    I read this earlier today. Sad string of events. I hope they rewrite protocol and have better supervision and enforcement in the future.

    Something is fishy here. Everyone says no rules were or protocol were broken and the whole investigation is based on an unverified and anyonymous "whistleblower" who relates an unverified account of a bone being sawed off so the body would fit in a uniform. I get the impression the administration is trying to make an issue about it to cover for the mess the Country is in.
