OK, this is just getting stupid now. You all know about Jill Kelley, the “rival” for David Petraeus’ paramour, Paula Broadwell. Now whether Kelley and Petraeus were carrying on together is a matter of speculation for investigators to figure out. But it appears Kelley sure does have an effect on the guys out there. First off, the FBI agent investigating Petraeus though it would be a good idea to send shirtless photos of himself to Kelley during the investigation, never a bright idea.
Now we discover Kelley herself was carrying on some sort of email correspondence with the Allied Commander in Afghanistan, General John Allen. And no, not some harmless “Hi, how ya doing doing” emails. But possibly as many as 30,000(!) emails. Wrap your head around that. Is there anyone in your life you’ve even sent 30,000 emails to?
The FBI probe into the sex scandal that led to the resignation of CIA director David Petraeus 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 pages of “potentially inappropriate” e-mails between Allen and Jill Kelley, a 37-year-old Tampa woman whose close friendship with Petraeus ultimately led to his downfall. Allen, a Marine, succeeded Petraeus as the top allied commander in Afghanistan in July 2011….
The latest development in the unfolding scandal has shaken President Obama’s national-security staff and upended his carefully chosen plans for his military and intelligence team in his second term.
It also further calls into question the personal behavior of two of the U.S. military’s highest-ranking and most respected figures, who apparently ignored concerns about the highly sensitive nature of their jobs as they embraced personal relationships with younger women who were not their wives.
Why would the top military commanders concern themselves when there’s no leadership at the top? They know Obama could care less about anything that was going on when he was spending the last two years campaigning for his own job.
Now when you think about it, if Allen was untoward with Kelley it seems the email orgy would have stopped after a few thousand, maybe 10,000 at most, before she grew bored with any advances. But 30,000 emails? Um, something was going on here folks.
No wonder she’s lawyered up even before this latest revelation.
Kelley, an “unpaid social liaison” at MacDill Air Force Base, has hired DC superlawyer Abbe Lowell and crisis PR person Judy Smith.
Meanwhile, you may have noticed Kelley has a twin sister, who can be seen in the background to the right. Well, it appears Petraeus also was “helping” her though a custody dispute.
Gen. David Petraeus sure loved helping his lady friends.
While he was director of the CIA, Petraeus wrote a letter supporting the child-custody fight of the “psychologically unstable” twin sister of his close friend Jill Kelley — whose bombshell claims of being threatened by his lover led to the top spy’s resignation last week, sources told The Post.
The four-star general’s letter to the court — written in the past two months — supported a motion to overturn a ruling made nearly a year earlier by a judge who resoundingly denied custody to Kelley’s sister, Natalie Khawam, because of serious reservations about her honesty and mental stability, court records show.
The letter was filed in DC Superior Court, where the father of Khawam’s 4-year-old son filed for divorce three years ago, two sources said. The status of the divorce was not immediately known.
Her sister wears nighties at parties, while the twin likes to wear supersized pearl necklaces. Petraeus just wears a shit-eating grin.
