I wouldn't call that whitewashing. If anything it makes him look completely culpable for his actions after picking up Frostmourne. Going by the game it looked like he basically lost free will after doing so. The book suggests otherwise.

It is the soldier, not the poet, Who has given us freedom of speech.
It is the soldier, not the organizer, Who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.
It is the soldier, Who salutes the flag, Who serves beneath the flag,
And whose coffin is draped by the flag, Who allows the protestor to burn the flag."
