community just days after President Barack Obama was re-elected.

     According to a U.S. official, the FBI had a tip that Petraeus was involved with his biographer, Paula Broadwell, and investigated the alleged affair to determine whether it posed a security risk. The FBI was not investigating Petraeus for wrongdoing. The concern was that he could potentially be blackmailed or put "in a vulnerable spot," the official said.

     Before his nomination as CIA director, Petraeus was considered the nation's most well-known and popular military leader since Colin Powell.

     "But his reputation was potentially tarnished by the controversy over the terror attack on the U.S. mission in Benghazi, Libya, that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans in September."

     Petraeus was expected to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee next week on the Benghazi attack.

 "The Man Who Knew Too Much"

*1956 Alfred Hitchcock Film --A family vacationing in Morocco accidentally stumble on to an assassination plot and the conspirators are determined to prevent them from interfering. 

     There was wide speculation in the media following the Benghazi attack, that Ambassador Christopher Stevens may have been targeted for assassination.  Perhaps those same media speculators might want to connect the dots and uncover who, or what forces would want to prevent (Petraeus) from interfering with his testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee.
