The Army is investigating Brig. Gen. Jeffrey A. Sinclair, who has been reassigned from Afghanistan back to Fort Bragg, officials said Friday.

Earlier this month, Sinclair was removed from his job as the 82nd Airborne Division's deputy commanding general for support in Afghanistan. He had been deputy commander since July 2010.

Sinclair has returned to Fort Bragg for his assignment as special assistant to the commanding general of the 18th Airborne Corps and Fort Bragg, Abel said.

The incident is the first in recent memory in which a Fort Bragg general was removed from a position and investigated.

Beastie Boys- Paul's Boutique

It's sad that Adam Yauch passed away. His charity work for the Tibetans and music will live on through other people. RIP MCA.

They say disclosures of inappropriate relationships between Tillis' staff and the lobbyists raise questions about conflicts of interest and undue influence on the legislative process.

Chief of staff Charles Thomas and policy adviser Amy Hobbs were forced out of their jobs in the past week by disclosures of the relationships with separate lobbyists.
