Starker, he was upset because of this. As he saw it following orders to torture prisoners into giving up vital intel was a legitmate activity. Much the same as what is rumoured and mildly substantiated to be happening in the "war on terror" today. But the abandoning of prisoners and claiming they were all accounted for was unpardonable. A treasonous act abandoning soldiers to rot away in enemy hands. That's why he cried.
