The David Petraeus and Paula Broadwell affair scandal turns into a new twist by ensnaring Gen. John R. Allen, the commander of U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan, the Pentagon announced early Tuesday as first reported by Washington Post.

In a rapid turn of events, the FBI has uncovered Gen. John R. Allen emails of around between 20,000 and 30,000 pages which is cited as “potentially inappropriate” communication to Jill Kelley.

Who is Jill Kelly?

Jill Kelly is a 37-year-old woman from Tampa Florida, described as an unpaid social liaison at MacDill Air Force Base, Fla., which is headquarters to the U.S. Central Command as reported by Fox News. The source points out that Kelly is not a U.S. government employee. Her work yields close friendship with then General Petraeus and his wife Holly.

Sad to say that Jill Kelly enquiries ultimately led to David Pertraeus resignation as the Director of the CIA on Friday. Kelly reported a threatening emails to the FBI which came from not known source. Later, the FBI learned that the emails came from Petraeus' biographer Paula Broadwell, who after further investigation had an extramarital affair with Petraeus.

But the Petraeus-Broadwell affair scandal spilled more beans that implicated another senior military official which bring more headaches on President Obama national security team.

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta issued written statement that Pentagon will conduct 'further review' after being notified by FBI regarding Allen’s email communications with Kelley. Panetta said Allen would remain as commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan for now, “while the matter is under investigation and before the facts are determined.” according to the statement. But he can be replaced anytime soon.

General John Allen is a four-star Marine general that succeeded Petraeus as the top American commander in Afghanistan in July 2011. John Allen wiki only specify his military career accomplishment but doesn't mentioned whether he is married or single.

But some quirky romance site revealed a letter which is allegedly from Lt.Gen. John R.Allen implying he's looking for romance. Here's some of the excerpts, "I am a lonely person. I just want to share what I have with a loving partner.A person who is genuine, quiet natured, honest hearted and trustworthy. One who likes to travel and to enjoy the good life. I like a lady who takes a pride in her appearance as well as her home and is happy to meet and entertain people."
