by Colonel on March 27, 2013

“David Petraeus apologized in front of an audience of about 600, who welcomed him with a standing ovation, for an extramarital affair with his biographer in his first public speech since resigning as the head of the CIA.

“Needless to say, I join you, keenly aware that I am regarded in a different light now than I was a year ago,” Petraeus said Tuesday night to an audience of mostly veterans at the University of Southern California’s annual ROTC dinner at a hotel. …

“I am also keenly aware that the reason for my recent journey was my own doing. So please allow me to begin my remarks this evening by reiterating how deeply I regret — and apologize for — the circumstances that led to my resignation from the CIA and caused such pain for my family, friends and supporters,” Petraeus said.
