To pretty much all of the people that did those things, they were just doing their job.

At the end of the day, they didn't have much choice in the matter, if they didn't do it then there was a good chance the country would have been invaded, and besides, if you're called up then your only choice is doing the work or going to jail (and having to do worse work).
