Could this be the Abu Ghraib Scandal of the U.S. War on Afghanistan? The Guardian reported last week on the first photos to be released from the group of 4,000 related to the "Kill Team" in Afghanistan now on trial by the Army, for murdering Afghan civilians under cover of war.

The US ambassador to Afghanistan, Karl Eikenberry, recently confided to officials that he feared it might trigger the same kind of scandal as that at Abu Ghraib in Iraq, where images of prisoners being abused by US soldiers sparked anti-American protests.  For weeks the US government has been working to pre-empt any outrage, with top officials, including the US vice president Joe Biden, in talks with Hamid Karzai, the Afghan president.


Now, the Rolling Stone in The Kill Team has more photos.
