“Dave’s decision to step down represents the loss of one of our nation’s most respected public servants,” Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said in a statement.

Petraeus has submitted a letter of resignation to President Barack Obama, said Clapper.

White House spokesman Jay Carney did not provide any details but said: “We’ll have something from the president on it today.”

Petraeus said in a message to the CIA workforce that he was resigning because of an extramarital affair.

“After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair. Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours,” Petraeus said. Agencies
