Lt. Col. Darrel Vandeveld And Gitmo

I was really drawn into this story, "Guantanamo a stain on US military," after watching the BBC the other night. I'm always intrigued by instances when one's faith clashes with their work.

BBC News Security Correspondent Gordon Corera wrote this in the opening of his extremely well-written article:

For Lt. Col. Darrel Vandeveld, a devout Catholic, the twin responsibilities of religious faith and military duty led to a profound moral crisis.

The rest of the story is here.
