Charles C. Thompson II, a former television producer, reports about the Navy investigation of the onboard explosion that killed 47 men on the USS Iowa April 19, 1989. He finds that "a conspiracy existed at the highest levels of the Navy to find (gunner's mate Clayton) Hartwig guilty in order to deflect blame from senior commanders who allowed such deplorable conditions to exist on a man-of-war."
