Friday, August 7, 2009

This article is based on hundreds of pages of documents, including e-mail, Army investigative reports, legal briefs, sworn statements and other material, including transcripts from a Fairfax County Circuit Court case and written remarks from an Army spokesman. Many of the documents were obtained from the federal Merit Systems Protection Board. The article also relied on interviews with, among others, George Raymond, Barbara Strong, Christopher Abel, an attorney for EII, and Hermann Spitzer, a former Army official who conducted the first formal inquiry into the ties between Raymond and Catherine Campbell.
