Marine Gen. John Allen, a 1976 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, served this country admirably for more than 36 years. Now he has announced he wants to retire.

The 59 year-old former top officer in Afghanistan cited his wife's "chronic" illness and said he wants to devote more time to helping his beloved Kathy cope with serious health problems, including an undisclosed "auto-immune disorder."

We join the vast majority of Americans who pray the general's wife will get better, and thank him for his service to this country. But one would have to be pathetically naive not to realize that a major factor in Allen's sudden departure is the mess he got into last year with a "generals groupie" in Florida.

THE GENERAL AND THE SOCIALITE

It's "bad judgment" at minimum to exchange more than 20,000 e-mails with the mysterious Jill Kelley, a Tampa socialite who threw lavish parties for top CENTCOM brass. This status-seeker freaked out when she got "threatening" e-mails from another gal, the much better-looking LTC Paula Broadwell, USAR, and called in the FBI.

The over-rated media-darling GEN David Petraeus had to resign his new post as CIA director when it was revealed he and his much-younger lover had an affair while Broadwell was in Kabul writing a fawning book about him.

We are not in the least bit surprised that both Petraeus and Broadwell, who could have been brought up on charges under the Uniform Code of Military Justice for committing adultery and conduct unbecoming an officer, have not even received a slap-on-the-wrist from the military. Once again, "different spanks for different ranks."

CLEARED BY PENTAGON INSPECTOR GENERAL

In the case of Gen. Allen, we wonder how a man entrusted with leading our war effort in Afghanistan could find the time to communicate so often with a woman not his wife. A small number of the e-mails, informed sources told MilitaryCorruption.com, contain language that could be described as "inappropriate," "flirtatious" and "suggestive."

But in the final analysis, the Pentagon I. G., as we knew they would, gave Allen a clean bill of health and cleared him of all wrong-doing. However, that didn't come without cost.

Allen, widely thought to be a lock to become supreme commander of NATO after completing his Afghanistan assignment, saw his coveted appointment held up. It was said the job was his again, after the I.G. investigation concluded, but President Barack Obama, the commander-in-chief, was reportedly not amused.

Despite warm words of praise for his retiring general, those in the know say Allen got a "gentle push" toward the exit door.

The story about his wife's illness is true, but Allen's poor judgment sealed his fate. His career was for all intensive purposes over when headlines of his questionable communications with Jill Kelley hit the headlines.
