Gary Myers, an attorney for Sgt. Evan Vela, said Monday his client had acted "pursuant to orders."

This is out of control to have programs like this being perpetrated on civilians. What will they do over here?
I was going to quote a particular sentance of this story. The whole story is totally Un-American.

Well, mr. Bush stated that they are killing at least 1,500 insurgents every month. What do you think they will do when they run out of insurgents... they can't let the kill score go down now can they. They just have to alter their definitions enough to include curious civillians.
