Lord Bless This Defender of Freedom and Keep Him Safe in Your Hands: The Kill Team Photo's


Before the military found itself short of troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, Morlock was the kind of bad-news kid who the Army might have passed on. He grew up not far from Sarah Palin in Wasilla, Alaska; his sister hung out with Bristol, and Morlock played hockey against Track. Back in those days, it seemed like he was constantly in trouble: getting drunk and into fights, driving without a license, leaving the scene of a serious car accident.


Before the military found itself short of troops and started accepting every dumbass shitferbrains redneck motherfucker they could lay their hands on, things must have been just dandy in that great big brotherhood of ''protectors of freedom around the world,'' the US Military. (Yesterday's NASCAR invocation at Fontana, and I kid you not.)

So what's the problem here? I guess it must be that those 'moral waivers' that the Pentagon dishes out, they just ain't no guarantee of morality.

Moral waivers must be approved by an officer of the rank of lieutenant colonel or higher and are required when an Army applicant has been found guilty of committing four or more minor offenses such as littering or disorderly conduct - or two to four misdemeanors such as larcency, trespassing, or vandalism.

Applicants who have committed a single felony such as arson, burglary, aggravated assault, breaking and entering, or marijuana possession must also receive a moral waiver to join. Applicants with more than one felony - or with a single conviction for a more serious crime such as homicide, sexual violence, or drug trafficking - are not eligible


homicide, sexual violence, or drug trafficking, they being reserved for after you enlist. (See photo caption 10, after the main link.) But, No Gays Mind You. Not Even If Your The Only Gay In The Village



But hey! lets not worry about standards, as long as the Pentagon gets its cannon fodder, no worries, not even What Happens When The Troops Do Come Home?

And I'm sure you didn't fail but to notice the sweetest of ironies, the star of our show, Morlock, grew up not far from, Missus, lock load and re-load, shoot it if it walks, Sarah Palin in Wasilla, Alaska; his sister hung out with Bristol. Thank you God.

Right so! the story main.


Rolling Stone:

During the first five months of last year, a platoon of U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan went on a shooting spree, killing at least four unarmed civilians and mutilating several of the corpses. The “kill team” – members of the 5th Stryker Brigade stationed near Kandahar – took scores of photos chronicling their kills and their time in Afghanistan. Even before the war crimes became public, the Pentagon went to extraordinary measures to suppress the photos, launching a massive effort to find every file and pull the pictures out of circulation before they could touch off a scandal on the scale of Abu Ghraib.

The images – more than 150 of which have been obtained by Rolling Stone – portray a front-line culture among U.S. troops in which killing innocent civilians is seen as a cause for celebration. “Most people within the unit disliked the Afghan people,” one of the soldiers told Army investigators. “Everyone would say they’re savages.”

Many of the photos depict explicit images of violent deaths that have yet to be identified by the Pentagon. Among the soldiers, the collection was treated like a war memento. It was passed from man to man on thumb drives and hard drives, the gruesome images of corpses and war atrocities filed alongside clips of TV shows, UFC fights and films such as Iron Man 2. One soldier kept a complete set, which he made available to anyone who asked.
