He had to step down because he was being investigated by the FBI as they THOUGH he was being blackmailed by the woman.
Now the timing is interesting in that he did it the day before he would have had to swear to tell the truth and my guess is it would have sunk Obama, so bad that he may have been forced to resign, we KNOW its worse than Nixon.
But then this begs the question, will he step and testify as a civillian and HONOR his code of ethics. If he does not I and most military officers well lose ALL RESPECT for him. I did not known know him well enough to say who he was one way or another, but I did know who he was and what kind of rep he had. He was HIGHLY thought of by those who worked with and for him and I had good friends who thought VERY highly of him.
