The Petraeus Affair
by

On those rare occasions when a friend takes pity on me and invites me to the Cosmos Club for dinner, I often see General Petraeus seated at a corner table, alone with his wife. Neither talk to each other. It is painful to see. I remember him at an AEI banquet in 2007, where he was the guest of honor, the man who led the American army to victory in the surge in Iraq. He was, it was thought, an eminently suitable candidate for the presidency—for either party.

What happened next, we all know. A shoddy affair. A resignation as CIA director. Now the threat of an indictment for leaking state secrets to his mistress. Even Senator Feinstein thinks the threat of prosecution excessive.

I can think of only one reason why the Justice Department should be thinking of a criminal prosecution.

He must have written a book.
