FBI: Thousands of “innappropriate” emails from General Allen to Kelley

13 Nov, 2012

The FBI uncovers between 20,000 and 30,000 documents — most of them e-mails — of “potentially inappropriate” communications between Gen. John R. Allen, the commander of U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan, and Jill Kelley. Allen, a Marine, succeeded Petraeus as the top allied commander in Afghanistan in July 2011. He also served as Petraeus’s deputy when both generals led the military’s Tampa-based Central Command from 2008 until 2010.

The FBI first notified the Pentagon of its investigation into Allen’s communications with Kelley on Sunday evening (11 Nov), according to a senior defense official.
