SEATTLE (AP) -- The U.S. soldier suspected of gunning down at least 16 Afghan civilians was from a Washington state-based Stryker brigade and received his assignment to a village stability program less than six weeks ago.

Maybe he was auditioning to be a convert to Islam as a suicide bomber.
Any name yet?
First he was special forces, then he was a gate guard,now he is a member of the Styker Brigade. keep it up media you might get it right eventually.
What kind of fall-out do you think there would be if it turns out he’s a muslim of one tribe killing the other?
Time to turn over this paradise back to Mr. Karzai.
Not buying it.
And I wonder why we don't know his name.
How many times has an Afghan soldier gone postal and killed American soldiers? And how many of those times did Karzai call Obama to say how sorry he was?
Come on Media. Whittle it down to the coordinates for his home where his 2 kids and wife live so a Jihadi hit team can fined it easier. What a bunch of trouble makers. Complicit terrorists = DBM
Which may be why we don't know his name yet.
I beginning to think the only weapon we should use is a tactical nuke. To hell with em.
If they want to live they can stop killing us, otherwise their whole village goes.
War is hell.
Given that Washington State has spawned an amazingly high percentage of the nation’s mass murderers and serial killers over the years, perhaps they need to step up recruiting here.
My daughter pointed out that many of the women may have died of their injuries because they are not allowed to be touched by a non-relative male, including doctors or emergency workers.
All would have been forgiven if he had only yelled “allahu akbar” as he pulled the trigger.
He was NOT Special Forces...he was support on the SF COP.
In the October 2001 EWR just after 9/11, I said I believed a main goal of the attack was to lure US officials into a trap. I thought the attackers wanted the US mired in an Islamic tar pit, where US troops would copy the Mi Lai massacre of the Vietnam War. I said, "the enemy is not trying to kill our bodies, he is trying to kill our sould.

Something is NOT right here...This in in my son’s AO. First off Panjwaii is the hands down worst area of Afghanistan...the ENTIRE place is Taliban. The place is littered with IED’s and booby traps! I cannot fathom how this soldier walked off of an SF COP without being noticed...does that make sense? If you could get out that easy that means someone could get in that easy! He walks a mile, gets by all of the dogs, hits THREE villages, stacks the bodies and then tries to burn them and walks back????? I hate to make light of it but really he sounds like a Ninja!
If this is real, I hope they note what kind of drugs they’ve been feeding him. Not just the psych drugs. There’s been a lot of stories about the malaria drugs making people freak out.
