An AMERICAN jailed for raping and killing a girl of 14 and murdering her parents and sister in Iraq has blamed trauma in the war zone for his actions.
Steven Green, 25, a former 101st Airborne soldier, in his first interview since the 2006 atrocity, said he didn’t think of Iraqi civilians as human.
He claimed that his crimes were fuelled in part by his experiences in Iraq’s “Triangle of Death”, where he saw two of his sergeants gunned down. He said that “messed me up real bad”.
He also cited a lack of leadership and army help.
