A senior Air Force general who ran the aerial campaign against ISIS has been fired from his job and will retire after an investigation found that he had an unprofessional relationship with a lower-ranking female officer.

The Air Force said Thursday that Lt. Gen. John Hesterman, the assistant vice chief of staff, was found guilty of misconduct for emails he exchanged with an Air force lieutenant colonel between March 2010 and May 2011.
