"Alright, well judging by some of the previous input, I don't quite have the ethos that a lot of you do, but I might still have a thing or two to contribute.

"Now would you be so kind as to respond to my questions? Do you think a military intervention would have been possible, and what do you think would be an appropriate way to learn from the incident and prevent it from occurring again?"
"You're right, I apologize. I think that it was handled less than perfectly. With regard to what they called it immediately after, I believe that this was done so that the perpetrators could be properly tracked down (playing dumb to catch the…"
