I think that must depend on the soldier.  Black Ops are carried out by military personnel, the School of Americas, torture, assassination...I wondered what Webb's take on these kinds of things was/is.  From my very limited experience, I think the "good soldiers" follow the rules and are kept out of the "do what we have to do" loops--Abu Ghraib being an example--

"Special Forces"....
