I can't remember where I have seen it, but I think it was a fairly official source (Insider maybe?) that stated that the clones were not genetically programmed to carry out Order 66, but conditioned to do so (and the clones were conditioned in the extreme sense). They were loyal to the Republic, not the Jedi directly. Order 66 indicated that the Jedi were in fact traitors to the Republic, and so the clones felt the need to eliminate that threat. In essense, the clones were just following orders to eliminate a threat to the Republic.
