The soldier who blew the whistle on government approved torture at Abu Ghraib is reaping what is so often the reward for courage: the contempt of his peers.

Says Engelbach, "I agree that his actions…were no good and borderline traitor." He understands Darby was reporting a crime. "But do you put the enemy above your buddies? I wouldn’t."
I just can't get my head around the thought process of people who think that talking about or admitting a crime is worse than the crime itself. If you are a soldier, your duty is to defend America, not your buddies.
