Gen. John Allen has returned to Kabul to resume his duties as the commander of U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, more than a week after the Pentagon announced it was investigating potentially “inappropriate” correspondence between the four-star general and a woman linked to the David Petraeus sex scandal.
Lt. Col. Les Carroll, a spokesman for the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan, said Allen returned to work Wednesday.
Allen’s office in Kabul issued a brief statement saying he is happy to be back in time to celebrate Thanksgiving with his troops.
“The Defense Department inspector general’s investigation into certain communications by Gen. Allen continues,” it said. “Out of respect for that process, Gen. Allen will continue to refrain from commenting on those matters that may fall within the scope of the investigation.”
