How Is General Petraeus Different To Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Kennedy and Clinton

Presidents Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Kennedy and Clinton all had illicit affairs.

We were told that it was a private matter and hurt no one. In some cases the female participants were publicly trashed. In fact, having affairs was considered a resume enhancement because it showed virility and sexuality.

Those who complained were mocked and derided by the press.

So why is a crime for General Petraeus to have an affair? National security certainly can't be the reason, the White House leaks vital security information often and that is not a security issue.

What possibly could be wrong about the general having a little action under his desk?
