American terrorist SSG Robert Bales charged with 17 counts of murder in Afghanistan massacre
Army Staff Sgt. Robert Bales was charged Friday with 17 counts of murder and six counts of attempted murder, along with other charges, in connection with a shooting rampage in two southern Afghanistan villages that shocked Americans back home and further roiled U.S.-Afghan relations.
The charges come almost two weeks after the massacre in which Bales allegedly left his base in the early morning hours and shot Afghan civilians, including women and nine children, while they slept in their beds, then burned some of the bodies.

On February 2, 2012 a military judge ruled that American terrorist Nidal Malik Hasan (نضال مالك حسن) will stand trial on June 12, 2012. Lt.Col. Kris Poppe, Hasan's lead attorney, said the request to delay the trial was "purely a matter of necessity of adequate time for pretrial preparation". The prosecution is seeking the death penalty.
Hasan continues to receive paychecks and medical expenses are paid by the military.
