I think Viola's testimony through the tape is the most honest and had the most impact.

Tom's. Nearly everyone else lied. I did, however, really enjoy the two Korean War vets who illustrated so well that truth itself is elusive.

Characters who testified for the prosecution were funny - at least in a way they were. Their "truth" was so exaggerated and we knew who/what was the basis for their testimony. They made the trial almost a joke. It was Tom, in my opinion, and as carolt says above, the two Korean War vets who testified who had the most impact on the trial because they introduced truth and some sense of dignity to the proceeding.

My feeling is that Colonel Karl Eklund had the most impact on the trial and that he was the most honest person to testify on Dr. Tom Cage's behalf.

My vote goes for Colonel Karl Eklund who's testimony was riveting.

My vote also goes to the Colonel. First runner up would be Tom.

Colonel Karl Eklund! His testimony was the best part of the trial.
