Re: U.S. officer cites Constitution in refusing Iraq duty
Lieutenant Watada conceded that the military could not function if individual members decided which war was just. But, he wrote to Colonel Townsend, he owed his allegiance to a â€śhigher powerâ€ť â€” the Constitution â€” based on the values the Army had taught him: â€śloyalty, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity and personal courage.â€ť
Lieutenant Watada said he had volunteered to serve in Afghanistan, which he regarded as an unambiguous war linked to the Sept. 11 attacks. The request was denied.
