Finally speaks of higher ups telling him to humiliate prisoners.

I am glad he was convicted but it bothered me that they could then say he was a rouge. I don't believe that. The REAL responsiblity lies in his superieors and the lack of law and order about prisoner treatment. But I do believe, like at the Nuremberg trials, even if following orders in the end you have to be responsible for your actions.

And I ask you Earl and others in the military, how many soldiers DON'T act on orders? I mean how many just up and say "I want to do this and that...and be out of line" just on a whim? for fun as they prosecution said?
I don't get the feeling that's the nature of a soldier.
