Of course the DAM is the one who makes the decision; after all, he's
the only one with the authority to make the decision (read the
constitution).  The AM prepares a report which the DAM uses to form a
decision, but he doesn't necessarily have to form the same conclusions
as the AM.  Also note that the DAM's decision can be overridden.

Right, just take Eray as an example (and note that the NM committee
agreed 100% with the DAM's decision; yet the DAM got all the blame).
