American Colonel Writes to Spanish Colonel
15 March 2010
Responding to a document first published here on 08 March, U.S. Army Colonel Robert J. Ulses writes to Spanish Army Colonel Jesus De Miguel Sebastian.
The letter from Colonel Ulses contradicts the previous memo by a U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel.
Risking liberties to read between the lines, the letter might translate: “Situation rectified. Moving to tamp down the controversy. Let’s move on.”
Clearly it’s social grease, designed to spackle over rough spots. Spots that could have gotten our troops killed. I’ll ask some of our people in the next week or so if the situation has improved. You’ll be the first to know.
