Cross examination by Aubrey Daniels:
Q: Was Lieutenant Calley's judgment impaired beyond normal limits on March 16th, 1968?
A: What do you mean by "normal limits ?
Q: Was his judgment impaired on March sixteenth?
A: Yes, sir.
A: He could not challenge the legality or illegality of the orders given by Captain Medina. Captain Medina had become a father figure to him.
Q: Did he suffer from an irresistible impulse?
A: He was compelled to carry out that order without challenging that order. But I would not call it an irresistible impulse.
Q: Could he disobey that order?
A: No, he could not disobey that order. He was like an automaton, a robot. When the order came to stop shooting, the party's over, he stopped. But I would not classify it as an irresistible impulse because it went on for several hours later
Q: Was he conscious of his actions?
A: Yes, absolutely.
A: You meant did he know right from wrong? Yes he knew right from wrong.
Q: Was Lieutenant Calley psychotic?
Q: Was Lieutenant Calley neurotic?
Q: Did Lieutenant Calley know right from wrong?
Q: Could Lieutenant Calley adhere to the right?
A: He had a compulsion to carry out his orders, to do his duty as an officer.
Q: Isn't that characteristic of a soldier?
A: Who else has done what Lieutenant Calley is alleged to have done? ....
A: He proceeded to carry out his orders.
A: One was to order Meadlo and another man to--
Q: What other man?
A: I'll have to check my notes.
Q: You do that.
Q: Are these your notes?
A: Part of them. They're base on my notes, on facts given me by Lieutenant Calley that I gave to Mr. Latimer.
Q: Did Lieutenant Calley tell you all of these facts about March sixteenth?
A: Well, I think I got more from the newspaper, radio, and television.
Q: You mean, you knew about what happened on March sixteenth before you talked to Lieutenant Calley?
A: I'd have to be pretty stupid not to know.
Q: Well, can you remember what he told you that wasn't in the newspapers and wasn't in the hypothetical statement?
A: No, all I can remember is what's in the hypothetical statement.
Q: Didn't you ask him a lot of questions?
Q: What were some of those questions?
A: I don't remember.
Q: Why not? That's not so hard, is it? It doesn't take much energy to remember what you asked.
A: I spent by energy preparing for your cross-examination.
Q: Well, doctor, did you write down those questions so we can see them?
A: The questions weren't in written form.
