Absolutely amazing. And people think that when the time comes military will refuse to turn their weapons upon their own citizens due to some sense of morality. Really gives new meaning to "just following orders."

This isn't Hollywood, where you're going to have to break all the rules and play a damned spy game to get justice. The Army isn't homogeneous. There is independence in CID and IG. Their job is to police the Army. The only way that nothing would happen is if they were not involved. I guarantee that every crime that has been committed, that has gone unpunished, is a result of not letting CID, IG, and the MPs in on it.

If my command didn't do anything about it I would bring in external sources like CID, and IG.

Shame on you.
