Afghan civilians killed ‘randomly’ by US troops


This video from the USA is called Special Ops Killing of Civilians in Afghanistan: A Pattern of Brutality, Denials and Outrage.

By Dave Markland in Canada:

One American soldier based out of Fort Lewis in Washington state has been arrested while others are under investigation for the alleged murder of civilians in Kandahar province earlier this year. All the soldiers are with the U.S. Army’s 5th Stryker Brigade, which deployed to Kandahar in July of 2009. The unit suffered a large number of casualties, which observers have seen as a catalyst for anger which resulted in the alleged outrage.
