guess he just went totally nuts http://edition.cnn.com/2012/03/11/world/asia/afghanistan-us-service-member/index.html?hpt=hp_t1 From Sara Sidner, CNN March 12, 2012 -- Updated 0110 GMT (0910 HKT) Kabul, Afghanistan (CNN) -- An American soldier went on a house-to-house shooting spree in two villages in southern Afghanistan early Sunday, Afghan officials said, killing 16 people in what Afghanistan's president called an "unforgivable" crime. In a statement issued by his office, Karzai said the killings took place in the district of Panjwai, about 25 km (15 miles) southwest of Kandahar, southern Afghanistan's major city. Haji Agha Lali, a member of the provincial council, told CNN the soldier had attacked four houses in two nearby villages. At least three of the child victims were killed by a single shot to the head, the BBC's Quentin Sommerville reports from Kabul. Photographs from the scene showed bodies, some of them clearly young children, placed in a vehicle under blankets. "We call this an intentional act," Karzai said. He said the dead included four men, three women and nine children, calling the killings "acts of terror and unforgivable." Another five people were wounded, he said. They said only one soldier, an Army staff sergeant, is believed to have been involved. A U.S. military official told CNN later Sunday that the suspect is from Joint Base Lewis-McChord in Washington state. The official said the soldier is assigned to a Special Forces unit.
