Wasilla Soldier Who Murdered Afghans For Fun Also Posed With Their Heads

by Jack Stuef

You don't get to do this in the video games!
Another proud product of Wasilla, Alaska, Army Specialist Jeremy Morlock has plead guilty to three counts of murder for killing Afghan civilians to pass the time when he wasn’t killing the other kind of Afghans. But that’s not all! Some of Morlock’s comrades have also been charged with following his lead to murder these people, and doing so while on drugs. Usually, this would be just another “unfortunate murders in a murder zone of important murders” story, and everyone’s eyes would glaze over, but now there are pixxx.

Specialist Jeremy Morlock and Private Andrew Holmes are shown holding up the head of a man identified by Germany’s Der Spiegel newspaper as Gul Mudin, an unarmed Afghan they are accused of killing on January 15, 2010.

Whoops! The Army has apologized, though, so everything should be okay.

Many organisations with foreign staff, including the United Nations, ordered a “lockdown” on Sunday night and told employees to stay in their compounds, anticipating violent protests in response to the release, the Guardian newspaper reported.

We can be proud that the recent high-school grads we arm with expensive weapons, ship off to a foreign land for the first time in their lives, and tell to exhibit the best ethics in determining which brown people they’re allowed to kill are just mature enough that the photos they take posing with the heads of people they murdered are not also sexts of themselves. This Wasilla gentleman kept it in his pants. [Al Jazeera/Reddit]

So, is this where the heads from Jan Brewer's "headless bodies" ended up?

Gopherit March 21, 2011 at 11:24 am

Jan Brewer….a brainless body yammering about headless ones.

What exactly is the per capita moran export of Wasilla? It seems statistically impossible to have so much societal flotsam and jetsam from one small meth infested town.

MildMidwesterner March 21, 2011 at 10:29 am

I believe the statistical term for Wasilla is "outlier."

forgracie March 21, 2011 at 10:40 am

That's a nice way of saying "freak show" isn't it?

Ducksworthy March 28, 2011 at 5:24 pm

I think that would be Homer, its like acid versus Wasilla's meth.

DashboardBuddha March 21, 2011 at 12:27 pm

whereas the technical term for Sarah is "liar".

Not_So_Much March 21, 2011 at 10:57 am

Plus, his name is 'Morlock' — it's like they aren't even trying to make us not detest them.

twoeightnine March 21, 2011 at 11:56 am

Not sure how but it's 2. And that seems low.

[redacted]hse March 21, 2011 at 12:21 pm

It's a cesspool.

marinmaven March 21, 2011 at 1:14 pm

I might be willing to wager that there is a correlation if not a causal link between "meth infested" and "moranic" poor choices. Meth exposure is all about poor choices.

I fear it's a microcosm of America.

SorosBot March 21, 2011 at 10:13 am

But remember: they hate us for our freedoms, not for anything we've actually done.

DaRooster March 21, 2011 at 10:47 am

I am sure that guy just misunderstood when he was told, "We are here to protect you from danger and usher in freedom and peace to the region."
Because everyone in the real world knows that is how we roll.

arihaya March 21, 2011 at 12:14 pm

"We are here to protect you from danger and usher in freedom and peace to the region."

sezme March 21, 2011 at 11:14 am

I wonder if Gul Mudin's head appreciates its newfound freedom. Edit: oh, I just noticed that the head he posed with wasn't actually severed. So Morlock obviously needs some remedial lessons in the war crime atrocity department.

GOPCrusher March 21, 2011 at 1:01 pm

The sick part of this whole thing, is they use the justification of "Well, the Muslims behead their enemies." to commit their war crimes.
They should just come right out and say "Fuck em. They're brown and deserve to die." because that's what they really mean.

教授 Zoom March 21, 2011 at 11:26 am

Also, to suggest that they hate us for anything we do is, in itself, evidence of an irrational hatred of America.

EDIT: "The highest treason in the USA is to say Americans are not loved, no matter where they are, no matter what they are doing there."

Those Afghans were freed from the tyranny of having to metabolize day in and day out just to survive!

bagofmice March 21, 2011 at 1:13 pm

Day comes in, day goes out. Never a miscommunication.

