Petraeus Sex Scandal: Does It Put the Whole Nation at Risk?

There are a ton of crazy sordid details in this drama - all at the above link but I wanted to focus on just one part:

•"Classified" material has been found on Paula Broadwell's computer, but both Petraeus and Broadwell deny that it came from him.


So we know he resigned. Is there anyone that thinks he should not have resigned?

If there is the potential for serious security leaks, should this perhaps not set a new precident?

Should the expectation going forward be that individuals in very sensitive positions (including POTUS) resign for the good of the country when they are caught in a situation that might compromise national security?

Should he have been fired if he refused to resign?
