Two U.S. officials say just a few of the emails between the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan and a Florida woman are potentially problematic, and the vast majority of the 20,000-plus pages of documents reviewed by investigators were routine.

The disclosure puts a clearer perspective on the breadth of questionable communications between the Gen. John Allen and Tampa socialist Jill Kelley. Officials have described some emails as inappropriate and "suggestive." Allen has said he's done nothing wrong.

The officials were not authorized to publicly discuss the investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Kelley is a key player in the scandal that uncovered David Petraeus' affair with his biographer and led the CIA chief to resign.

Allen's nomination to lead U.S. European Command is on hold while the investigation continues.
