When we isolate the circumstances surrounding this blunder we come 
across as insensitive. Every Ambassador that followed the production of 
F14 Media knows we encountered peculiar problems and had to deal with 
them impromptu.  We all know its a mess ... we should not dwell there. 
I'd rather say thanks to Christoph for stepping up and clearing it. Its 
done.  Let's discuss better way out and be more proactive about it.

Again, the we all expressed dismay when the Ambassador in-charge left on 
vacation soon after receiving those.  Let us not make this look like its 
been the routine.  OR HAS IT BEEN THIS WAY ALL THE WHILE ... I am new (I 
may be naive ... but I witnessed some of those moments)

What is GA? Is it right to say 'Fixed'? or should be 'Agreed upon'?  The 
two don't mean the same.
