CIA Director David Petraeus resigned Friday, citing an extramarital affair, NBC News reported.
The retired U.S. Army general has served as CIA director since June 2011.
Prior to that, he was the top commander on the ground in Iraq, and the top commander in Afghanistan following the retirement of Gen. Stanley McChrystal.
Petraeus turned over the Afghan command to Gen. John Allen in July 2011.
