As C.I. explains near the end of the snapshot, Steven Dale Green lost his appeal.
This is the face of the killer, this is the face of the rapist.
That photo is public domain, by the way (see here). Feel free to use it.
Steven D. Green is a War Criminal. C.I. has long covered the story. At Third they did a bang up job as well (see "Abeer" and "Justice for Abeer and her family?"). And Rebecca was fierce in her coverage -- like C.I.'s, Rebecca's coverage is too numerous to note.
And I think about the coverage the community provided and how the crimes received more attention in Iraq than they did here.
And let me clarify that I'm speaking of the US press. US press stationed in Iraq did a better job of covering it. And the excuse I told myself was, "Well it's over in Iraq and it's getting so little coverage because so few outlets have reporters there."
But because Steven D. Green has discharged from the army before the crimes were known, he didn't face a court martial in Iraq the way other participants did. No, the ringleader was tried in Kentucky. And surely these War Crimes would get massive attention from the press, right?
And a large number of Americans still don't know what happened.
That's their loss and liability. Steven Green's appeal was turned down today but could be approved next time. You want him in your neighborhood? This man who broke into a home at night to rape a 14-year-old girl, to murder her and her parents and her five-year-old sister? You want him living next to you?
