R | | Drama, Thriller, War
An attorney defends an officer on trial for ordering his troops to fire on civilians after they stormed a U.S. embassy in a third world country.
Colonel Terry L. Childers:
Yes they had weapons! You think there's a script for fighting a war without pissing somebody off? Follow the rules and nobody gets hurt? Yes, innocent people probably died. Innocent people always die but I did not exceed my orders.
As Col. Childers is lowering the US flag at the embassy, a rope can be seen at the end of the flag, near the top of it, keeping it extended as it's lowered.
