Federal prosecutors are recommending bringing charges against retired General David Petraeus for leaking classified information.

"The New York Times" reports the proposal comes after a Justice Department investigation into an affair Petraeus had with an Army Reserve Officer while he was director of the CIA.

FBI agents discovered classified documents on the computer of Paula Broadwell after Petraeus resigned from the CIA when the affair became public in 2012.

It's now up to U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to decide whether to seek an indictment against the retired four-star general, who also served as commander of American forces in Iraq and Afghanistan. (Metro Networks Inc.)
