They'll probably just throw money from the unlimited budget for Satanism at the victims, until they go away.  But as far as holding a Nietzschean superman (or superwoman) accountable ... are you serious?  The important thing is to give them the opportunity to conquer their consciences by doing something so low that it would never even enter the minds of most humans.  The inability of most people to imagine such scumminess ensures that few people take such claims seriously.

The same goes for those Marines who made that pornographic video of themselves desecrating "Taliban" bodies, which was explained away as typical "rogue" behavior, which it wasn't - it was qualitatively unique, and as some high military officials have said, despicable.  At least one commentator compared it to the Abu Ghraib outrage.
