Four Thousand More Pictures of GIs Posing with Dead AfghansSubmitted by MaxK on Tue, 03/22/2011 - 07:22
The photographs were published yesterday by Germany’s Der Spiegel magazine and were among 4,000 it has obtained... It is feared that these pictures - which show the aftermath of the murders at the hands of a rogue U.S. Stryker 'kill team' - could be even more damaging as the trials of the 12 accused men are currently under way in Seattle.
The images published by Der Spiegel were part of a broader pool of photos and video taken by soldiers. They included a videotaped scene of another soldier, Spc. Corey Moore, stabbing the corpse of a dead Taliban fighter. Such images also may have reached soldiers of the 5th Brigade (Stryker), 2nd Infantry Division. Der Spiegel reports obtaining some 4,000 images, but has not disclosed the source.
