Steve Boylan said. “In a conversation with David Petraeus this weekend, he said that, ‘Furious would be an understatement.’ And I think anyone that’s been put in that situation would probably agree. He deeply hurt the family.” As for Petraeus, the retired Army general who resigned as CIA director last week […]

    Could David Petraeus Face Military Prosecution for Affair?

    (WASHINGTON) — Retired Gen. David Petraeus, who resigned as CIA director last week after admitting an extramarital relationship, could possibly face military prosecution for adultery if officials turn up any evidence to counter his apparent claims that the affair began after he left the military.

    Report: Pilot Shortage Looming in the US

According to the Journal, the rule will require new pilots to clock in at least 1,500 hours of flight experience, which is six times the current minimum. Also adding to the shortage will be a federal mandate taking effect in early 2014 that will […]
