Ex-CIA boss David Petraeus to be CUNY professor
NEW YORK -- Ex-CIA director David Petraeus is replacing one kind of intelligence work with another.
Macaulay Honors College at City University of New York said Tuesday the retired four-star general has been named a visiting professor for public policy. He starts Aug. 1.
Petraeus has a doctorate from Princeton University and has written widely on international relations, military strategy and tactics and national security issues.
He says in a statement released by Macaulay he's pleased to teach at the college, where most students are children of immigrants. He says he looks forward to leading a seminar on the global economic slowdown.
Petraeus was a hero of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. He left the CIA in scandal last November after it was uncovered he'd had an affair with his biographer.
