I havn't read about 10 people, but have seen references to "coalition forces" and "soldiers".

Here's another twist...


On Monday, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization released a statement saying a detainee was found dead in his holding cell on Sunday, after being arrested during an operation on Saturday night.

"The detainee was shot after four or five other detainees were taken out of the holding cell," said an Afghan official familiar with the investigation. "After the shot was heard, the soldiers went to the cell and found the dead body."

The Afghan official's account was confirmed by coalition officials.


Were the "four or five other detainees" removed from the cell so they couldn't identify the shooter? Was PFC Lawrence capable of doing all that alone?

I can’t seem to find it smooth. Perhaps I misread something. I’m going to check with someone tomorrow that might have more details. And it may have come from an earlier conversation with them.

Really seems like they are hushing and rushing this.

Most of what I can find is the same spiel.

I will tell you I was told about a month ago “Don’t expect to see anything in the news about this”.

Seems like that assessment is dead on. But that person would definitely know for sure.
