Regardless of whether it was simply a case of friends or not....the point of the matter is that it was over official email channels...military email! As all military members should be aware of, everything is subject to being monitored. Also, before any military member is allowed to access their systems when arriving at a new base, they have to go through "training" where they have to become aware of what constitutes offical and acceptable email practices. Profanity is never allowed, nor is unacceptable language. It should be official at all times. If this was on private email, via gmail, hotmail, etc...that's another story...but almost exclusively, those web-based email programs are barred from being accessed while on the military net.

it is common for troops deployed to send emails home over msn, yahoo and similar web based email.

So why are you assuming that it was on the military net?
Far as I know _NO_ONE_ has said that.

General John Allen, the man in charge of running the war in Afghanistan, apparently sent 30,000 emails to Florida socialite Jill Kelley and many of them were inappropriate. Sources have told Fox News the content of those emails was essentially the same thing as digital phone sex.

American commander in Afghanistan Gen. John Allen, facing an internal investigation for "inappropriate communications" with a woman at the heart of the David Petraeus controversy, engaged in much more than "flirtatious" behavior, sources tell Fox News -- with one official even likening the email exchanges to "phone sex."
