Among the interesting details to emerge most recently are the following:
According to Eric Leser, writing today for the French site of Slate.com, the FBI reached the conclusion that there was no security issue.
The FBI agents contacted Petraeus at the end of October or in early November, and told him that there would be no further pursuit of the matter. David Petraeus as well as Paula Broadwell have not committed any crime and have not violated any law.
