With news of General David Patraeus’ resignation as CIA Director, a shock wave has moved through the halls of Congress.
While writing a book about General Patraeus a West Point graduate turned author developed a significant relationship with the officer while they were embedded in Afghanistan. Paula Broadwell's book has one subject. General David Patraeus. The content of emails sent between Patraeus and Broadwell now has friends of Col. Theodore Westhusing asking questions. Westhusing died following a lengthy confrontational meeting with Patraeus over the corruption Westhusing had uncovered in Iraq as Westhusing worked to train an indigenous security force. "Was General Patraeus not listening to Col. Westhusing because of being distracted with Mrs. Broadwell or other support staff?" asked one officer who asked not to be identified.
