(Boal 2011) The kill team


Boal, Mark. The kill team: how U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan murdered innocent civilians and mutilated their corpses—and how their officers failed to stop them. Rolling Stone. 2011 Apr 14; 1128:56–69. Internet version: 2011 Mar 27. Available from: http://www.rollingstone.com/kill-team.

Boal, the screenwriter of The Hurt Locker, here reports the facts of hate crimes, including murder and mutilation, against Afghan civilians by the U.S. military, and the subsequent cover-up and scapegoating of low-level offenders when the facts were brought to light. The accompanying images are extremely graphic.
