White House Will Proceed With Allen’s Nomination As NATO Commander

WASHINGTON (January 23, 2013)--The White House said Wednesday it will go ahead with Gen. John Allen's nomination to become NATO commander, which was put on hold while the Pentagon investigated Allen's e-mail exchanges with a Florida woman linked to a sex scandal that led David Petraeus to resign as CIA director.

The Pentagon said Tuesday that its inspector general determined that the e-mail exchanges did not amount to conduct unbecoming an officer.

White House press secretary Jay Carney said Wednesday he hopes the Senate will consider Allen's nomination "in a timely manner."
