The director of the CIA is caught with his pants down ["Petraeus knew of threats," News, Nov. 13]. Elected officials send pictures of their body parts to women. Generals have affairs. Is it any wonder none of these people can agree on a budget plan for our country? They have no sense of responsibility or accountability for their own actions!

This Petraeus scandal may not be a total loss. I can envision a new series: "The Real Housewives of the CIA."
