In the 1980's, famed former CBS producer Fred Friendly aired a series of great, thought provoking shows on ethics.
My favorite is a 2 part series:
Under Orders, Under Fire (Part I)
How do we wage war when the enemy dresses as civilians and childrenthrow bombs? Generals William Westmoreland, David Jones, and BrentScowcroft, correspondents Peter Jennings and Mike Wallace, and othersquestion the duty to follow orders and a commander's obligation toprotect soldiers.
Under Orders, Under Fire (Part II)
The carnage of My Lai raises the issue of confidentiality between thesoldier, his religious confessor, and military justice. Generals debatethe clash between military tribunals and the right of confidentialitywith Chaplain Timothy Tatum of the U.S. Army War College, the ReverendJ. Bryan Hehir of the U.S. Catholic Conference, and others.
