"...Nevertheless these were not the offenses ["flaunting her sex"] for
which she [Koch] was being tried and so I reduced her sentence, expecting
the reaction which came. Perhaps I erred in judgement but no one can share
the responsibility of a reviewing officer. Later the Senate committee
which unanimously criticized this action heard witnesses who gave
testimony not contained in the record before me. I could take action only
on that record...." (Clay, _Decision in Germany_, p.254.)
