He didn't see them as humans after being exposed to extreme violence. That's how a former soldier from Midland described his Iraqi murder victims.
Steven Green gave his first interview to the Associated Press since his conviction on killing and raping a 14-year-old Iraqi girl then killing her family.
In the interview, he claims his crimes were fueled in part by experiences in Iraq's violent "Triangle of Death" where two of his sergeants were gunned down. He also cited a lack of leadership and help from the army.
