>> some saying if we do go off the fiscal cliff, we'll go into recession, as well. and take a look at this, thousands of "twilight" die-hards setting up camp for days outside of a los angeles movie streeters just to be there when the stars come out. and it's not just teenage girls. there's fans of all ages, anxiously waiting for the final installment. we'll tell you what the movie studio is doing to help them pass the time in line. we're going to start with new details on the affair that's brought down the head of the cia. the decorated and celebrated four-star general, david petraeus, once considered a possible presidential candidate. it started in an fbi investigation between e-mail between petraeus and his vid videograph videographer. we start with pierre thomas in washington. >> reporter: the keeper secrets was keeping a scandal of his own.
and just like that, a storied military career and life of service to country. the resignation of the cia director stunned a city not easily shocked. one of the country's most respected and disciplined public officials left office admitting an indiscretion. in a statement to cia employees, petraeus acknowledged an affair. and what he called extremely poor judgment. such behavior is unacceptable, the statement said. both as a husband, and as a leader of an organization such as ours. on thursday, petraeus went to the white house to turn in his resignation. the same place he had so frequently been called on to serve. >> it is a great privilege to serve with our young men and women. >> reporter: the affair was discovered by the fbi after concerns about inappropriate e-mails associated with petraeus surfaced. a focus of the probe turned to his biographer, paula broadwell. >> i think it was a good distraction from the war. >> reporter: petraeus had been
the public face of two wars. one of the architects of the successful surge in iraq, which helped bring the war there to an end. from iraq to afghanistan. then, the call to head the cia. >> are you ready to come back? ready for the cia? >> i feel very fortunate to have been provided such an opportunity to continue to serve and contribute, if confirmed. >> reporter: as he took over cia, holly, his wife of 37 years, stood by his side, as she had done so many times before. the two had met at west point. she was from a long line of army royalty. her great, great grandfather fought in the civil war. her own father was a retired four-star general. the president phrased the direct director's dead dedication and patriotism. and his thoughts were with dave and holly petraeus. now, it's the petraeus family that faces the strain of a deeply personal failure. but the nation's top spy has the to be above reproach. he had to go.
such a revelation was simply devastating. bianna? >> some people still stunned. pierre, thank you. now, to the woman at the center of the scandal. biographer paula broadwell. it was the investigation into her that led to the downfall of petraeus. broadwell had been public about what was described as an unusually close relationship with the general. now, at some point, that relationship turned into an affair. like petraeus, broadwell also had an impressive background. and now, a reputation in shambles. our coverage continues with reena ninan. >> reporter: they are both known as overachievers. as paula broadwell was making rounds in the media for her 400-page biographer about the four-star general. it's not the only one that the fbi is eager to learn more about their relationship. paula broadwell, lifelong overachiever since high school in north dakota, where she was
valedictorian and homecoming queen. went on to receive honors for academic leadership at west point. and was ranked number one overall in fitness in her class. she spent some time in the black ops, got a free from harvard. and later, became biographer with david petraeus. >> do you think he dropped his guard with you? >> reporter: during a book tour this year, broadwell spoke about her access to petraeus, taping many of the interviews for her book, while running six-minute miles with the general. >> to get to know him, he wanted to run with you. >> i thought i would test him. but he was going to test me. but that was the foundation of our relationship. >> reporter: that relationship, now placing the highly-accomplished 40-year-old mother of two in the center of a cia scandal. >> you seem to have a -- i don't know if special relationship is the right word. but he's taken a liking to you. >> reporter: on wfae radio, she was fairful to protect her reputation, now tarnished. >> i think, you know, he was
concerned a little bit about his legacy, as a leader naturally would be. and he was excited to have someone he could trust. >> reporter: married to radiologist, dr. scott broadwell, she seemed as disciplined about her marriage as she is about her fitness. >> you can do it. come on. >> is this how arguments are settled in your house, by any chance? >> i don't win much. >> reporter: broadwell's 40th birthday was yesterday. she has 15 years of military service under her belt. dan? >> reena, thank you. there's another big story brewing in washington this morning. one that will impact the bank account of every american. the president and the republican 1350ek speaker of the house, in a high-stakes duel trying to prevent what is known as taxmageddon. can they cut a deal here? david kerley at the white house. >> reporter: good morning, dan. two months until that financial cliff. the president has invited congressional leaders to come to the white house next week. both sides are talking
compromise. but both also put stakes in the ground. >> thank you, everybody. >> reporter: if you listen to the president -- >> not went into every detail of my plan. i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. >> reporter: and the speaker of the house -- >> everything, on the revenue side and the spending side has to be looked at. >> reporter: it sounded like a deal to avoid that fiscal cliff of tax hikes, $3,700 for the average family, and massive spending cuts, all possibly sending us back into recession. it sounded like a deal is possible. but then -- >> i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. >> reporter: that means more tax money. >> raising tax rates will slow down our ability to create the jobs that everyone says they want. >> reporter: and that's the problem. the president declared the election proof that americans agree with his approach, including the rich paying more, even though the congressional budget office says letting taxes
