Well Broadwell was tied to US Propaganda Broadcast Board of Governors. Walter Isaacson used to be the chairman there. He is president of the Aspen Institute where she gave out classified information about two prisoners being at the Benghazi Embassy.

I know the "Honey Pot Scenario" is being bandied about, but I doubt Broadwell was a spy. She's a West Point graduate and Colonel in the Army reserves with an entirely American upbringing. She could have been turned, of course, but it is not essential to the story.
After all, she blew it completely. If she had not been so impetuous and getting herself involved with the Kelley/Allen mess, they may not have been officially discovered. Plus, in terms of espionage "tradecraft," the whole thing was amateurish. The "trick" was to both have access to each other's accounts, write drafts without sending them, then have the other one access and read the drafts, thus avoiding a trail though the Net. Obviously, the FBI had no problem hacking the accounts. Oops! And a word to the wise for the rest of us. But to top it all off, Broadwell fixed up some dummy accounts to threaten Kelley! So if she was a spy, she was about the dumbest one around.
I understand the realtionship was an "open secret," but without the interference there would have been no reason for the FBI to get involved. Heads will roll, but there's always another General waiting in the wings itching for promotion.edit on 11/14/2012 by schuyler because: (no reason given)
WASHINGTON -- A U.S. official says the Army has suspended the security clearance of the woman who had an affair with CIA Director David Petraeus, triggering his resignation. Paula Broadwell, a West Point graduate, is a former Army intelligence officer and held a high security clearance.
Because her clearance was issued through the Army, it was the service's move to suspend it. It's not unusual for someone's clearance to be suspended if that person is under investigation, particularly in cases of possible security breaches. Officials say that an FBI investigation has revealed that Broadwell sent emails to another woman warning her to stay away from Petraeus.
The FBI also found possibly classified documents on Broadwell's computer.
The official was not authorized to speak publicly about the clearance so requested anonymity.
In another development in the case, the military suspended the Air Force base pass of Tampa socialite Jill Kelley, whose complaints of email harassment led to the discovery of the affair. Pentagon spokesman Lt. Col. Steven Warren says the decision to indefinitely suspend Jill Kelley's pass to MacDill Air Force Base was made in the last couple of days.

The other thing I heard was that maybe Patreaus was being blackmailed in or to get good testimony out of him on Benghazi......maybe he thought resigning would get him out of that pickle.
While Petraeus prepares to give his side, lawmakers have begun to openly question when Petraeus first knew about the investigation that uncovered his affair -- and whether it impacted his statements to Congress on Sept. 14 about the Libya terror attack.
Petraeus briefed lawmakers that day that the attack was akin to a flash mob, and some top lawmakers noted to Fox News he seemed "wedded" to the administration's narrative that it was a demonstration spun out of control. The briefing appeared to conflict with one from the FBI and National Counterterrorism Center a day earlier in which officials said the intelligence supported an Al Qaeda or Al Qaeda-affiliated attack.
