U.S. soldier gets 100-year sentence for rape, slaying of Iraqi teen

A U.S. soldier was sentenced to 100 years in prison Thursday for his role in the gang rape and slaying of Iraqi girl and the killing of her family.

Sgt. Paul E. Cortez, 24, was one of five American soldiers implicated in the notorious attack in March 2006 in Mahmoudiya, a town 30 kilometres south of Baghdad.

Cortez is the second soldier from the 101st Airborne Division to be sentenced, while the three others are awaiting trials.

Before Cortez's sentence was handed down Thursday by a military court in Fort Campbell, Ky., he apologized for raping 14-year-old Abeer Qassim al-Janabi and killing her, her parents and her younger sister.

Cortez, tears rolling down his face, said he could not explain why he took part.

"I still don't have an answer," Cortez told the military judge hearing the case, Col. Stephen R. Henley.

"I don't know why. I wish I hadn't. The lives of four innocent people were taken. I want to apologize for all of the pain and suffering I have caused the al-Janabi family."

Cortez, who is from Barstow, Calif., pleaded guilty earlier in the week to four counts of felony murder, rape and conspiracy to rape.

He was found not guilty of more serious charges of premeditated murder and conspiracy to premeditated murder.

The court gave Cortez a dishonourable discharge from the military.

He will be eligible for parole in 10 years, according to the terms of his plea agreement.
Actions out of character: fellow soldiers

Psychologist Charles Figley had testified that Cortez and the other soldiers likely suffered stress brought on by fatigue and trauma.

"It eats you up," Figley said. "It's a horrible thing. This is not unique. We've seen this in other wars."

Soldiers who served with Cortez in Iraq testified that his actions were out of character. They described the hardships of they experienced in Iraq, including sleep deprivation and the lack of running water.

"I just never would have seen it coming," said Staff Sgt. Tim Briggs, who has known Cortez for five years.

Prosecutors argued that stress was no excuse.

On Wednesday, Cortez described the graphic details of the attack to the court, explaining how he and Specialist James Barker raped the girl in her family home.

Cortez said former private Steven D. Green raped the girl in front of him. Green then shot her father, mother and sister before turning his gun on the girl and shooting her in the head.

Cortez said the soldiers attempted to burn the girl's body to hide the evidence. They also burned their own clothes and threw the gun, an AK-47, in a canal.

Barker, 24, pleaded guilty to rape and murder in November 2006 and was sentenced to 90 years in military prison.

Pte. 1st Class Jesse Spielman, 22, and Pte. 1st Class Bryan Howard, 19, await courts martial.

Green is accused of being the ringleader of the group. He was discharged from the military before being charged and will be prosecuted in a federal court in Kentucky.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You know its terrible what he did, disgusting. All the cases of torture and other things. But I almost feel sorry for this guy, and some of the others on the infantry, running around murdering people on order all day for months...must get to you so eventually you start to be unable to differentiate between innocence.

Anyways he deserves it...but I've seen alot less been given to domestic rapist and killers who didn't have any excuse. On the other hand they weren't representing their country.

(although I dont feel for the Abu Grieb guards those people were simply pieces of fucking shit and I hope they rot in hell)
Do you really think your a higher form of life? You...With your dripping jaws, and your bloodshot eyes. You...With your varicosities and your vermin for an appendix. You...with your hemroids and assterioids. Often I wake up at night and ponder these matters. And then I feel very strongly that I should talk them over with Brother Theodore...and then, and then I wake up fully and remember that I am Brother Theodore. And my heart aches. And my tears flow. And I see my Aunt Marie floating in the chicken soup...more dead than alive...more naked than not. And oh, now I see a mailman, a mailman giving birth to a dog of all things!

Never a moments peace, never a moments peace...never a moments peace.

War crimes breed Real crimes.

I think that the soldiers know they are there for no reason, and they see their friends die. This, of course, does not justify his actions in the slightest. Justice has not fully been served. Only when the world leaders are hung from the highest tree and the people take back their nation will justice really be served.

"The last point to consider before returning to the plight of Ian Huntley and Maxine Carr, is the strange fate of four wives at Fort Bragg in North Carolina, the former home base of Staff Sergeant Ronghi. All four wives were allegedly killed by their Sergeant husbands when they returned from active duty in Afghanistan, during the same week that Holly Wells and Jessica Chapman went missing. US Army authorities are currently trying to establish whether or not an anti-malarial drug all were taking contributed to the murders. The drug is acknowledged to have extra-pyramidal psychotic side-effects, and is prescribed to all US Servicemen in Afghanistan.
There are no direct flights out of Afghanistan to the USA, meaning that all American servicemen including those seriously affected by the drug, and also affected by PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) are obliged to change aircraft either in Germany or in England – normally at USAF Mildenhall. As a matter of urgency the British public should shame their local police into establishing accurately how many of these servicemen transited through USAF Mildenhall and USAF Lakenheath during the week that Holly and Jessica vanished."
