Army Death Squad Cut ‘Trophies’ From Civilians They Murdered

The American soldiers took more than 4,000 photos of their civilian Afghan kills and “trophies,”but the evidence is, as usual, being hidden from us and the world. And we know what little we know thanks to a foreign news source (Der Spiegel, in this case). And btw, I do not for a minute believe that this was a “rogue” outfit, but typical of at least a substantial minority—the men who join the army because they enjoy killing. They called it the Phoenix Program in Vietnam, murder squads sent to kill civilians to terrorize villages suspected of disloyalty to DC. John Kerry was one of the war criminals. How ironic that the neocons targeted him as insufficiently bloody. (Thanks to Travis Holte)
