In April, Petraeus was hired by the university to teach the course this fall. The university was attempting to secure funding for his salary through a private gift, according to the documents obtained in the FOIA request.

The retired four-star general who commanded U.S. troops in Afghanistan resigned as CIA director last year after admitting to an extramarital affair with his biographer.
