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

http://tinyurl.com/ausvtfu

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?
