    I don't fault the individual solider that was working under orders. I fault the organization that made the order happen. I fault the whole thought process of 'too bad, so sad, it's too much work to try to sort out now.'
    Oh, I totally agree that the organization that made it happen was at fault. As soldiers, we were not at liberty to just walk up to a NCOIC or senior ranking official and go 'Hey Jack, tell ya what... how about I don't do this and we forget it even came up.'. We had to do what we were told to do, whether we felt it was morally justified or otherwise.

    I think that as time went by and wars started happening more, the trust and respect and ability to treat servicemembers decently went downhill and with that, this happens.
