Know who your enemy is

The news that Col Jorge Mendonca has left the Army saddens me because all the reports that I have about him (both from the press and military friends) were glowing. It seems that in its desire to be seen to take a firm line with any alligators of wrong-doing the Army has lost one of its brightest and best.

I do not condone the abuse of prisoners but I can’t quite shake the feeling that this was more about show than justice.
