When help was sought it was granted. In the case of Lindsey Graham it was slanted.

Dear Secretary of the Army of and Members the Clemency and Parole Board,
How can the military order soldiers to go on an illegal mission and no officers held accountable? The military was once a proud profession. We have the best and brightest now with an all voluntary service. Why would anybody want to join when our government feels the need to play PC games and sacrifice our young men?
I’m asking you to please reconsider this issue in light of a young man following orders and has paid dearly for it. Had Corey Clagett been a cold blooded murderer he would have killed the Iraqi’s without giving it a second thought.
He didn’t do that. He took them prisoner, and asked his superiors what to do, they said kill them, admittedly an illegal order. What really was he to do? Enough is enough, please find it in your hearts to show compassion.
I am writing to indicate my support for Corey Clagett in his upcoming clemency hearing on June 3, 2011. After reading about Corey’s case and learning the circumstances of his incarceration, I feel a miscarriage of justice has occurred. I hope you find the arguments of Corey’s attorney, Tim Parlatore, as persuasive as I do.
First, I believe the American justice system should not punish soldiers, fighting to protect that very system, in the same way it punishes those who commit heinous crimes here within our own borders. A killing in the midst of war, particularly when following direct orders, is not the same as a premeditated murder in the United States, and the punishment should reflect this key difference.
Second, instead of being incarcerated, Corey vitally needs psychological treatment from the VA. Corey may have committed a wrong, but the four years in solitary confinement he has already served have been more than enough, and he now deserves rehabilitating treatment.
Third, as I understand it, Corey’s sentence is much longer than those who committed the crime with him, and in particular the man who ordered Corey to kill the Iraqis instead of taking them prisoner. This information came as a complete shock to me. It appears to have been brought about by a last-minute and inadequate change in legal representation. This hardly seems to be justice.
Finally, I believe that Corey should receive a lower sentence, at the very least in line with those of his peers, given his efforts from the very beginning to cooperate with the Government. Corey’s cooperation demonstrates he took responsibility for his actions.
Thank you for taking the time to read about a cause about which I care deeply. As an American who appreciates the sacrifices made on my behalf by our troops in hostile lands, I implore you to grant Corey’s clemency petition and release him.
