When he went to Afghanistan in 2010, I decided to turn it into a book. I shot him an email and said, I'm going to go for it. I'm not sure he took me seriously but I showed up in afghanistan and he said I was sharing hardship with the troops and said go for it."

SOUNDBITE: Paula Broadwell / Author of "All In: The Education of General David Petraeus

He has put duty on our country and service to the nation above his family, so I almost consider that a strength and a weakness.as a working mother and wife....my husband works really hard too. It's hard to find balance."

[Notes:VO---------]

THE IDENTITY OF THE WOMAN WHO INITIALLY COMPLAINED ABOUT THE HARRASING EMAILS WEREN'T IMMEDIATELY KNOWN.

NO COMMENT YET FROM BROADWELL.

MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE PLAN TO MEET WITH TOP OFFICIALS AT THE FBI AND CIA ON WEDNESDAY TO LEARN MORE ABOUT THE INVESTIGATION.
