Military lawyer Lieutenant Daniel Kaffee defends Marines accused of murder. They contend they were acting under orders. Judge Randolph : [to Kaffee from the judge's bench] Consider yourself in contempt! Kaffee : Colonel Jessup, did you order the Code Red?
Judge Randolph : You don't have to answer that question! Jessup : I'll answer the question! Jessup : You want answers? Kaffee : I think I'm entitled to. Jessep : You want answers? Jessup : Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who's gonna do it? You, Lt. I have a greater responsibility than you could possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago and you curse the Marines.
You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know; that Santiago's death, while tragic, probably saved lives. You don't want the truth because deep down in places you don't talk about at parties, you want me on that wall. You need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something.
You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide, and then questions the manner in which I provide it! I would rather you just said "thank you" and went on your way, Otherwise, I suggest you pick up a weapon and stand a post. Kaffee : Did you order the code red? Jessup : I did the job I In.

In this dramatic courtroom thriller, LT Daniel Kaffee, a Navy lawyer who has never seen the inside of the courtroom, defends two stubborn Marines who have been accused of murdering a colleague.
Kaffee is known as being lazy and had arranged for a plea bargain. Downey's Aunt Ginny appoints Cmdr. Galloway to represent him. The team rounds up many facts and Kaffee is discovering that he is really cut out for trial work. Santiago was basically a screw-up. At Gitmo, screw-ups aren't tolerated.
Especially by Col. Nathan Jessup. In Cuba, Jessup and two senior officers try to give all the help they can, but Kaffee knows something's fishy. In the conclusion of the film, the fireworks are set off by a confrontation between Jessup and Kaffee. In the heart of the nation's capital, in a courthouse of the U.
Rated R for language. Did you know Edit. Lance Corporal David Cox and nine other enlisted men tied up a fellow Marine and severely beat him for snitching to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. Cox was acquitted and later honorably discharged. In , David Cox mysteriously vanished, and his bullet-riddled body was found three months later. His murder remains unsolved. Goofs A Judge Advocate has the same qualified immunity as any other attorney arguing a defense.
The premise that he could be subject to Court Martial for Professional Misconduct if he accuses Jessop and Kendrick of a crime is preposterous. He could be prosecuted however for failing to do so if it was necessary in the defense of the accused and if he, in good faith, believes that they may be guilty of said crime.
