David Petraeus apologizes for conduct, affair

Former CIA director spoke at USC ROTC dinner

LOS ANGELES - Former CIA director David Petraeus says he's sorry for the conduct that led to his resignation.

Petraeus spoke Tuesday night at the University of Southern California's annual ROTC dinner.

He told the audience of veterans, "the reason for my recent journey was my own doing."

The hero of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars has remained largely in seclusion since resigning following the disclosure of an extramarital affair.

The affair with the retired four-star general's biographer, Paula Broadwell, was discovered during an FBI investigation into emails she sent to another woman she viewed as a rival for his attention.
