Not a war criminal but a courageous, responsible, accountable and honorable leader. He did what was needed to save the men under his command and turned himself in to his superiors...then he was relieved of command...as he knew would happen. He just believed that his men deserved to make it back home and simply used a "bluff" that didn't hurt his prisoner to get that needed information. He was as valiant in his conduct as an American as we could ever want. He did what was right and stood by his decision. We need more like him in Congress not less.
