A federal report has shed further light into why a Fort Carson commander was briefly suspended earlier this year.
The report says three officers accused Col. Brian Pearl of making insensitive remarks during a meeting with female soldiers that he called to address sexual assault and harassment reports.
Pearl was prevented from joining his troops in Afghanistan during the probe into the incident. The Mountain Post says it "thoroughly investigated" accusations of policy violations and found them to be unsupported by evidence.
The colonel was later allowed to join his troops in Kandahar, Afghanistan.
