Report: FBI ‘Stunned’ By Petraeus

Wow, this must have been a surprise. The FBI apparently accidentally discovered director David Petraeus’s extramarital affair after being asked to investigate “harassing” emails sent by his biographer and alleged mistress Paula Broadwell, a government official briefed on the case told The New York Times on Saturday. The official said the investigation “started with two women,” but “in the course of the investigation, they stumbled across him. We were stunned.” The retired four-star general announced on Friday that he had resigned from the CIA due to an extramarital affair, reportedly with Broadwell.
