A U.S. soldier under court-martial at a Kentucky military base broke down in tears on Wednesday as he described how he and others planned the rape of a 14-year-old Iraqi girl, murdered along with her family. Sgt. Paul Cortez, 24, is the second U.S. soldier to plead guilty to raping the girl and killing her and her family in Mahmudiya, south of Baghdad, in March 2006. The soldiers then poured kerosene on the girl’s body and lit her on fire in an attempt to cover up the crime.
Cortez, wearing a dress green uniform and flanked by his civilian and military lawyers, described how he, Spc. James Barker and a since-discharged soldier, Pvt. Steven Green, planned the attack over liquor and a game of cards. “While we were playing cards Barker and Green started talking about having sex with an Iraqi female. Barker and Green had already known…” Cortez said before breaking down. He bowed his head and remained silent, sniffling occasionally, for a full minute before continuing.
“Barker and Green had already known what, um, house they wanted to go to … knew only one male was in the house, and knew it would be an easy target,” Cortez said. Once at the house, Green, the suspected ringleader, took the girl’s mother, father and little sister into a bedroom, Cortez said, while he and Barker took the teenager, Abeer Qassim al-Janabi, to the living room.
“She kept squirming and trying to keep her legs closed and saying stuff in Arabic,” Cortez said. “During the time me and Barker were raping Abeer, I heard five or six gunshots that came from the bedroom. After Barker was done, Green came out of the bedroom and said that he had killed them all, that all of them were dead,” Cortez said.
“Green then placed himself between Abeer’s legs to rape her,” Cortez said, sniffing audibly. When Green was finished, he “stood up and shot Abeer in the head two or three times.” The entire crime took about five minutes to carry out, he added.
Cortez said the girl knew her parents and sister had been shot while she was being raped. He said she screamed and cried throughout the assault.”
The terror regimes of USA and UK are abusing, torturing, raping, killing innocent Iraqis, yet the world is keeping silent over whatever is going on there. May Allah destroy these kuffars regimes and give victory to our Mujahideen.
