See? The only thing wrong in this post is....

...that the USMC leadership wanted him behind bars. Trust me, they didn't. They wanted the entire incident behind them, but had they actually wanted him to get court martialed and convicted, he WOULD have been court martialed and convicted.

As far as the Marines surrendering, they were under the command of the Navy at Wake, the Army in the Philippines and in both locations were ordered to surrender.

I have no issue with your personal assessment of Pantano other than those two minor corrections.
