Director of National intelligence urged David Petraeus to resign in aftermath of extra marital affa

Washington , Mon, 12 Nov 2012 ANI

Washington, Nov. 12 (ANI): The Director of National Intelligence James Clapper urged CIA Director David Petraeus to resign after being notified by the FBI of his involvement in an extramarital affair, US officials have confirmed.

Petraeus' name initially surfaced after a Tampa woman contacted the FBI for receiving a number of anonymous 'harassing emails', which apparently referenced the CIA director.

Federal agents quickly traced the emails back to Petraeus' biographer, Paula Broadwell, and further investigation revealed evidence of an extramarital affair between them.

Law enforcement sources said the FBI did not alert congressional intelligence committees of the investigation since it was determined the affair was a private drama and not a matter of national security, CBS News reports.

According to report, Broadwell and Petraeus, each married and with two children, spent time together in Afghanistan, when Petraeus commanded forces there and Broadwell was conducting research for her book 'All In: The Education of General David Petraeus'.

The emails that prompted the initial investigation indicated that Broadwell may have viewed the Tampa woman as a rival for Petraeus' attention, the report said.

In his resignation letter to the CIA, Petraeus confessed a moral falling, saying he used 'extremely poor judgment' which was 'unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours'. (ANI)
