re rape

reuters: US soldier charged with rape, murder in Iraq
today.reuters.com/news/newsarticle.aspx

Discharged soldier Steven Green, 21, appeared in court in Charlotte, North Carolina, on a charge from a federal prosecutor in Kentucky that he went with three others to a house near Mahmudiya, just south of Baghdad, to rape a woman there.

Green, who faces the death penalty, shot dead a man, woman and girl then raped another woman and killed her, the U.S. attorney said in a statement. Court documents said he had since been discharged from the army due to a "personality disorder".


discharged for personality disorder. sure. more like discharged as a pretext for damage control.

Mahmudiya's mayor and other local officials named the family and said Abeer Qasim Hamza was 16 when she was raped and killed, although U.S. investigators have the victim's age as 20. U.S. soldiers first put the family's killing down to insurgents.

okay now, the u.s. is spinning that abeer was 20, the mayor says 16, and in the previous post the family says she was 15. who do you think is most reliable? same goes for abeer's sister, hadeel, who the autopsy listed as being 7, not 10. this is not a difficult thing to get these ages correct in print reporting.

…the family were Sunni Muslims from the powerful Janabi tribe.

google on the janabi tribe
www.google.com/search
and you will see that the janabi's are not people you really want to be fucking around with. one source puts the tribe at about 1 million strong, historically one of the largest in all of iraq. powerful, influential & organized. so when the u.s. govt says that the rape of abeer & the execution of her family is not connected to the later kidnapping & execution of two members of the 101st from a checkpoint was not related, you can pretty much assume that is complete bullshit.
