Moral Ethics In The Military

Aired 1/25/12 on KPBS Midday Edition.

GUEST

Dr. Martin Cook, Stockdale Chair of Professional Military Ethics, US Naval War College and author of "The Moral Warrior: Ethics and Service in the U.S. Military"

Transcript

The subject of military ethics is very much in the news this week as we grapple with the conclusion of the longest running criminal trial stemming from the Iraq war. The Haditha trial right here in San Diego at Camp Pendleton resulted in nothing more than a demotion. The nation is also trying to come to terms with a video of Marines urinating on Taliban corpses. We are fortunate that a prominent military ethicist Dr. Martin Cook is in town today for the 15th annual James Bond Stockdale Leadership Symposium tonight at the University of San Diego.

Thanks to KPBS for attempting a rational and balanced look at military ethics.

Too often in this town, anyone who "dares" to question anything military-related is slapped down and discouraged from healthy debate.

We sure as heck won't see the mainstream San Diego media controlled by Her Papa Manchester and his henchmen covering anything of substance or controversial.
