An American Army Sergeant went crazy and killed a bunch of Afghan civilians. Great. That'll help calm the protests and shit down. (On the other, I don't agree with what he did, in fact I strongly condemn it, but we HAVE had many supposed "friendlies" turn and kill our troops, so I can see why he snapped.)

Amnesty International said in June that Maj. Gen. Abdel Fattah Sisi, a member of the ruling council, had admitted that such tests were carried out “protect the army against possible allegations of rape.” Oh, because obviously if you're not a virgin you can't be raped.
