Broadwell apologizes for ‘harm, sadness’

Paula Broadwell, the Charlotte author whose affair with Gen. David Petraeus made national headlines, apologized in an interview with a Charlotte TV station.

“I have remorse for the harm, sadness that this has caused in my family and other families and for causes that we belong to,” she told WSOC-TV. “...I’m not focused on the past, I’m not dwelling on it.”

She said in the interview that she continues to spend much of her time supporting veterans and wounded warriors.

In April, Broadwell attended the YMCA prayer breakfast.

“The mission today, the prayer breakfast today, was to speak about redemption and slowing down in life and finding purpose,” Broadwell told News 14. “It really touched my heart. I’ve made some mistakes in the past but I’m trying to look forward with my family.”

Broadwell, who lives in Dilworth, became a national figure last year after disclosure of her affair with Petraeus, then-director of the CIA and former commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan. Petraeus resigned.
