What we're going to tell you Commander, may come as a surprise, but it must be held in the utmost secrecy, and its importance will become obvious. I think you'll understand. All charges against your boys have been dropped.
They're gone, dropped, never happened.
What do you want me to do, Captain?
Cover it up, sweep it under the rug. Take your men back to your carrier first thing in the morning, keep their mouths shut. Beyond that, you can do what you want to with them, but this affair's over.
May I ask the captain, why?
Because the President of the United States, Richard M. Nixon is quite irritated at the opposition for leaving the peace table. He has just ordered Operation Linebacker ll; the unrestricted bombing of all military targets in North Vietnam. We'd look like real idiots court-martialing an A-crew for doing what the President of the United States just told us to do. If even a rumor got back to the press, you can understand the ramifications.
Yes. Yes, sir.
