U.S. Soldier Who Murdered Iraqi Family Dies In Prison

Comment: Pretty much the end result for US military and Iraqi civilians: A long list of psychologically traumatised and psychopathologised young American men who believed they were fighting for freedom rather than propping up the oil, weapons, drugs and trafficking industries.  The default requirement for such a business seems to be the endless death toll of Iraqi families who must who remain in the front line of Anglo-American-induced balkanisation, jihadist vacuums and Western false-flag operations which keeps the chaos turning over and over. 

And of course, imperial wars like these suck up sociopaths and  psychopaths who see the opportunity to indulge in a little sanctified rape and murder which is really a mirror of what his superiors and politicians are attempting on a macro-social scale.  

If  you weren't a sociopath when you entered the army then it'll make sure you become one by the time you leave.

Political Blindspot

The former U.S. soldier who was convicted of murdering an Iraqi family while he was deployed in their country, has been found dead in his prison cell. Steven Dale Green, 28, of Midland, Texas, likely committed suicide in prison where he was serving several life terms for murdering four members of an Iraqi family.

He was found Saturday, unresponsive in his cell at the federal penitentiary in Tucson, Arizona, according to Federal Bureau of Prisons (FBP) spokesman John Stahley. Stahley indicated that the FBP considered this a likely suicide.

Three other soldiers were also convicted with Green. Jesse Spielman, Paul Cortez and James Barker are all serving sentences in the military prison at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas for participating in the murder of an Iraqi family in Mahmoudiya, near a traffic checkpoint in March 2006.

Green shot and killed three members of the al-Janabi family. Three of soldiers, however, raped 14-year-old Abeer Qassim al-Janabi before murdering her. Each of those surviving rapists is eligible for parole in 2015.
