The love twister that arose between the CIA director, David Petraeus and his biographer keeps getting worse for his image. After all of the recent discoveries, a new one has risen. Petraeus took his mistress on a trip to Paris funded by the government right after he was given the postion as CIA director! I still can’t believe that a side-woman dethroned the head of US intelligence, well caused him to resign. Hit the jump.
Buzzfeed also reports that Petraeus’s unofficial press agent, Tom Ricks, helped Broadwell score a literary agent, a publisher and a six-figure deal for her biography.
Broadwell isn’t the only biographer of Petraeus’s who has gotten special treatment from him.
His first biographer, former U.S. News and World Reporter Linda Robinson, went to work for Petraeus at U.S. Central Command shortly after publishing her book, ‘Tell Me How This Ends: General David Petraeus and the Search for a Way Out of Iraq.’
