Who is Paula Broadwell?

Paula Dean Broadwell is an American writer, academic, and former military officer. Broadwell is known for the extramarital affair ending the career of David Petraeus as the Director of the CIA. An FBI investigation found Paula Broadwell stalking Senior Military Leaders and top U.S. Officials. The investigation was initiated when Broadwell sent anonymous threats to General Allen, Director Petraeus and Dr. Scott Kelley, a cancer surgeon married to a woman with strong military and diplomatic connections. According to court documents, Broadwell's emails alleged she was physically tracking top U.S. leaders and the Kelley family's whereabouts, suspecting Broadwell had intercepted into Petraeus's emails. Broadwell's FBI investigation ultimately ended Petraeus as CIA boss and her security clearance was revoked. Charges were dropped, but according to the Army, a separate investigation is currently underway after the discovery of unauthorized classified documents was found in Broadwell's possession during the course of her FBI investigation.
