Late entry: An important read
Craig Roberts -- The Pendleton Eight:
"In my experience there are good officers and bad officers, and there are those who are good warriors and fight the good fight, and those who are political coat-tail hangers who are very mercenary with their morals and will do what is necessary to get promoted and advance, even at the expense of others. When the latter are in charge of an issue, such as this one, then the system of fairness and 'due process' suffers and those accused pay the price. In the mind of these types of officers, 'what do a few enlisted men mean when it comes to being promoted from lieutenant colonel to colonel, or colonel to general...they are expendable.'"
