If you were an American investigator how do you tell your CO that the US will have to

being about politics and money rather than the two girls.
It would be nice if apology letters could be written without money being involved,

How do we know who made the mistake?
It could have been the soldiers in fact.
The right thing would be to set up a joint investigation body
to look into the matter.
