Rules of Engagement. From the ethical standpoint, one of the most disgusting movies ever made. Basically, the message is that a soldier is allowed to kill a bunch of civilians and that nobody should held him accountable for it, since, hey, he has it tough doing his job, OK? And that only other soldiers can understand him and will necessarily excuse him, while the lowly civilians have no right judging him for his war crimes.
The message was rather that he was innocent and someone destroyed the tape to prove it. But since you are innocent until proven guilty, he was released. The opening scene shows the audience what actually happened, and throughout the film the audience witnesses all the lies in the courtroom.
Not in the movie I saw (granted, a long time ago). So who did kill those people then?
Treason, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.
