Liberal Media: US Soldiers Posed With Dead Bodies of Defenseless Civilians
Let the Muslim rioting begin…
Far left international media outlets are reporting that US soldiers posed with the dead bodies of “defenseless” Afghanistan civilians. Der Spiegel reported that the US soldiers “killed Afghan civilians for fun, humiliating their victims with horrific pictures.” It is not known how Der Spiegel acquired the photos.
The Guardian reported:
Commanders in Afghanistan are bracing themselves for possible riots and public fury triggered by the publication of “trophy” photographs of US soldiers posing with the dead bodies of defenceless Afghan civilians they killed.
Senior officials at Nato’s International Security Assistance Force in Kabul have compared the pictures published by the German news weekly Der Spiegel to the images of US soldiers abusing prisoners in Abu Ghraib in Iraq which sparked waves of anti-US protests around the world.
They fear that the pictures could be even more damaging as they show the aftermath of the deliberate murders of Afghan civilians by a rogue US Stryker tank unit that operated in the southern province of Kandahar last year.
Some of the activities of the self-styled “kill team” are already public, with 12 men currently on trial in Seattle for their role in the killing of three civilians.
Five of the soldiers are on trial for pre-meditated murder, after they staged killings to make it look like they were defending themselves from Taliban attacks.
Other charges include the mutilation of corpses, the possession of images of human casualties and drug abuse.
All of the soldiers have denied the charges. They face the death penalty or life in prison if convicted.
So how did they get these photos? Who took them and what proof do they have that this is actually what took place?
I wait anxiously to hear the rest of the story.
The US military apologized today for the “repugnant” incident.