increase for the rich, could cost 200,000 jobs. >> it would be a negative. but it would be digestible. and i think at the end of the day, necessary to address our long-term fiscal policy. the opening negotiating position from the republicans seems to be, don't increase tax rates. but get rid of some deductions to bring in more tax money. that may not be enough to keep us from going over that fiscal cliff. but that fall may be enough to force political leaders to finally do something. >> if we do nail this down, reasonably so, i think the economy's off and running. so, we're just one piece of legislation away from a much stronger economy. >> reporter: but getting that one piece of legislation may prove very difficult. the president said the voters picked his path. and the house speaker, rightly points out that americans did return the republican house. divided government. the question, bianna, can they unite to avoid this fiscal cliff? >> that is the big question. david, thank you. and now, to the very angry
and frustrated victims of hurricane sandy. hundreds of thousands still without power and demanding answers, some 12 days after the devastating storm hit. as the long lines show, getting gas is still a big problem around parts of new york, as well. but what's not a problem is getting a special delivery in the mail, power bills. abc's john schriffen has the latest from hicksville, long island. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. it is day two of the gas restrictions in new york city and here on long island. to give you an idea how fast this gas is going, just a few minutes ago, they put this sign on this pump, no more gas. five out of the eight pumps at this station, drivers are telling us that the lines continue to wrap around the corner, more than an hour long. and they're only getting longer. but if you think these drivers are frustrated, meet the people here on long island who still don't have power. >> you're a liar. >> you're a liar. >> reporter: look out for the torches and pitch forks because the residents on long island are
beyond angry. going on nearly two weeks with no power. now, turning on their elected officials. >> they are all working to make things better. there is not -- >> reporter: in this region, there are still hundreds of thousands without power. one of the biggest offenders, the long island power authority. to put it mildly, life has been unresponsive. without sending out update letters or apologies, could you believe what some people got in the mail? a bill. >> nobody knows nothing in the building. >> reporter: trying to take matters into their own hands, one woman even carrying her 14-month-old son, they stormed the power company's building to get answers. >> who gets the blame? >> reporter: in a last-minute press conference overnight he was a no-show. leaving the company that manages the grid to make the heat. >> the customers impacted by the storm will be restored by the end of day tuesday.
we'll continue to work tirelessly until all of them are restored. >> reporter: the frustration doesn't end there. in a community depending on cars and generators, long lines snake around gas stations, the ones that are actually open for business. to shorten the wait, new york city and long island implemented a rationing program friday. but our own linsey davis found one woman breaking the rules, challenging the government to step it up. >> it doesn't make any sense what they're doing to us. it is not -- >> you don't think they should ration the gas? >> at all. at all. i think they should do the work. >> reporter: because a major oil refinery in our region went down because of the storm, experpts say there have been fewer deliveries. meaning these lines here at the pump could be here to stay for at least the next few weeks. dan and bianna? >> can you imagine? patience is wearing so thin on these people. >> rightfully so. there's other headlines developing this morning. incredible. ron, the other headlines? >> we do have other headlines. good morning, everyone. beginning with the sentencing

school, something the taliban opposes. this is one of the headlines you'll find in pakistan. malala, the bravest girl in the world. her case is now a rallyi ining for all girls to receive an education. millions of young girls have been inspired by malala. and the u.n. is now pushing for leaders in pakistan and everywhere to make girls' education a priority. >> the idea that a girl simply forgoing to school, or wanting to go to school, was shot by the taliban, is just so unspeakable. >> reporter: around the world, an estimated 32 million girls don't have access to an education. even malala's own classmate who was hurt in the attack, says she's too afraid to go back to school, praying for her best friend to come home. >> i pray for malala. >> reporter: it's a hope now shared by millions. muhammad lila, abc news, islamabad. and the obama administration is extending a key deadline for
its health care law. states have have at least an extra month to submit their plans for health insurance in stages. millions of americans are expected to get private coverage subsidized by the government. many states delayed their plans to see if president obama would be re-elected. he was. and the u.s. supreme court will hear a challenge to the landmark law that protects against racial discrimination at the polls. the voting rights act requires all or parts of 16 states with a history of discrimination in voting to get federal approval before changing the way they hold elections. the high court considered but did not rule on the same issue three years ago. finally, good karma, if you believe in karma, for a chicago man who helped clean up after hurricane sandy. john turner and the staff at his water removal business came to new jersey. they traveled there to clean flooded homes. after a hard day of work, he bought a lottery scratchoff ticket. he won 100,000 bucks.
