21. Yes, this account needs to be CORROBORATED
What I find curious about this is that there's no mention of the prime contractor's name in this. Who, as a part of a USAID contract, would hire John Bolton to fly to Moscow and Kyrgyzstan on short notice to browbeat a lower-level administrator for weeks over a complaint that the contractor wasn't adequately funding its operation (the implication being that the contractor had been paid by USAID but was holding the money, instead)?

Yes, it's unfortunate that that information was not included. Corroboration of the contents of this letter is important. I am hoping that a professional journalist or a congressional aide will look into this - contact the Kos diarist about her friend, then ask the letter writer for more documents and contacts who can support her story. We don't want to be burned with a sincere-sounding but fictitious letter. But if it is legitimate, it MUST be publicized.
