Recently serving in Iraq as part of the Army’s 1st Battalion, 24th Infantry Regiment.  While helping to secure the city of Mosul, one of his roles was to stand a top an armored vehicle and dispense seemingly random judgments upon the military-age young men which other soldiers had rounded up.  In reality, an informant sat in the armored vehicle with live video feed identifying those who had joined the growing insurgency.  The fine line between stopping insurgents and unfairly punishing innocents is difficult to maintain when casting such wide net.
