Gen. John Allen

Marine Gen. John Allen, a four-star commander in the Afghanistan War, has also been caught up in the bizarre scandal. Gen. Allen, 58, is believed to have exchanged thousands of flirtatious emails with a 38-year-old married woman named Jill Kelley, who is a friend of the Petraeus family. Kelley complained that Paula Broadwell, the woman having the affair with Gen. Petreaus, was sending her threatening emails. That complaint eventually led to Petraeus' disclosure of his affair with Broadwell and his subsequent resignation as director of the CIA. Gen. Allen, who has denied any wrongdoing, was on tap to be NATO's supreme allied commander. That is on hold. (Haraz N. Ghanbari/AP Photo) less
