Five soldiers are accused of killing unarmed Afghan citizens for sport. They're charged with premeditated murder and conspiracy to commit premeditated murder. A hearing is taking place this week in Tacoma, Washington in the case of Corporal Jeremy Morlock.
In an interview with an army investigator, Corporal Morlock describes a plot led by his superior -- Staff Sgt. Calvin Gibbs -- to randomly kill civilians. Apparently, there are about 70 photographs of these soldiers
posing with dead bodies.
New Yorker writer Philip Gourevitch wrote a book about the scandal at the Iraqi prison where Americans took photos of prisoners that shocked the world. He joins Madeleine to discuss whether we're witnessing another another scandal on the level of Abu Ghraib.
