US soldiers 'killed Afghan civilians for sport and collected fingers as trophies
Twelve American soldiers face trial over an secret "kill team" that allegedly blew up and shot Afghan civilians at random and collected their fingers as trophies.

Five of the soldiers are charged with murdering three Afghan men who were allegedly killed for sport in separate attacks this year. Seven other soldiers are accused of covering up the killings as well as a violent assault on a new recruit who exposed the murders when he reported other abuses, including members of the unit smoking hashish stolen from civilians.

In one of the most serious accusations of war crimes to emerge from the Afghan conflict, the killings are alleged to have been carried out by members of a Stryker infantry brigade based in Kandahar province. According to investigators and legal documents, discussion of killing Afghan civilians began after the arrival of Staff Sergeant Calvin Gibbs at forward operating base Ramrod last November Other soldiers later told the army's criminal investigation command that Gibbs boasted of the things he got away with while serving in Iraq and before long was remarking on how easy it would be to "toss a grenade at someone and kill them".

One soldier said he believed Gibbs was "feeling out the platoon".

According to investigators, Gibbs, 25, shortly afterwards hatched a plan with another soldier, Jeremy Morlock, 22, and other members of the unit to form a "kill team". While on patrol over the following months they allegedly killed at least three Afghan civilians.

4 more Lewis-McChord Stryker soldiers charged in Afghan deaths

The five soldiers accused of killing three Afghan civilians over a period of months earlier this year allegedly threw grenades at them and shot them with rifles, according to charging papers released Wednesday by Joint Base Lewis-McChord.

Two of the soldiers also are accused of beating and spitting at a fellow soldier who might have been an informant, while a third soldier is alleged to have tried to impede the investigation by obtaining a hard drive which contained evidence of the killings and asking a colleague to erase it.

In all, five soldiers from the same unit — the 2nd Battalion, 1st Infantry Regiment of the 5th Stryker Brigade Combat Team — now face charges. The men are accused in a series of slayings that took place between January and May this year in Kandahar Province.

The investigation comes a blow to the credibility of the U.S. military, which is seeking to win over local populations in advance of a major offensive. Kandahar Province is a focal point of the campaign against insurgent forces.

The Army has implicated two of the soldiers in all three killings as well as an attack on a fellow soldier. The other three soldiers are alleged to have been involved in one killing each. Lt. Col. Tamara Parker, a spokeswoman at Lewis-McChord, said she didn't expect any other soldiers to be charged in the case.

Pfc. Andrew Holmes, 19; Spc. Michael Wagnon, 29; and Spc. Adam Winfield, 21; were each returned to the base Monday and charged with one count of murder Tuesday. They are each being held in pretrial confinement, in the military equivalent of a jail.

Re: US soldiers 'killed Afghan civilians for sport and collected fingers as trophies
t least two of the five US soldiers charged in the deaths of three Afghan civilians had kept body parts taken from Afghan corpses and threatened subordinates, according to new documents released by the US army.

Five soldiers - Calvin Gibbs, Adam Winfield, Jeremy Morlock and Michael Wagon, Andrew Holmes - have been charged with premeditated murder. The soldiers are accused of killing three civilians using guns and grenades, in the province of Kandahar earlier this year, even though they faced no immediate threat.

In charging papers released on Wednesday, prosecutors said Gibbs, the most senior of the charged members, was found in possession of "finger bones, leg bones and a tooth taken from Afghan corpses".

Dressed in a t-shirt and Army shorts, a 22-year-old corporal from Wasilla, Alaska casually describes on a video tape made by military investigators how his unit's "crazy" sergeant randomly chose three unarmed, innocent victims to be murdered in Afghanistan.

Corporal Jeremy N. Morlock is one of five GI's charged with pre-meditated murder in a case that includes allegations of widespread drug use, the collection of body parts and photos of the U.S. soldiers holding the Afghan bodies like hunter's trophies.



All five soldiers were part of the 5th Stryker Combat Brigade, of the 2nd Infantry Division, based at Ft. Lewis-McChord, Washington. In charging documents released by the Army, the military alleges that the five, Staff Sgt. Calvin R. Gibbs, Spec Adam C. Winfield, Spec. Michael S. Wagnon II, Pfc. Andrew H. Holmes and Morlock were involved in one or more of three murders that took place between January and May of this year.
