The soldier he opened fire on unarmed civilians? [/quote] No. What I'm saying is that the relevant finding from the testimony of these victim children was that there was more than one shooter. We were all told there was only one. Exactly like in the other two instances I mentioned. For example, we are to believe, I think, that Bales acted alone, but on two separate occasions, actually returning to base to re-equip and perhaps sleep in between, from what I recall reading at the time. I remember reading about an adult witness from one of the villages who said there was more than one also. The sheer amount of death, coupled with the relative likelihood that someone in each village would have been armed, are inconsistent with there having been a lone shooter. For such an act to have occurred in an armed environment, there would have to be more than one actor involved in order to maintain crowd control. [/quote]
Joint Base Lewis-McChord, Wash: The soldier accused of killing 16 Afghan civilians watched as child after child described the bloodbath that left their parents and other loved ones dead. Whatever reaction Staff Sgt. Robert Bales might have had, he kept hidden behind a calm face.
Three sessions of nighttime testimony in Bales' preliminary hearing, scheduled to accommodate witnesses participating by video link from Afghanistan, were set to wrap up late Sunday. After the hearing at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, the investigating officer will decide whether to court-martial Bales, who could be sentenced to death if convicted.
