Why was he AWOL? THink about it! If he isn't around he doesn't have to make any decisions or answer any questions THEN whatever happens, happens, and he can't do anything to stop it. It's like a man that plans a murder and thinks if he isn't in the vicinity or there when it happens then he won't be caught and found guilty! It's the same thing here - IF ovomit isn't anywhere around and 4 Americans get killed then he can't be blamed can he? Yet he could have planned the entire thing to happen exactly as it happened! He just provides himself an alibi and thinks that protects him from being blamed! NOT!! He is as guillty as sin! I think he was 'missing' on purpose!
