The CIA is launching an internal investigation into the conduct of David Petraeus when he was director of the agency. Adis Medunjanin, a US citizen from Bosnia who plotted with two other men to conduct suicide attacks on the New York subway system, was sentenced to life in prison.
Former CIA Director David Petraeus told Congress that he knew shortly after the attack on the US Consulate in Benghazi that Ansar al Shariah and Al Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb were involved; their names were later deleted from the CIA's report, however. The Treasury Department designated Mullah Naim Barich, the Taliban's shadow governor for Helmand province in Afghanistan, as an international drug trafficker.
The Pentagon launched an investigation into correspondence between top Afghanistan commander General John Allen and a woman linked to the extramarital affair between former CIA Director David Petraeus and his biographer. Allen's nomination as commander of US and NATO forces in Europe is on hold. US officials hope to soon determine the pace of the drawdown in Afghanistan and the number of troops to remain after 2014.
