Oh what a huge Black-eye this is. Terrible, disgusting, but oh so typical of those we like to dismiss as being " BAD SEEDS "
The thrill-kill squad: Five U.S. troops accused of killing Afghan civilians for fun
By Daniel Bates
Five American soldiers have been accused of forming a ‘death squad’ to randomly target innocent Afghan civilians for sport.
The men are said to have shot Afghans before covering their tracks to make it look like an attack was imminent.
They are also said to have cut up the bodies of Afghan civilians, photographed them and kept the bones, skulls or fingers as ‘trophies’ of war.Drug use is said to have been widespread among the soldiers of 5th Stryker Combat Brigade, of the 2nd Infantry Division, as they carried out their executions in Kandahar province between January and May this year.
Sergeant Calvin Gibbs, Specialist Adam Winfield, Specialist Michael Wagnon II, Private Andrew Holmes and Corporal Jeremy Morlock are all accused of being involved in one or more of three murders.
A military pre-trial will decide how the men should be dealt with, but they could face life in jail if convicted in a criminal court.
A MUST READ QUOTE:
The key testimony in the case comes from Morlock, 22, who made a chilling video confession.
Morlock blames Gibbs for ordering the unit to carry out the atrocities and claimed the sergeant ‘just really doesn’t have any problems with ******* killing these people’.
He added: ‘We identify a guy. Gibbs makes a comment, like, you know, “you guys wanna wax this guy or what?”.’
Morlock said Gibbs would try to cover his tracks by planting a
Russian grenade close to bodies to make it look as if they had been mounting an attack
Sad case indeed!
