Remember the piece of shit soldier who allegedly led a group of troops in raping a 14-year-old Iraqi girl and then setting her on fire, killing her, and murdering her family, then grilling a few chicken wings? Well, guess the fuck what? Turns out he was diagnosed as "a homicidal threat by a military mental health team three months before the attack."

Pfc. Steven D. Green was found to have "homicidal ideations" after seeking help from an Army Combat Stress Team in Iraq on Dec. 21, 2005. Green said he was angry about the war, desperate to avenge the death of comrades and driven to kill Iraqi citizens, according to an investigation by The Associated Press.

The treatment was several small doses of Seroquel — a drug to regulate his mood — and a directive to get some sleep, according to medical records obtained by the AP. The next day, he returned to duty in the particularly violent stretch of desert in the southern Baghdad suburbs known as the "Triangle of Death."
And three months later, he killed an entire Iraqi family. Allegedly.

I honestly don't even know what to say about this fucking debacle anymore.