James Michael Curley March 21, 2011 at 12:11 pm

The simple stupidity of Bush and his 'base' always amazed me. It 'they hate us for our fredom' why in hell did he spend eight years and a Trillion and a half dollars trying to give them freedom?

LetUsBray March 21, 2011 at 10:14 am

It's time to admit that the pooch has been screwed repeatedly in Afghanistan and that it's time to get the fuck out, if not five or six years ago, then at least yesterday.

freakishlywrong March 21, 2011 at 10:23 am

But then we would look weak, we'd "lose". Conservatives would be braying, (sorry), that Obamer is soft of terror. "Dithering", "mau mau revolutions", "a Muslin" Y'know, we can write this shit ourselves it's so predictable.

DaRooster March 21, 2011 at 10:50 am

"…Y'know, we can write this shit ourselves it's so predictable…"

Or we can shit ourselves 'cuz its so predictable, right?

V5¹6℠56³94 March 21, 2011 at 11:03 am

He's already 1.5 unemployment points away from a one-term presidency, so how about doing the right thing?

GeorgiaBurning March 21, 2011 at 1:47 pm

I agree. Afghanistan is a bracket buster in any invasion pool. The Mongols got past them, but they took out the Persians, the Brits, and the Russians in previous years. The US has problems with the smaller game Afghans play but our coaches are still in love with using big forwards and a slow back court.

HempDogbane March 21, 2011 at 10:14 am

Well?

Oh wait, forgot the Harpy…

GregComlish March 21, 2011 at 10:15 am

"He kept it in his pants"

?

Really? Maybe in this particular frame. It looks me to like his free hand was well on his way to his balls. He was probably going for the classic "tea-bag the Muslin corpse" photo gag.

zhubajie March 22, 2011 at 12:09 am

In all seriousness, they probably don't keep in it their pants before they meet the females. :-(

Ducksworthy March 28, 2011 at 5:30 pm

Nor the 15 year old males, also. Not if you're from Wasilla.

ThankYouJeebus March 21, 2011 at 10:16 am

Plagiarism! HG Wells already wrote about subterranean Morlocks.

This guy is from the Arctic subspecies of Morlock. Even worse…

OkieDokieDog March 21, 2011 at 10:16 am

I eagerly await Diane Sawyer's breathy retelling (with frowny face) of this grisley murder on tonight's evening news.

What? It won't get mentioned?

Oblios_Cap March 21, 2011 at 11:09 am

Maybe on CBS, who made a piece on the Triangle Shirt Factory fire yesterday into a puff piece about how the poor owners' of the company suffered even worse than the unfortunate workers.

I'm sure Mr. Morlock will be potrayed as the victim here.

PresBeeblebrox March 21, 2011 at 9:24 pm

No. Which is why Baby Jeebus created Al Jazeera.

Zvi_Bleindmeis March 21, 2011 at 10:49 am

Yes, welcome back, Jack.

Maybe the average Japanese citizen is taller these days, but a few decade ago, to be a gringo pedestrian in Tokyo meant walking among a million umbrella-spines right at eye level.

bagofmice March 21, 2011 at 1:15 pm

Still true in Chinatown. Seriously, those cheap umbrellas are scary.

anyone with a Great White Hunter in the family knows this shit-eating "I done shot me somethin!" grin. That Afghan dude's antlers are mounted on the wall of one trailer or another…

Pithaughn March 21, 2011 at 11:02 am

trailer? You should see the dead animals on display in the typical "Mountain Lodge" in Telluride, Aspen, Vail etc. These are just the grunts on the ground. The reason this happens is the elites in this country are totally on board with such behavior. They like to see shit like this.

4TheTurnstiles March 21, 2011 at 12:29 pm

Jeez, you make it sound like Dick Cheney's the kind of guy who'd shoot his friends in the face just to get an erection…

To be fair, in Wasilla there's no bag limit for Eloi.

No wonder the snowbilly got elected. With fucking Einsteins like this casting ballots.

undeterredbyreality March 21, 2011 at 10:20 am

Where's the video of Sarah Palin pardoning another Afghan while Morlock puts this one in a meat grinder?

user-of-owls March 21, 2011 at 10:21 am

I was perfectly willing to accept this so-called "atrocity" or "war crime" as simply another unfortunate example of "boys being boys."

But then I noticed that they had carved a Zorro "Z" on the corpse's back and, well, that's just not cricket.

