Gen. Allen Returns to Kabul as Email Probe Continues

There are more important things to deal with


US General John Allen, under investigation for potentially inappropriate emails with a woman linked to a CIA sex scandal, returned Wednesday to Kabul to take up his duties as commander of NATO forces in Afghanistan, his spokesman said.

"He returned today," Major David Nevers told AFP.

The Pentagon on November 13 announced a probe into the general's correspondence with Jill Kelley, a key figure in the sex scandal that forced the resignation this month of CIA director David Petraeus, a retired four-star officer.
