Skip to comments.THE REAL REASON GEN. ALLEN RESIGNED
Posted on 08/02/2016 3:34:44 PM PDT by SoFloFreeper
Marine Gen. John Allen, a 1976 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, served this country admirably for more than 36 years. Now he has announced he wants to retire.
The 59 year-old former top officer in Afghanistan cited his wife's "chronic" illness and said he wants to devote more time to helping his beloved Kathy cope with serious health problems, including an undisclosed "auto-immune disorder."
We join the vast majority of Americans who pray the general's wife will get better, and thank him for his service to this country. But one would have to be pathetically naive not to realize that a major factor in Allen's sudden departure is the mess he got into last year with a "generals groupie" in Florida.
THE GENERAL AND THE SOCIALITE
It's "bad judgment" at minimum to exchange more than 20,000 e-mails with the mysterious Jill Kelley, a Tampa socialite who threw lavish parties for top CENTCOM brass. This status-seeker freaked out when she got "threatening" e-mails from another gal, the much better-looking LTC Paula Broadwell, USAR, and called in the FBI.
The over-rated media-darling GEN David Petraeus had to resign his new post as CIA director when it was revealed he and his much-younger lover had an affair while Broadwell was in Kabul writing a fawning book about him.
We are not in the least bit surprised that both Petraeus and Broadwell, who could have been brought up on charges under the Uniform Code of Military Justice for committing adultery and conduct unbecoming an officer, have not even received a slap-on-the-wrist from the military. Once again, "different spanks for different ranks."

If Trump had chosen a military advisor with such a past, the media would trumpet it 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Also, Republicans would publicly decry--along with Barack Hussein Obama--such a choice.
It’s all a ridiculous nest of scoundrels, except the press is there to ignore reality and put out fantasy.
General Allen’s latest statements sound dangerous. He is calling for an unprecedented civil/ military crisis - because Trump wouldn’t want a lot of refugees from Syria?
This Allen is a kook.
So newt was treated unfairly
Jill Kelley, the "Tampa socialite" referred to in the article.
And her maiden name is? IIRC she has ties to moose limb Brotherhood.
