AMERICAN ANIMALS IN US MILITARY UNIFORMS COMMIT ACTS OF BARBARISM: WHY HAVE THEY NOT BEEN EXECUTED???
Wash.-- The Army on Friday dropped all charges against the fifth soldier accused of murdering Afghan civilians for sport during a 2010 deployment, in one of the most gruesome cases to emerge from the Afghan war.
Spc. Michael Wagnon of Las Vegas had been charged with the unlawful killing of one Afghan civilian. He had been expected to go to trial in March.
In a statement late Friday, Joint Base Lewis-McChord said the charges were dismissed "in the interest of justice."
the 26-year-old acknowledged cutting fingers off corpses and yanking out a victim's tooth to keep as war trophies, "like keeping the antlers off a deer you'd shoot."
