Anybody smell anything wrong with this? Why would an investigator write a General an e-mail that says "IF THE CIRCUMSTANCES... BECOME PUBLIC."?

From the AP: Abizaid appeared to be the most direct in saying that the military mishandled the case, stating that his staff failed to bring to his attention a crucial private e-mail from then-Maj. Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal, who was investigating the case, alerting him that fratricide was strongly suspected. The e-mail to Abizaid -- with copies sent to Kensinger and Brown -- warned that he should alert the president and top Pentagon officials "to preclude any unknowing statements by our country's leaders which might cause public embarrassment if the circumstances of Corporal Tillman's death becomes public."

Here's my question... If there was no cover up.... then why would Maj. Gen. Stanley A. McChrystal write to General Abizaid "IF the circumstances of Corporal Tillman's death becomes public."???

Shouldn't the Officer who was INVESTIGATING the case who KNEW THAT FRATRICIDE WAS STRONGLY SUSPECTED have written WHEN THE CIRCUMSTANCES of Corporal Tillman's death BECOME PUBLIC" instead of IF?

Using the word IF tells me that he knew they were trying to cover this up. And now they've hung a lower ranking official out to dry, just like they did with Abu Ghraib. Jesus these guys are crooks.
