Soldier Admits US Forces in Afghanistan Ordered to Kill Women & Children

>>> From "Fresh Memories of War" by Kandea Mosley, The Ithaca Journal (New York), 25 May 2002:

"We were told there were no friendly forces," said [Army Private Matt] Guckenheimer, an assistant gunner with the 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum. "If there was anybody there, they were the enemy. We were told specifically that if there were women and children to kill them."

That costume looks more like a Vaughn Bode character.


"We were told there were no friendly forces," said [Army Private Matt] Guckenheimer, an assistant gunner with the 10th Mountain Division at Fort Drum. "If there was anybody there, they were the enemy. We were told specifically that if there were women and children to kill them."

Liar. A complete liar.

I did a google search and came up with this by the same soldier:


original:http://www.theithacajournal.com/news/stories/20020604/opinion/440857.html

a latter comment by the same guy:
Recently your paper quoted me as saying that my unit was ordered to kill women and children.
I would like to clarify this quote and provide more context.

Prior to the operation, we were made aware of the fact that the hostile forces of the Whaleback might include women and children. In that event, if those women and children showed hostile intent, we were ordered to kill them as hostile forces, just like any other hostile force we encountered. However, this does not mean that we were ordered to slaughter noncombatants such as babies.

We were further informed that some of these children are trained starting at a very young age to be soldiers. Knowing this, we could not afford to just dismiss them as noncombatants.

However, I do not want anyone to get the idea that we were ever sent out to kill anyone and anything that moves. We are better than that, both as a military unit and as a society.

Matt Guckenheimer

Cayuga Heights, May 31

So is this a clarification or a coverup or what?


small-town activist: "The saddest fact of the matter is that an American soldier was quoted as saying that he was ordered to kil women and children, that his assertion was made in a maintream newspaper(Ithaca Journal), that the soldier subsequently modified his statement in a Lettter to the Editor of the same newspaper to allow that he was ordered to kill only women and children who might be "hostile", that everyone, even the Administration, agrees that the Afghan people are innocents, and that we are arguing over whether or not the facts are "right".

It's Vietnam all over again, only on a global scale, with a gloves-off nuclear war policy, space weapons, and ultra-sophisticated propaganda techniques promoting the godliness of belligerence and intolerance."

Also it seems well known that the Taliban didn't (or doesn't) use women as soldiers.
