David Petraeus Apologizes for Giving Classified Info to Alleged Mistress, Talks Syria StrategyRetired Gen. David Petraeus apologized today to lawmakers for sharing classified information with his biographer and mistress Paula Broadwell in what was his first public testimony before lawmakers since resigning as CIA director. Testifying to the Senate Armed Services Committee, Petraeus said the U.S. military should stop Assad’s use of devastating and indiscriminate barrel bomb attacks, which most observers agree are cause for a majority of the death in Syria and the subsequent human migration. “We could tell Assad that barrel bombs need to end or we could stop their air force from flying,” Petraeus said.
