After the US military tried to prevent access,
western reporters have been able to interview Afghan Massacre witnesses
who report multiple soldiers assisted by helicopter support.
The witnesses give first hand accounts saying that a group of 20 soldiers participated in the attack
and were assisted by a helicopter that was giving air support,
The US government’s official version says there was only one shooter involved,
but news broke earlier that the accused shooter’s attorney is being denied access to the witnesses and information
about the incident
to defend his client.
The witnesses report watching their family members being killed by a lead gunman
while other soldiers secure the area
and held lights
during the nighttime raids.
Afghan soldiers also report that he went to the base to inform them about the alleged shooter’s “weird behavior”
after the first round of killings.
Despite being warned,
the accused soldier is believed to have remained on the base for over an hour
before the second round of killings.
