    Petraeus, 64, is a retired four-star general and was once America's top official in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars. He had to step down as CIA director after it became known in 2012 that he shared classified information with a biographer who was also his mistress.

    Harward, a former Navy SEAL, is the front-runner for the job, three senior officials told NBC News. Harward spent almost 40 years in the Navy and was on President George W. Bush's National Security Council with experience in several Middle Eastern countries as well as Somalia and Bosnia.
