Another US Atrocity In Iraq: Soldiers Under Investigation For Rape And Murder

Rape and Murder In Iraq
From Counterpunch:
The picture in the paper of the young soldier being led away in handcuffs bore an eerie resemblance to the pictures of Lynndie England at her trial. Both young, scared and perhaps not truly sure of what they had done wrong. Like England, who suffered from learning disabilities and Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome before entering the military, Private Steven Green, charged with the rape and murder of a young Iraqi girl and the murder of 3 members of her family, suffers from "anti-social personality disorder" which the military cited as the reason for his discharge earlier this year.
We will no doubt once again be assured that this was an isolated incident, a few low-ranking soldiers run amok. But it will be no more true now than it was at Abu Ghraib.


US prosecutors have charged Steven Green, 21 , a former private with the US Army's storied 101st Airborne Division, with raping and murdering an Iraqi girl, after gunning down three members of her family, including a five-year-old sister. According to court documents, Green and three fellow soldiers conspired to rape the girl, said to be 15 -year-old, and changed into dark clothes before going to the house. When they returned after the incident, they had blood on their clothes, which they immediately burned

On July 5th 2006, Iraqi Prime Minister Nuri al-Maliki called for an independent inquiry and pressed for a review of foreign troops' immunity from Iraqi law.
