Have your say! "Free Speech" or Muslim bashing? Do you support Iraq troop withdrawal? Iran invasion?

    US sergeant shows no remorse for murdering an unarmed Iraqi

    The sergeant apparently claimed that, although the Iraqi was unarmed he doesn't regret murdering the man, he claimed to save a fellow soldier. How could an unarmed Iraqi have matched the capabilities of US troops armed, and sometimes capable of shooting at anything that moves? Earth Link has this report:

    After shooting Ismail, Werst said he quickly fired the Iraqi's pistol into a couch and told the other soldier, Pfc. Nathan Stewart, to put the man's fingerprints on it. Werst said he was scared afterward because he had never shot anyone before, and that Stewart also was "freaking out." He said he should not have tried to make the shooting look like self-defense. "It was wrong. I have no idea why I did that," Werst said.
    Of course not. See all recent "A Logical Voice" posts
