Paula Broadwell: The lady behind David Petraeus's resignation

 

Paula Broadwell, the author of David Petraeus' biography, had an affair with the former CIA director that led to his abrupt resignation on Friday


Paula Broadwell, a Harvard researcher who co-wrote a biography of David Petraeus, is the woman with whom the retired four-star general had an affair while in Afghanistan .He admitted it was unacceptable behaviour.

At FBI headquarters, spokesman Paul Bresson declined to comment on the information that the affair had been discovered in the course of an investigation by the bureau.

Broadwell co-authored "All In: The Education of General David Petraeus," which was released in earlier this year. According to her website, she was embedded with the general in Afghanistan from July 2010 to July 2011 and was "afforded extensive access by General Petraeus, his mentors, his subordinates, and his longtime friends she was taping many of her interviews for her book  in the Afghan capital.

Her biography on the Penguin Speakers Bureau Web site says that she is a research associate at Harvard’s Center for Public Leadership and a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of War Studies at King’s College London. She received a master’s in public administration from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government.

In army an extramarital affair is considered to be the  possible grounds for court-martial as because of the breach of security and an intelligence threat.

It was revealed after an F.B.I. investigation uncovered evidence that he had been involved in an extramarital affair. F.B.I. was investigating a “potential criminal matter” an unrelated and much broader case before stumbling on the affair and during the course of their inquiry into whether a computer used by  Petraeus had been compromised, the name of biographer Paula Broadwell came up ,FBI followed that lead and in doing so discovered evidence of the relationship as well as other security concerns.

 FBI is conducting an ongoing investigation into Broadwell to see whether she had improper access to Petraeus' emails and may have seen classified information.

Director Petraeus is an individual who has devoted nearly 40 years of service to his country, rising through the ranks to become a distinguished four-star general and commander of American forces in Iraq and Afghanistan
