Petraeus: I Didn't Give Any Classified Information To Broadwell
WASHINGTON (AP) - Former CIA Director David Petraeus says he never gave any classified information to Paula Broadwell.
He spoke to CNN in his first interview since he was forced to resign because of his affair with Broadwell.
According to a law enforcement official, the FBI has found a substantial number of classified documents on Broadwell's computer and in her home. The official says Broadwell has told agents that she took classified documents out of secure government buildings. The Army has now suspended her security clearance, which she had as a former Army intelligence officer.
President Barack Obama said yesterday that he's seen no evidence that national security was damaged. But members of Congress have been grilling CIA and FBI officials privately to see if that's the case.
Petraeus also told CNN that his resignation had nothing to do with his upcoming testimony to Congress about the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya in September that left the U.S. ambassador and three other Americans dead. Petraeus said he wanted to testify about the Libya matter. He will be testifying tomorrow to the House Intelligence committee -- in a hearing that will be closed to the public.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Wind, humidity and rainfall combined precisely to create the massive killer tornado in Moore, Okla. And when they did, the awesome amount of energy released over that city dwarfed the power of the atomic bomb that leveled Hiroshima. Meteorologists contacted by The Associated Press used real time measurements to calculate the energy released during the storm's life span of almost an hour.>>
