CIA Claims Petraeus Wasn't Going To Quit

The CIA has issued a statement, saying director and former four-star Gen. David Petraeus did not consider resigning the Army over President Obama's withdrawal plans for Afghanistan. Earlier, we reported that a forthcoming biography of Petraeus said, he'd thought about it but decided against what he called grandstanding. It turns out, Petraeus was urged to quit by Max Boot, a conservative writer who frequently covers military affairs. The Associated Press describes the biography as part hagiography and part defense of Petraeus' counterinsurgency strategy. The book is co-authored by Paula Broadwell and Vernon Loeb of the Washington Post
