Petraeus biographer regrets damage done by affair
WASHINGTON (AP) - Ms Paula Broadwell, whose extramarital affair with Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) chief David Petraeus led to his resignation, is telling friends she is devastated by the fallout.
A person close to Ms Broadwell said on Sunday she deeply regrets the damage that has been done to her family and everyone else's, and she is trying to repair that and move forward. The friend spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorised to speak publicly.
A group of friends and neighbours welcomed Ms Broadwell, her husband, Scott, and their young sons back to their home in Charlotte, North Carolina, after Ms Broadwell spent more than a week being hounded by media while staying at her brother's home in Washington. The family friend said she was overwhelmed by the outpouring of support from her neighbours.
Ms Broadwell is still being investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) over classified documents found on her laptop and in her home, which investigators believe the author gathered while researching her biography of General Petraeus in Afghanistan.
