In one incident in May last year, the article says, during a patrol, the team apprehended a mullah who was standing by the road and took him into a ditch where they made him kneel down.
The group’s leader, Staff Sergeant Calvin Gibbs, then allegedly threw a grenade at the man while an order was given for him to be shot.
Afterwards, Gibbs is described cutting off one of the man’s little fingers and removing a tooth.
The patrol team later claimed to their superiors that the mullah had tried to threaten them with a grenade and that they had no choice but to shoot.
I think what many of these idiots don’t understand is that when they pull a stunt like this, they’re undermining the mission and making the US’s job that much harder. We’re not talking about a WWII style annihilation of the country, this is intended to root out the “bad guys” so we can befriend the rest and leave on good terms. This ain’t exactly helping.
