General Allen says he'll cooperate with inquiry


WASHINGTON (AP) - The top general in Afghanistan says he will "fully cooperate" with the investigation ordered into communications he had with a Tampa socialite at the center of the military's sex scandal.

Marine Corps General John Allen released a statement through his lawyer Wednesday night saying he'll cooperate and that he instructed his staff to do the same.

The lawyer, Colonel John G. Baker, says General Allen wants questions in the probe resolved as quickly and completely as possible.

The Pentagon inspector general is looking into emails exchanged between General Allen and Jill Kelley.
