Pentagon Investigation Clears Gen. Allen of Improper Behavior in Email Exchanges - Open Channel
The Defense Department’s inspector general has found that allegations that Gen. John Allen engaged in inappropriate behavior in emails he exchanged with Tampa, Fla., socialite Jill Kelley were unsubstantiated.
“The IG cleared him,” a defense official told NBC News, speaking on condition of anonymity.
Allen, the current commander of NATO forces in Afghanistan, has been nominated to be Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, but that promotion was put on hold when the IG investigation began. The defense official stressed that no decision has been made yet on whether his nomination will go forward again.
