Here's why I suspect that it is. Compare and contrast, the "need to investigate":
"People know what I mean". I fear that I do.
Contrast with "I can hear you":
Ambassadors are an odd, feudal holdover in the American political system: they answer solely to, and serve solely at the pleasure of the President. It is the single vestigial remnant of the old European monarchical system on these shores. There's quite good reason for this: the Ambassador's person is inviolate, and wars have begun when an Ambassador was abused.
I normally post a country music song on Saturday, but even someone as cynical and jaded as I find myself nauseated by the idea that a commander in chief might have let Americans - including an Ambassador - be butchered while armed forces were standing by, able to rescue them. Today, my heart isn't in it. There's music a-plenty, but not if those who need to won't listen.
Thus may poor fools believe false teachers: Though those that are betray'd Do feel the treason sharply, yet the traitor stands in worse case of woe.
- William Shakespeare, Cymbeline Act III Scene IV
