Who is Paula Broadwell?
Washington: The abrupt departure of celebrated general, David Petraeus, at the helm of America`s top spy agency, Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) after admitting an affair sent shock waves across the political class.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) had a tip he was involved with his biographer, Paula Broadwell, and investigated the alleged affair to determine whether it posed a security risk, CNN reported citing an unnamed official.
The FBI was not investigating Petraeus for wrongdoing. The concern was that he potentially could be blackmailed or put "in a vulnerable spot”, the official said.
Broadwell spent a year with Petraeus in Afghanistan interviewing him for the book she co-wrote, "All In: The Education of General David Petraeus”.
According to her biography on the Penguin Speakers Bureau website, Paula Broadwell is a research associate at Harvard University`s Center for Public Leadership and a PhD candidate in the Department of War Studies, King`s College London. She is also passionate about leadership and security policies.
