Comments: Well?

My own opinion is that justice was done. I understand the logic of doing what needs to be done to protect soldiers, but when it goes to this level, a price should be paid. It cost LTC West his career, but he saved his soldiers' lives. That's a trade I think any officer should be more than happy to make.

I can certainly understand that point of view, Andrew. And it's really the "stand by and watch his men beat up a prisoner" that bothers me more than faking the guy out with a gunshot.

I dunno. It couldn't have been easy for the officer, that's true.
