Damage control RE: 16 Afghanis killed?

I'm sure you have heard the news about the 'lone gunman' who slaughtered 16 human beings in Afghanistan. I've heard several different news-casts on the radio about this event, and now I've seen a version on the CNN.

OK, so here is where it gets strange. One of the reports I heard that differed from all the others was from the Coast-to-Coast radio show (the old Art Bell Program), and it really wasn't a news-cast. It was the host and a guest discussing it. The guest was the only person I've heard that has mentioned several troops engaging in this barbaric behavior, and also the only mention I heard of burning of the corpses.

Then a quick search brought this up:
http://news.kuwaittimes.net/2012/03/11/us-soldier-kills-16-i...

Is this an example of news being sanitized for American consumtion?

EDIT: A talking head on CNN just mentioned 'reports' of several gunman, but no mention of the burning. Please note that the picture in the above link shows a dead corpse with clear evidence of immolation.

"Here’s a summary of the Western media discussion of what motivated U.S. Staff Sgt. Robert Bales to allegedly kill 16 Afghans, including 9 children: he was drunk, he was experiencing financial stress, he was passed over for a promotion, he had a traumatic brain injury, he had marital problems, he suffered from the stresses of four tours of duty, he “saw his buddy’s leg blown off the day before the massacre,” etc.

Here’s a summary of the Western media discussion of what motivates Muslims to kill Americans: they are primitive, fanatically religious, hateful Terrorists."

For whatever reason, they forgot the 'They hate us because we are free' part...

"The official U.S. story alleges that a single gunman-soldier lost his mind temporarily, left the base, massacred 16 innocent people, burned some of them, and then returned to base and turned himself in.

A new report could not be more different: "A parliamentary probe team on Thursday said up to 20 American troops were involved in Sunday’s killing of 16 civilians in southern Kandahar province." Another report says that the soldiers sexually assaulted women."
