Another Guantanamo prosecutor bails out in protest.

Excerpt:

“His work was top secret, making it impossible to talk to family or friends. So the devout Catholic — working away from home — contacted a priest online.

Even if he had no doubt about the guilt of the accused, he wrote in an August e-mail, ‘I am beginning to have grave misgivings about what I am doing, and what we are doing as a country. . . .

‘I no longer want to participate in the system, but I lack the courage to quit. I am married, with children, and not only will they suffer, I’ll lose a lot of friends.'”
