    “The investigation undermines the right of servicemembers to petition the government, and appears to violate the statutory protections for military whistleblowers,” Hunter and Speier said in a Feb. 11 letter.
    Amerine, who is involved in Defense Department hostage recovery efforts, said in his Facebook commentary that the FBI “formally complained to the Army about me reporting to Congress about their failed efforts” to recover Warren Weinstein, an aid worker who was accidentally killed in a U.S. drone strike near the Pakistani border earlier this year, and Caitlan Coleman, an American who was traveling in Afghanistan while pregnant when she was kidnapped in 2012.

    The shooter was later found to be white.

    I think these spy agencies are too big for their britches. He was reporting to congress which is supposed to be a MUCH higher authority than themselves. They seem to be out to punish people simply to save face and aren't much interested in making their practices work better.
