The Kill Team (NR)

Documentary 77 July 25, 2014

In 2010, a platoon of U.S. Army infantry soldiers was branded as "The Kill Team" following reports of its killing for sport in Afghanistan. Specialist Adam Winfield, a U.S. soldier in Afghanistan, attempted to alert the Army to the murders of unarmed civilians, and ended being implicated in one of the killings and charged with first-degree murder. Here, we examine the whistle-blowing blowback and how quickly morality can dissipate in the fog of war.
