Former CIA Director David Petraeus, who resigned last fall following an extra-marital affair, is re-entering public life. And in his first speech since resigning, made an apology.
FOX News Radio's Steve Knight reports:
Petraeus was just moments into a his first public speech since resigning...
(Petraeus) "How deeply I regret and apologize for."
...his extra-marital affair with biographer Paula Broadwell.
Petraeus spoke at the University of Southern California's ROTC dinner:
(Petraeus) "Perhaps my experience can be instructive to others who stumble or indeed fall as far as I did."
The FBI discovered the affair.
Petraeus quickly resigned from the CIA and submerged himself in private life, trying to repair the admitted damage.
A high-powered Washington attorney is helping Petraeus develop a new role for himself as a voice on veterans issues and in the private sector.
