Soldier Accused Of Massacare in Afghanistan Doesn't Remember A Thing And Denies That He Was Drinking
The Staff Sargeant, Robert Bales, who allegedly killed and set afire 16 people, says that he cannot remember the attack at all. He also told his attorney that he took "a couple" of sips of a drink, but WAS NOT DRUNK or DRINKING.

It makes you wonder if he was set up, and who set him up and why?

For now, that's what I am thinking,too.

However, I wouldn't rule anything out, including him being set up by the enemy.

I still cannot believe one man, could kill all those people, and no one heard a thing, or tried to stop him. Then, he is accused of setting them on fire, too. Hard story for me to buy, really hard.

It's so obvious now that he didn't do it! In fact, investigations in Afghanistan concluded that one man could not have done it.

The most likely verdict will be that they killed themselves but the last one to die then toasted and roasted the others before jumping into the flames herself or himself if it was a man.

I CALLED IT! I said several times on the threads that reported this story, that I bet he was slipped something and he will not remember a thing about it.

Now there's reports of eye witnesses that it was several troops, not just that one and it was a raid, also a female Afghan MP said family members of some of the victims said that the women were sexually harrassed and raped and their bodies burnt to cover up evidence.
Another guy said "soldiers" came in and dragged his uncle outside from his bedroom, asked where is the Taliban and then shot him.

Now remember again, 9 children killed, all under 6, one was just a 2 months old baby - 3 women and the rest men, they say 18 murdered in total.

This was a raid to intimidate and instill fear in the villagers and the one's not cooperating were drugged, and poor Bale is now taking the shit for all of them. This is pissing me off. My heart goes out to this soldier and his family, that's so unfair imo.

 Quoting: CuriosityCat1


The boy in the hospital and the villagers all say it was several US troops. So of course the one's not cooperating were drugged, told to go and rape, kill little kids and babies and burn the evidence as revenge for bombings. And who would come up with such an evil plan? Maybe the guy that came to visit and had to ask his Marines to disarm?

Somebody knows exactly who is responsible and should speak out, even if their live would be threatened. This is just 1 incident out of so many across the world of this evil crime gang (not talking about troops there, they are victims and casualties of these wars too).

Watch "To Hell and Back again" - great Documentary about US Soldiers in Afghanistan, really touched me.

Bale is not the one that needs to be charged and sentenced - arrest "THEM", you know who I mean.

Thanks for posting this OP.

This must be the twilight zone.

The guy donned night gear vision in pitch black night, went on a murder spree then tried to hide his weapon with a shawl.

Then the guy said he went killing military age dudes aka insurgents and when confronted about the rampage he says he aint saying a word and he needs to speak to a lawyer.


Now his lawyer says he cant remember anything. Oh sure he remembered the part where he came back to the base after the killings right?



And you guys suppoting this criminal are a joke. He murdered 9 children in cold blood and all you guys are talking about how he served his country. IS this how you serve your country? by murdering innocent children? I can only surmise that you folks dont have any kids because you will not be talking in such a way if you had any

If you believe the MSM story then we could maybe agree with you. But there were more than him and plenty eyewitnesses. Watch the video I posted. We may never know the real truth...Afghanistan is a hellhole and went totally out of control. Ask the US soldiers what they really think...but they get cut off by MSM when they do like recently on CNN.

Re: Soldier Accused Of Massacare in Afghanistan Doesn't Remember A Thing And Denies That He Was Drinking
U.S. soldier accused of gunning down 16 Afghans is a con man who feds say bilked elderly couple out of a million
Federal financial regulators say Sgt. Robert Bales 'engaged in fraud' before joining the Army




The U.S. soldier who now claims to have no memory of slaughtering 16 Afghan civilians is a “smooth talker” who defrauded an elderly Ohio couple out of their savings, records revealed Tuesday.

Staff Sgt. Robert Bales enlisted in the Army shortly after federal financial regulators found he “engaged in fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, churning, unauthorized trading and unsuitable investments,” according to a report on Bales filed in 2003.

Bales, who was then a stockbroker in Columbus, Ohio, and his partners, were ordered to pay Gary Liebschner and his wife $1,274,000 in compensatory and punitive damages.

So far, he hasn’t paid a dime, according to Liebschner.

“He robbed me of my life savings,” Liebschner told ABC News. “We didn't know where he was. We heard the Bahamas, and all kinds of places.”



How do you like him now!!!!

any plot that somehow reduces this individuals responsibility .

notice the common theme?

this kind of incident has occurred wherever US troops have been.

an american soldier went raping and murdering here in ww2, which resulted in many of his company be ing killed in mildura when the US wouldn't hand him over for local trial.

you cant really tarnish further the reputation of an army that is infamous for this kind of activity.

what can be done is to bring up as many excuses as possible to reduce the dent on the american psyche by creating doubt of responsibility.
