ONE of the socialite twins at the centre of the David Petraeus sex scandal took taxpayer-funded military flights with the second US general involved, it has been claimed.

Jill Kelley, who prompted the inquiry leading to Mr Petraeus's resignation as CIA director, made journeys on military-owned jets, including a flight to Washington with General John Allen, the commander in Afghanistan, claimed her twin, Natalie Khawam.

"I look forward to the day when I'm able to explain what really happened in this matter". She wept while paying tribute to her sister, whom she described as "the kindest, most generous person I know".

General Allen and Mrs Kelley, both of whom are married, are alleged to have exchanged flirtatious emails.

These were discovered by agents investigating threatening messages allegedly sent to Mrs Kelley by Paula Broadwell, Mr Petraeus's mistress and biographer. (© Daily Telegraph, London)
