You'd think the Director of the CIA would know better

It’s also worrisome that the nation’s spymaster — who had presided in a military where adultery could result in court-martial — could not have found a more clandestine manner of talking naughty to his biographer babe than a Gmail drop box, a semiprivate file-sharing system used by terrorists, teenagers and authors.

I was thinking the same thing, Maureen.

I can understand why a man might have an affair. I can understand why a woman might be jealous of another woman. But what I cannot understand for the life of me is why a person who heads up a security organization would think his Gmail account is actually private. You sort of wonder if Petraeus also  sexts and puts incriminating pictures on his Facebook page thinking no one else can see them.

Let's teach our kids to be a little smarter about online privacy and reputation, OK?
