Withers: I’m Not Involved
TIRANA, June 24 - The U.S. ambassador to Albania, on Tuesday, denied allegations by a senior House Democrat that he had approved the removal of evidence of the illegal Chinese origins of ammunition being shipped from Albania to Afghanistan by a U.S. defense contractor. Ambassador John L. Withers said, in a statement, that he was studying “the content of that letter and will prepare a full refutation of any allegations against the U.S. Embassy or himself once he has done so.“ The ambassador said he was “a steadfast believer that a fair examination of the evidence will lead, in the end, to the truth. He applies that principle equally to himself and to others in the absolute knowledge that the evidence in this matter, fully presented, will dissolve any and every assertion made against him, his staff, or his government.“
