This July 13, 2011, photo made available on the International Security Assistance Force's Flickr website shows the former Commander of International Security Assistance Force and U.S. Forces-Afghanistan Gen. Davis Petraeus, left, shaking hands with Paula Broadwell, co-author of "All In: The Education of General David Petraeus."As details emerge about Petraeus' extramarital affair with his biographer, Broadwell, including a second woman who allegedly received threatening emails from the author, members of Congress say they want to know exactly when the now ex-CIA director and retired general popped up in the FBI inquiry, whether national security was compromised and why they weren't told sooner.

Turns out she really does win at everything. The Justice Department announced on Tuesday that Paula Broadwell, General David Petraeus’s mistress, will not be facing charges for the alleged online stalking of a “romantic rival,” who many thought to be Tampa Bay socialite Jill Kelley. The cyberstalking investigation began when Kelley reported to the FBI threatening emails from an account linked back to Broadwell. In a letter obtained by the AP from Broadwell's lawyer, U.S. Attorney Robert O'Neill confirmed that all charges related to the “alleged acts of cyberstalking,” have been dropped. Petraeus resigned in November after admitting to an extramarital affair with Broadwell, the author of his biography All In: The Education of General David Petraeus.
