This past Monday saw the deadliest “intentional” attack on Afghan civilians by the US since the start of the ten year long war in Afghanistan. An unnamed US Army staff sergeant walked a mile in the middle of the night to two different villages near his base in southern Afghanistan and murdered 16 civilians, including 9 children and 3 women.
