Synopsis
The central character, Maj. Woodrow Wilson Thornton, is brought before the Senate during an inquiry into unspecified covert foreign adventures he undertook on behalf of the administration. He believes it was his duty to carry out the administration's orders, and during the hearing he refuses to implicate his superiors. Eventually the Senate lets him go, with a mild rebuke, but he leaves the hearing defeated, having realized that he was used as a scapegoat.
