The “other woman” in the affair that prompted CIA Director David Petraeus’ resignation is Paula Broadwell, the biographer who wrote All In: The Education of General David Petraeus.

Slate’s Fred Kaplan writes:

It had long been rumored that something was going on between Petraeus and Broadwell. Her book, co-written with Vernon Loeb, is widely regarded as a valentine to the general.
