The Love Pentagon: Paula Broadwell, Jill Kelley two Generals a topless FBI agent
HEROES of the surveillance State are being undone by invasions into their privacy. Former CIA director David Petraeus has already lost his job because of his extra-martial sex with his biographer, Mrs Paula Broadwell. Now the man who took over form General Petraeus in Afghanistan and scheduled to be Nato’s Supreme Allied Commander is embroiled in a sex scandal. He’s General John Allen. He’s been conversing with Jill Kelley.
Earlier this years, Kelly called in the FBI. She said emails of a threatening nature had been sent to her. The Feds traced the emails to Mrs Broadwell. With an appetite whetted, the FBI dug deeper and found emails linking Mrs Broadwell and General Petraeus. Those emails reveled their affair.
All delicious stuff.
Leon Panetta, the US Defence Secretary, has referred the matter to the Pentagon’s inspector general for investigation.
It’s a love Pentagon.
General Petraeus and General Allen served in Tampa, home to US Central Command. Kelly lives in Tampa.
You want more? Well an unidentified FBI agent allegedly sent topless photos of himself to Mrs Kelley, after she requested his help.
A pal of Generl Petraeus reveals: “His words to me were: ‘I screwed up’.”
The senior official, who discussed the matter only on condition of anonymity because it is under investigation, said Panetta believed it was prudent to launch a Pentagon investigation, although the official would not explain the nature of Allen’s problematic communications.
The official said 20,000 to 30,000 pages of emails and other documents from Allen’s communications with Kelley between 2010 and 2012 are under review. He would not say whether they involved sexual matters or whether they are thought to include unauthorized disclosures of classified information. He said he did not know whether Petraeus is mentioned in the emails.
“Gen. Allen disputes that he has engaged in any wrongdoing in this matter,” the official said. He said Allen currently is in Washington.
How many pages? Were they emailing cut and pasted books to each other?
