(CHRISTIAN POST) — The father of Paula Broadwell, the author and military reservist at the center of the extramarital affair involving former CIA director David Petraeus, has described his daughter as an “exceptional person.” He also claims that she may be the victim of a character assassination attempt, according to reports.

Paul Kranz, a retired high school basketball coach, publicly defended his 40-year-old daughter Sunday just days after news broke of her affair with Petraeus, 60. He also alluded to ongoing speculation regarding other possible reasons for Petraeus’ resignation.

“This is about something else entirely, and the truth will come out,” Kranz recently told The New York Daily News outside his home in Bismarck, N.D. “There is a lot more that is going to come out.You wait and see. There’s a lot more here than meets the eye.”
