Marine says he killed civilians
Jimmy Massey, a 12-year veteran of the Marines, told Amy Goodman that he and his fellow soldiers regularly slaughtered civilians in Iraq for little or no good reason. When he went public, the military sent him home for treatment for post-traumatic stress disorder, a move he thinks was intended to discredit him by making him out to be a headcase.
“He was tired of watching his boys “light up” cars full of innocent civilians with their 50 cal’s and M-16’s. He couldn’t forget how his paranoid, sleep-deprived soldiers opened fire on a group of unarmed protestors while he walked the lines making sure they had enough food and water. More than enough Iraqi babies had died in his arms after suffering wounds from American machine gun fire.”
