Investigators Focus on Allen Emails

Does this mean Jill Kelley could get her civilian honors back? The investigation into the correspondence between the Tampa socialite and NATO commander Gen. John Allen has been narrowed to about 60 to 70 emails that “bear a fair amount of scrutiny,” a defense official said on Wednesday. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta ordered an inquiry two and a half weeks ago into some 20,000 to 30,0000 “potentially inappropriate” emails between Allen and Kelley, the suspected “other woman” contacted by Paula Broadwell, Gen. David Petraeus’s biographer with whom he was having an affair. The investigation into Allen has held up his nomination as NATO’s supreme commander in Europe, and he has denied any wrongdoing. The defense official said there is no evidence so far of any security breaches between Allen and Kelley.
