Criticized Over $200K Salary, Petraeus to Take $1


Former CIA director David Petraeus is taking a big salary cut for his visiting professorship at the City University of New York’s honors college after being criticized for how much he was getting paid.

Petraeus, a hero of the Iraq and Afghan wars, will teach instead for $1, down from the $200,000 he was to have been paid. Petraeus, his attorney said, wanted “to remove money as a point of controversy.”
