Ruppersberger Statement on

Resignation of CIA Director Petraeus


(Washington, DC) – Congressman C.A. Dutch Ruppersberger, Ranking Member of the House Intelligence Committee, released the following statement on the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus.


“During his tenure at the Central Intelligence Agency, former Director Davie Petraeus has appeared frequently before the House Intelligence Committee and has informed us of CIA developments in a frank and collaborative manner. His prior leadership in Iraq and Afghanistan has shaped the progress we have made to reduce terrorism in those countries, counter the insurgencies and work with the elected governments to build peace and prosperity. Former Director Petraeus has served the United States for decades with distinction and I wish him and his family all the best in the future.”
