Kandahar massacre

Interesting that the attack occurred nearly at the same date (11 March 2012) as the infamous My Lai massacre (16 March 1968) but 44 years apart, though little noted by the mainstream press. Of course, the more things change, the more they stay the same. The official story stinks, of course. It seems likely a US Army death squad committed the horrible acts, with Sgt Bales the patsy. And certainly it's been interesting how many stories we've heard about Bales, trying to excuse the crime. So clearly bogus is the official massacre story that even Salon.com -- a mainstay of liberal anti-conspiracy reporting-- questioned whether Bales acted alone. Importantly, the killed and wounded were people, and had names. I wonder if we ever found out any of the names of the people killed at My Lai.
