Why else did the CIA spymaster resign?

The United States is undergoing a political maelstrom that, in many ways, parallels what is currently going on in China. Though the election ended days ago, a significant victory for Obama, perceived by most as a repudiation of American support for Netanyahu, the real issues are far more sinister.
Powerful forces within the government are reacting, not just to threats of civil war, assassination and domestic terrorism. There is a vast and well-orchestrated clandestine effort to centralize power behind the presidency, preparation likely to lead to an expansion in executive power.
All competing factions, Pentagon, State Department, CIA and courts face disembowelment by the Obama administration.
Does this represent a change in American policy, both domestic and foreign, or is this a consolidation at the behest of the unseen ruling elites many claim controlled both candidates, Obama and Romney, equally?
Today, General David Petraeus resigned as CIA director sighting “poor judgment” in his personal life, an “extramarital affair” as the reason.
No one believes him.
A top American general, the “Patton” of our time, CIA chief and potential presidential candidate is now a broken man, career in ruins, supposedly over an affair with a female American intelligence operative.
From Veterans Today:
First, we are not ready to throw Petraeus to the wolves.
He came to the CIA in handcuffs, historically tied to the phony war on terror, his role in the “Sunni Awakening” which paid off Baathist terrorists who are now tearing Iraq apart.
Then there was his job in Afghanistan, having to clean up the mess made by Stanley McChrystal, who, with Richard Holbrooke, knows more about heroin than Arnold Rothstein ever did.
It is obvious that Petraeus was compromised by a foreign power or found to be involved in something so serious that he would destroy his career and reputation in writing rather than some other consequence, typically “suiciding” or arrest.
