Secretary of Defense David Petraeus Faces Terrorist on USS Barack Obama in Latest Call of Duty Installation

The former CIA director got a promotion in the the video game's world but was not involved in developing or doing voice work


Although David Petraeus stepped down as CIA Director amid the scandal of his extramarital affair, he's been promoted elsewhere—as Secretary of Defense in the video game Call of Duty: Black Ops II.

Black Ops II, released Tuesday, is the latest installment in Activision's bestselling game franchise and transports the first-person shooter action to 2025. A clip, via the gaming website Kotaku, shows Petraeus facing down a terrorist prisoner aboard the USS Barack Obama; another scene features him being attacked by enemy aircraft alongside President Bosworth, a female commander-in-chief with a Hillary Clinton haircut.
