The Pentagon has completed its ethics review targeting the top brass and plans to brief President Obama on the results, defense officials said.

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta ordered the review of the ethics training for general and flag officers on Nov. 15 following a spate of reported misconduct by several general and flag officers. That included the commanding general of the Afghanistan war effort, Marine Gen. John Allen, who is facing questions about allegedly flirtatious emails he traded with a Tampa socialite.

The review was led by Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs. Dempsey has forwarded his conclusions to Panetta, along with recommendations, said Pentagon spokesman George Little.

Panetta plans to brief the president on those recommendations soon, Little said. He declined to be more specific.
