Iraq War Veterans: Commanders Encourage War Crimes
Returning Iraqi War veterans have been charging that the unofficial Army policy on the ground in Iraq is to murder civilians, in short, war crimes. Is this condoned and encouraged because the military feels they are the biggest ape in the jungle and who will dare prosecute them?
The answer to those who feel they are beyond morality, beyond accountability: the Universe will dare.
"The killing of innocent civilians is policy. It's unit policy and it's Army policy. It's not official policy, but it's what's happens on the ground everyday. It's what unit commanders individually encourage." -- Iraq War veteran Mike Blake
