When our Task Force changed names (from Dragon to Eagle) and mission (we were given Civil Affiars and Security responsibility for a 100km square area around BAF) I moved over to the Civil Affairs job (S-5) and found that while dealing with CERP (Commander's Emergency Response Program) funds, West was sloppy, but not criminal. Probably because I had oversight of the money...and he knew I didn't care for him one whit.
Just before we left Afghanistan, one of his partners in crime was caught. He remained behind, having a nice chat with the Criminal Investigative Division (CID) people. Apparently CID got enough from him to set up the investigation that swept up West, Patton and their Afghan comrades in crime.
The TV report is mostly correct - some errors; West was not given a BSM for valor, he was not in charge of Base Operations (there were two different Colonels that were, and I think the second one scared West a bit, he seemed to lay lower when that Colonel was in command) and a "Bronze Medal" is something given out at the Olympics a "Bronze Star" is the award in question.
