WASHINGTON - The man who ran the US war effort in Afghanistan until this past weekend, General John Allen, is weighing whether he still wants the military's top job in Europe after being cleared of professional misconduct in a Pentagon probe, officials said on Wednesday.

Just days before his confirmation hearing for the European post last November, Allen became ensnared in the scandal that prompted retired General David Petraeus to resign as CIA director. Allen's emails with a Florida socialite emerged in the FBI investigation and were referred to the Pentagon.

A Pentagon probe last month cleared him of any wrongdoing and the White House announced it would proceed with Allen's nomination as NATO's supreme allied commander in Europe.
