Associated Press:

An Army dog handler convicted of tormenting Iraqis at
Abu Ghraib prison with his snarling animal was unrepentant about the abuse charges at his sentencing hearing, telling a court-martial jury that soldiers aren’t supposed to be “soft and cuddly.”

Perhaps not, but they aren’t supposed to decide for themselves what the foreign policy of the United States is, and like every other American, they’re supposed to obey the law … er, well, that is unless you’re George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Alberto Gonzalez, or Condaleeza Rice.
