(WASHINGTON) — The CIA has confirmed that the agency’s inspector general is investigating Gen. David Petraeus’ conduct in the wake of his admitted affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell. Petraeus resigned last week as CIA chief.
A CIA spokesman issued a statement saying, “At the CIA we are constantly reviewing our performance. If there are lessons to be learned from this case we’ll use them to improve. But we’re not getting ahead of ourselves; an investigation is exploratory and doesn’t presuppose any particular outcome.”
The FBI has been conducting its own investigation into Petraeus’ extramarital affair.
