Gen. David Patraeus slips up with Broadwell affair

| No Comments

The full story of Gen. David Patraeus' affair with Paula Broadwell continues to unravel after Patraeus resigned as head of the CIA over the weekend.
The BBC reported that the FBI uncovered the affair after a woman named Jill Kelley, a friend of Patraeus' wife, told them of anonymous harassing emails which turned out to be from Broadwell.
Broadwell and Patraeus got to know each other while Broadwell, an Army reservist with little experience in journalism, was a graduate student at Harvard.
She then spent a lot of time around Patraeus while writing his biography which concerned many in his staff, according to a report by The Washington Post.
Patraeus has been married for 38 years. Broadwell is also married and a mother of two, according to the BBC.
Patraeus' successful military career, highlighted by admirable leadership in Iraq and Afghanistan, had drawn speculation of a possible future run for president.
