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.

I stopped watching the news after tues ( couldn’t take it) so am getting caught up with this. None of it makes sense....and it all looks like a take down to me. When the hell is there going to be push back against Obama?clearly what happened in Benghazi is some serious $hit if they are taking out high ranking military to keep them quiet. Can’t one high ranking military guy go kick his ass?
What world are we living in? Fiscal cliff. Integrity cliff. Talk about a train wreck.
Everyone is chasing e-mails from women,and not what happened in Benghazi....this is all par of a cover-up of Benghazi..
they learned in fast and furious..the longer you can detract you enemies to some other subject..the longer it will be off the front page..and interest will wan....when is the last time we heard of anything on fast and furious..is it any closer to being solved????
Please add me to your Benghazi List. Thnx!
The Clinton people are trying their hardest to make this a massive sex scandal to keep it from being about Benghazi.
They know that sex is a way to cover up a lot of other junk. (Ex: Remember how Clinton's thing became all about sex rather than obstruction of justice and perjury?).
Don't think the tactic is going to work this time.
but in 20,000?
I guess also that we will find out the nature of the emails was work-related.
They're digging for a crime. Petraeus' affair was after he left his military post (no crime) so now they're trying to pin an affair on another high-level military man still in the service so they can attach a criminal probe to the the whole thing.
Thanks for posting. You remarks are the only ones that make sense to me. This is one scary Administration. But we already knew that...
Thanks - that clears it up.
Jill Kelley seems to be a celebrity stalker.
yep ... or at very least see the Red Flag. Anything else?
