Obama proceeds with Allen nomination as NATO commander

Published: 01.24.13, 00:56 / Israel News

President Barack Obama will proceed with General John Allen's nomination as NATO's supreme allied commander in Europe after the Pentagon cleared him of professional misconduct over emails to a Florida socialite, the White House said on Wednesday.


Allen, the outgoing commander of US. and NATO forces in Afghanistan, was ensnared in the scandal that prompted retired General David Petraeus to resign as CIA director last year after his affair with his biographer, Paula Broadwell, was exposed. (AP)
