This is a fascinating look behind the scenes of a modern military controversy. Here's key section, which gave me chills:
Q. Do you think this video hurt the Marine Corps’ reputation?
A. Well, it depends on what your idea is of what a Marine should be. If your idea of a Marine is a real fancy-looking guy in uniform that does snap and pop with a rifle and looks real pretty, then yeah, it probably hurt. But if your idea of what a Marine should be is the enemy’s worst f---ing nightmare, then I don’t think it did. But you can’t have both.
