The FBI probe into the sex scandal that prompted CIA Director David Petraeus to resign has expanded to ensnare Gen. John R. Allen, the commander of U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan, the Pentagon announced early Tuesday.
According to a senior U.S. defense official, the FBI has uncovered between 20,000 and 30,000 documents most of them e-mails of potentially inappropriate communications between Allen and Jill Kelley, a 37-year-old Tampa woman whose close relationship with Petraeus ultimately led to his downfall.
Allen, a Marine, succeeded Petraeus as the top allied commander in Afghanistan in July 2011. He also served as Petraeuss deputy when both generals led the militarys Tampa-based Central Command from 2008 until 2010.
The FBI first notified the Pentagon of its investigation into Allens communications with Kelley on Sunday evening, according to the senior defense official, who spoke on condition of anonymity to discuss details of the pending case.
In response, Pentagon chief Leon E. Panetta referred the investigation on Monday to the Defense Departments Inspector General for further review, according to a statement released by Panetta early Tuesday as he was traveling to Australia.

New International Version 1984
“Godlessness in the Last Days
1But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. 2People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, 4treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God 5having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them.
6They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over weak-willed women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires, 7always learning but never able to acknowledge the truth. 8Just as Jannes and Jambres opposed Moses, so also these men oppose the truthmen of depraved minds...”

Ever since it was revealed that Jill Kelley, the woman arguably at the center of the currently-unfolding drama rocking the U.S. government, is of Lebanese origin, Twitter users have asked whether she and CIA Director Petraeus mistress Paula Broadwell should be investigated for potential national security leaks.
Kelley first came into the public eye after Broadwell began sending her threatening emails regarding getting too close to Petreaus. But she really piqued the publics interest after it was revealed that General John Allen also sent her thousands of pages of inappropriate emails, and an FBI agent even sent her shirtless photos of himself.
Now, Orcas George at the extremely left-leaning Daily Kos has begun building the case that Kelleys actions are suspicious at best, and that if she was not in the employ of a foreign intelligence service, the worlds spy agencies have collectively suffered a dereliction of duty.
Mind you, The Daily Kos is the same site that called Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmanns investigation into Huma Abedin a witch hunt, despite tangible connections to the Muslim Brotherhood.

Great question. Have seen that word from more than a few. Buckling up.
Want to ask a favor ... am asking if a link can be brought (dang, almost typed that zer0 campaign slogan, kicking myself) and would you please ping me. No rush, and have searched a little bit myself. Maybe you have some info, I have not seen. If this request is a bother, please disregard.
No bother. :). Link I had was taken down but here is a link. Not full speech, but I think relevant portion is included.
I googled “Oct 26 speech by Paula broadwell” and got a bunch of hits. Among those was a USA today article. See page 2:
I saved it and can FRmail if anybody needs to read it.
Speaking of google... What is the name of that secure browser that doesn’t store info? Something with an X?
Awesome. Thank you.
