Petraeus Eyes Presidency of Princeton, Article Says
September 27, 2012
Might David H. Petraeus, the most prominent military leader of his generation, leave his job as director of the Central Intelligence Agency to become the president of Princeton University?
That possibility was raised by an intriguing article on Thursday in the university newspaper, The Daily Princetonian. In response, the C.I.A. director issued a noncommittal statement that did not deny an interest.
“I think I’ve made my respect and admiration for the great faculty and student body of Princeton University very clear, and I will reiterate that now,” his statement said. “As it currently stands, however, I am living the dream here at C.I.A.”