MittsHairHelmet March 21, 2011 at 10:24 am

I wonder how many times this maniac has been deployed.

Lascauxcaveman March 21, 2011 at 12:22 pm

In fairness, I'm wondering if he was a maniac before he was deployed, or just another uneducated kid from small town America.

zhubajie March 22, 2011 at 12:11 am

The Army has been lowering it's standards quite a bit in recent years. :-(

Wasilla should be quarantined until further notice. You should be able to check in, but never leave.

I was watching the Alaske "COPS" show and the lawmen were commenting on how all the scum from Anchorage tends to end up in Wasilla.

Afghanistan is such a clusterfuck, even our rebellious puppet there sucks. Hamid Karzai, in 9 years, still has yet to extend the authority of his regime beyond the borders of Kabul. Thats in 9 years. Shouldn't we call him "mayor" rather than "President?"

Moonbat March 21, 2011 at 10:41 am

We should call him and let him know he's on his own, is what we should do.

Pithaughn March 21, 2011 at 11:52 am

You realize he is a former employee of the Bush family right? He is just a meat puppet as our former president that started that war.

BerkeleyBear March 21, 2011 at 1:31 pm

He's also the winner of the greatest CIA lottery ever held, which he won only becasue the other guys were all either the wrong ethnic group (non-Pashtun) or conveniently got killed too soon.

Dudleydidwrong March 21, 2011 at 10:29 am

Wasilla's DQ (Dink Quotient) is exceedingly high. Must be in the water. Or meth. I assume that the Wasilla school system sent this young man off to war with a grand ceremony of pride and patriotism. Now I wonder if they'll send a delegation to Leavenworth to welcome him back. Does that key to the city work any other locks?

GeorgiaBurning March 21, 2011 at 1:50 pm

Ask the guy at the gas station who gives it to you.

Chillwaver March 21, 2011 at 10:31 am

And this has absolutely no effect on the proliferation of Al Qaeda. That's why we must investigate homegrown Muslin Terrist first.

When Joker ("Full Metal Jacket") said he wanted to be the first on his block to get a confirmed kill, he was taking in that dark humor of soldiers, or in that case, Marines.

He didn't mean literally.

Jack, iffin' yer still in Japan you better get some of those masks as the winds from Glow-in-the-Dark Prefecture, that previously was blowing out to sea, have changed and are now carrying the nasties to the southwest. And the Japanese PM says all is a-okay although they just evacuated workers from Reactor # 3.

Political smoke & mirrors is fully into globalization.

KathrynSane March 21, 2011 at 10:40 am

What bothers me most about these kinds of pictures is the fact that the people doing this heinous shit are always smiling. How badly does a society need to fuck up in order to produce so many people who not only torture and kill innocent people, but do it with childlike glee?

Mumbletypeg March 21, 2011 at 10:57 am

Same here. No snark for this scene. Even just seeing the link-headline I felt a twist in my gut. My earliest-early childhood nightmare that I still recall ended w/ a view of a beheading. A guy hung from his ankles. The head floated away in a river of mud. I had to be 7 or so, not yet into horror flicks; who knows what fed that image into my young subconscience.
And I'm a relatively tame civilized type as far as mumbetysomethings go.. What in the hell kind of images pass through the minds of those kinked out on corpse-flaying>>flaunting? — I don't dare imagine.

tessiee March 21, 2011 at 3:20 pm

You're probably not old enough to remember news stories about the My Lai massacre during the Vietnam era. Lt. Calley had the same grin. Guys like this are smiling — no, grinning — because they're pleased with themselves and proud of themselves for having snuffed out a "worthless" life.

horsedreamer_1 March 21, 2011 at 10:42 am

As with Cheddar Bob in Jarhead, Morlock referred to his kill, Mudin, as "A-hab the A-rab". No one had the intelligence heart to tell the soldier that Afghans are not Arabs.

SorosBot March 21, 2011 at 10:51 am

Well I guess that the noted racist and teabagger novelty singer Ray Stevens should be happy that someone actually remembers his old racist song.

Moonbatting Average March 21, 2011 at 10:44 am

His name is Morlock, for fuck's sake. Not only is this an assault on humanity and decency, it has set the corpse of irony afire.

