Paula Broadwell Stripped of Secret Clearance Amid Petraeus Scandal

By Pierre Thomas and Martha Raddatz, ABC News

Paula Broadwell, the author suspected of carrying on an affair with former CIA director David Petraeus, has been stripped of her military security clearance after a federal probe alleged she was storing classified military material at her home.

“Appropriate actions with regard to this officer’s clearance and access have been taken,” said Army spokesman George Wright of Broadwell, an Army reservist and West Point graduate.

The inquiry into Broadwell came as Petraeus, one of the country’s most decorated generals, was being pressed to appear before Congress to answer questions about the Sept. 11 terror attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya.

Petraeus is expected to appear at a closed-door session of Congress on Thursday, nearly a week after he publicly admitted to having an affair and resigned his post at CIA.
