    Question in particular for the Leftwingers who had apoplectic fits over the Abu Graib photos:

    Where is your outrage over the Kill Team Photos?

    Morlock and Holmes called to him in Pashto as he walked toward them, ordering him to stop. The boy did as he was told. He stood still.

    The soldiers knelt down behind a mud-brick wall. Then Morlock tossed a grenade toward Mudin, using the wall as cover. As the grenade exploded, he and Holmes opened fire, shooting the boy repeatedly at close range with an M4 carbine and a machine gun.

    Mudin buckled, went down face first onto the ground. His cap toppled off. A pool of blood congealed by his head.

    "The brigade gave me open access. I could go anywhere, anytime, so long as I could find a ride, which never was a problem beyond normal combat problems. If they had something to hide, it was limited and I didn’t find it. I was not with the Soldiers accused of murder and had no knowledge of this. It is important to note that the murder allegations were not discovered by media vigilance, but by, for instance, at least one Soldier in that tiny unit who was appalled by the behavior. A brigade is a big place with thousands of Soldiers, and in Afghanistan they were spread thinly across several provinces because we decided to wage war with too few troops. Those Soldiers accused of being involved in (or who should have been knowledgeable of) the murders could fit into a minivan. You would need ten 747s for the rest of the Brigade who did their duty. I was with many other Soldiers from 5/2 SBCT. My overall impression was very positive. After scratching my memory for negative impressions from 5/2 Soldiers, I can’t think of any, actually, other than the tiny Kill Team who, to my knowledge, I never set eyes upon."

    "Rolling Stone commits a literary “crime” by deceptively entwining this normal combat video with the Kill Team story. The Taliban on the motorcycle were killed during an intense operation in the Arghandab near Kandahar City. "

    My question is for the Lefties who immediately jumped on the Abu Graib photos as evidence of atrocities in Iraq.

    Where is their outrage now?

    I thinkthe story goes some soldiers Murdered some iraqs without cause. I don't understan why the OP would say where is the outrage and compare it to Abu Garaib tho.

    I guess you've missed the threads on this where many of us expressed our outrage and were glad those involved were being court-martialled.


    But, I guess I have to say it again.

    I am outraged and am glad that those involved are being court-martialled.


    Let me know when you forget what I just said and want me to repeat it.
