The David Petraeus investigation
CIA Director David Petraeus unexpectedly resigned in November, citing "extremely poor judgment" after engaging in an extramarital affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell. The investigation has widened to include an examination of emails between Gen. John Allen, commander of U.S. and international forces in Afghanistan, and Jill Kelley, a Florida socialite who is a friend of Petraeus, Allen and their wives.

Petraeus, the retired four-star general renowned for taking charge of the military campaigns in Iraq and then Afghanistan, abruptly resigned last week as director of the CIA, admitting to an extramarital affair. Petraeus carried on the affair with Broadwell, according to several U.S. officials with knowledge of the situation.
