'Affair': Paula Broadwell and David Petraeus, pictured, reportedly had an affair that led to his resignation
CIA Director David Petraeus dramatically resigned today after allegedly having an affair with his biographer, it has been claimed. The alleged affair was uncovered after the FBI launched an investigation into the biographer, Paula Broadwell, for allegedly hacking into the former general's email, NBC News and Slate reported. Broadwell, who researched the book 'All In' for three years, had extensive access to Petraeus in Afghanistan. Yet sources told NBC it is unlikely she will face criminal charges after the alleged hacking, stressing that Petraeus himself is under no investigation. Petraeus stepped down today after confessing to cheating on his wife of 37 years, Holly - behaviour he explained was 'unacceptable' for a senior administration official.

Don’t care. Has nothing to do with Bambi’s culpability.
Wonder what the FBI found on John Roberts?
She got himbedded in Afghanistan.
Obama sic’d the feds on um.
Forced to quit by The Usurper so he would not have to testify against The Usurper.
He’s an ass !
What was David Petraeus thinking? What a moron.
Who’s the *next* director?
Who is she?
He wasn't thinking, that's the problem.
You can look it up.
Maybe we should run a poll in Al Jazeera. Maybe the Turkish Foreign Minister would be an option.
She’s got a ring on her wedding ring finger.
If nobody's facing criminal charges, what the hell is the FBI investigating?
This story is a total smokescreen. Like Helen Thomas in a Hillary Clinton mask, there's uglier stuff under this ugliness.
I'm guessing she also had a hand in his surge in Iraq.
Wasn’t Betrayus’ wife working for Fauxcahontas? How is that loyal in any way?
Per her Linkedin Profile a 1991 grad of the USMA (West Point), and a MAJ promotable to LTC, in the Army Reserves.
Of course she probably hasn't had time to update her Linkedin Profile, because I serious doubt that her gold oak leaf is ever going to take on a slivery hue.
Draw your own conclusion.
In the Medieval penitential manuals "double adultery" was the worse of all sexual sins.
"Single adultery" was next.
