Der Spiegel was the first to release a few of the “kill team” photos last week. Now Rolling Stone has released more of the photos, uncensored, as well as  clips from videos shared by members of the “kill team.”

Here’s a few of the photos released by Rolling Stone:

Here are the 2 videos released by Rolling Stone:

The clip presented here is excerpted from ‘Death Zone,’ a chilling video collected and shared by members of the “kill team” of U.S. soldiers who murdered civilians in Afghanistan and mutilated the corpses. Shot through thermal imaging, the grainy footage shows two Afghans suspected of planting an IED being blown up by an airstrike. While the deaths may have resulted from a legitimate combat engagement, the video itself represents a clear violation of Army standards. Scenes of the attack have been edited into a 15-minute music video, complete with a rock soundtrack and a title card. This clip from the video picks up shortly before the airstrike begins, accompanied by the song “En Vie” by Apocalyptica, a cello rock band from Helsinki. The video ends with grisly still images of the casualties, followed by closing credits. It was passed from soldier to soldier on thumb drives and hard drives.


The clip presented here is excerpted from ‘Motorcycle Kill,’ a video collected and shared by members of the “kill team” of U.S. soldiers who murdered civilians in Afghanistan and mutilated the corpses. The jumpy, 30-minute video – shot by soldiers believed to be with another battalion in the 5th Stryker Brigade – shows American troops gunning down two Afghans on a motorcycle who may have been armed. Even if the killings were part of a legitimate combat engagement, however, it is a clear violation of Army standards to share such footage. The video was taken on patrol with a helmet-mounted camera; at one point, the soldier shooting the images can be heard boasting, “I got it all on camera.”

  4. Just guessing but after this charade is over, those good ol’ boys will probably be secreted out of prison and sent back into the field of operations under another name only without still or video cameras. Why waste all of the resources spent training them?

    The banks need cash flow to keep the economy afloat and the opium trade is how they’re getting it. It’s being cleaned in the Caymans and other offshore money laundering havens. The banks need the money like street junkies need their fix. Trouble is, addicts, soldiers and civilians keep dying while Wall Street lawyers and bankers get fatter.

    Thanks for posting Joe Rogan’s banned video on this site. I watched it for the first time this morning. Great to hear someone with an informed opinion whom most American’s like speak his mind. A few more of those from some Hollywood heavyweights or pro sports personalities might further the process of restoring sanity to the United States and other countries that have bought into its way of doing business.

    Now, if we could only get people out from behind their workstations and out onto the street there might be reason to believe.
