The Pentagon says the top American commander in Afghanistan, Gen. John Allen, is is under investigation for alleged "inappropriate" e-mail communications, and a senior defense official says there is a "distinct possibility" the matter is connected with the FBI investigation that led to the resignation of former CIA director David Petraeus.
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said in a written statement issued to reporters aboard his aircraft early Tuesday that the FBI referred the matter to the Pentagon on Sunday, and that he ordered a Pentagon investigation of Allen on Monday.
The defense official confirmed the investigation was due to allegations of inappropriate emails between Allen and Jill Kelley, a close friend of the Petraeus family who reportedly led the FBI to investigate communications between Petraeus and his biographer Paula Broadwell.
The FBI then discovered Petraeus and Broadwell had engaged in an extramarital affair, which led Petraeus to resign as director of the CIA on Nov. 9.

Our top spy can't even keep his extramarital affair a secret.
It's interesting that the White House was not ready to release any of this information until after the election.

It gets harder and harder to watch the news every day, Obama is dismantling the military, who will they be replaced with, friends of Obama?
This president has got a free ticket from all branches of government without exception, we as people are looking the other way on voter fraud and as all this is coming down it is, nothing to see here, just another coincidence, he deserved it they had it coming.
Rinos here and elsewhere just blow it off as business as usual. Frustration, anger,helplessness................................ ........The difference between pigs and people is that when they tell you you're cured it isn't a good thing.
