There is a problem here. He is an American military officer and yet he is keeping Iraqis as prisoners?

But Iraq has an independent government under which to keep Iraqis prisoner. Why are we in the prison business?

Oh, I forgot the Iraqi government is a useless puppet we installed there.

I wonder who therefore is running Iraq. After all two million barrels of oil is pumped and sold from there everyday. Makes one wonder where the oil is sold to and who collects the Iraqi money from such sales.

There was a report in national news during this winter about accounting discrepancies of the oil money by Americans.

Greed and lust are powerful motivations even for the "highly trained". Some just cannot overcome the temptation(s). Seems the "don't ask, don't tell" applies to corruptness, also.
