U.S. Army "Kill Squads" in Afghanistan

If it's news, but not politics, then it goes here.

U.S. Army "Kill Squads" in Afghanistan

Postby pattymcnutt » Mon Mar 28, 2011 2:56 pm

I just saw a link to this article from Huffington Post. It's 8 pages long, so I'll just post the link and not the entire text:
http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/news/the-kill-team-20110327

This is really sickening. HOW was this not in the mainstream media!!!??? The only other references I could find to it were the NY Daily News and The Guardian, along with a few blogs and online news outlets.

The Rolling Stone is doing tremendous work these days. Their financial reporting has been spectacular.

Why isn't this in the MSM? Because the US loves war and killing if it means protecting our cheap gas.

Oh yeah, and that whole 'military industrial complex'...I forgot about that one...

It is sickening, I can't even fathom how soldiers can lose their morality and humanity to such a degree. The media should be frothing at the mouth like they were about Abu Ghraib. Why aren't they? hmmmmm.... could it be because of who the Commander in Chief is now?
