he CIA has launched an investigation into the conduct of its former director, David Petraeus, who resigned last week after admitting to an extramarital affair. The intelligence agency's inspector general reportedly will focus on whether Petraeus misused government resources — jets, security, accommodations — to facilitate meetings with his lover/biographer Paula Broadwell. CIA officials say no evidence has surfaced suggesting Petraeus misused his office, but it's prudent to do an "exploratory" inquiry to be sure. Petraeus, who is testifying Friday before two congressional panels on the deadly Sept. 11 Benghazi attack, told CNN Thursday that he released no classified information to Broadwell, and the FBI has said its investigation into the scandal has turned up no apparent damage to national security. (Broadwell had classified documents on her computer, but they apparently didn't come from the CIA.) Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has ordered a review of ethics training for top brass in the wake of the scandal.
