I LOVE our men and women who serve our country. When @realDonaldTrump talks about pardoning soldiers who turn on our values, he sends an awful message that it’s okay to break rank, abandon international conventions, and become the war criminals we fight. This is a bad precedent.
Army Veteran here - I completely agree, but would add one other thing. It also exposes our soldiers to greater risk. NOTHING starts/grows an insurgent movement faster than indiscriminate attacks on civilians. It's why the Pentagon was so focused on winning hearts and minds.
