    • 2012 November 9, Michael D. Shear, “Petraeus Quits; Evidence of Affair Was Found by F.B.I.”, New York Times:
      Mr. Petraeus’s admission and resignation represent a remarkable fall from grace for one of the most prominent figures in America’s modern military and intelligence community, a commander who helped lead the nation’s wartime activities in the decade after the Sept. 11 attacks and was credited with turning around the failing war effort in Iraq.