Why can't Americans just kill other foreign people without being posers? Would it hurt to just mindlessly slaughter them and leave their bodies alone..jeez.

Lascauxcaveman March 21, 2011 at 3:45 pm

Given her lust for hockey players, that could have been a possibility at one time: Morlock and big brother Track Palin played on the same hockey team for a number of years. One supposes they at least knew each other.

back in the states it is murder. in haliburtistan it is collateral freedom.

In Haliburtistan, it also would have been the subject of mandatory binding arbitration along with other crimes like gang rape… at least until Al Franken stepped in to cut that shit out.

So, obviously, as small as Wasilla is, Caribou Lou for sure knows this guy… and probably his whole family. It's almost like photos of Lynndie England in a three-way with the Bush twins. Only hotter. I wonder if Bristol has some party pix with him hidden in her fat rolls somewhere.

There's the crux of the problem: We're fighting for the Second Amendment, while the Afghans are more interested in the Third.

PsycWench March 21, 2011 at 11:12 am

! The Army has apologized, though, so everything should be okay.
A real apology or a "I'm sorry if you're upset that we killed some of your civilians" pseudo-apology?

No fair, MSM! All your attention is supposed to be on Libya! Squirrel!

Monsieur_Grumpe March 21, 2011 at 11:20 am

The act of murdering people is usually looked upon as a sign of evil or instability. Unfortunately war can sometimes blur and confuse this concept. But when you pose with the victim while smiling you’re not only friggin nuts you are stupid.

mumbly_ジョジョ March 21, 2011 at 4:11 pm

Meh, Ilario Pantano did basically that, and he nearly got elected to Congress.

Also, had a hilariously quasi-fascist banner on his campaign website. "Peace through Strength", indeed.

mrblifil March 21, 2011 at 11:30 am

There is a lesson to be learned here. It is always OK to kill the brownz, but it is wrong to be photographed laughing about it. Henceforward, killing the brownz should always be carried out in concert with killing whoever the fuck has a camera, or Android fucking phone, or iPad or some such stupid shit. Seriously, a fucking camera pose of this shit? Is our children learning? Have a laugh and photograph each other's nutsacks if you must, but this kind of shit is just an embarrassment to everybody.

So to recap: Kill the Brownz in my name, if you must, it's what my taxpayer dollars are for, I guess. But show some class, even if your mom couldn't teach it to you.

GOPCrusher March 21, 2011 at 1:17 pm

Oh I don't know. Look at how Lynddie England's career took off after being photographed pointing at a butt pyramid of Muslim prisoners with a Marlboro hanging off her lip.
And Al Queda grabbed all the WMD's and fled Iraq, after she showed them that America meant business in this War On Terror.

PS: I understand neither "Army" nor "girlfriend." Are they saying a) the Army is my girlfriend; b) my girlfriend is in the Army; c) I am in the Army and I have a girlfriend; or d) fnord?

DashboardBuddha March 21, 2011 at 11:42 am

I think it means, "stop hitting on me, my boyfriend (aka baby daddy) is a soldier".

Or Fnord.

dox[acted] March 21, 2011 at 11:58 am

It's like being a "band girlfriend," only way more depressing.

"One of the great American tragedies is to have participated in a just war. It's been possible for politicians and movie-makers to encourage us we're always good guys. The Second World War absolutely had to be fought. I wouldn't have missed it for the world. But we never talk about the people we kill. This is never spoken of."

–Kurt Vonnegut

Nonsense. PFC Bradley Manning killed EVERYONE in Afghanistan.

"We can be proud that the recent high-school grads we arm with expensive weapons, ship off to a foreign land for the first time in their lives, and tell to exhibit the best ethics in determining which brown people they’re allowed to kill are just mature enough that the photos they take posing with the heads of people they murdered …"

That right and that's why we should send the people who start the wars to fight them. Do you think G.W. Bush, Dick Chaney or Donnie Rumsfeld would be cutting off people's heads for entertain….oh…uh, well…never mind.

Going against the current usage, but the Ugly American was actually the only good guy in the book.

riverside68 March 21, 2011 at 4:19 pm

Not to be confused with the Quiet American, the only bad guy in the book.

MORLOCKS, in my army? It's more common than you'd think!

They used to post guys with just a couple of months left after returning from Vietnam as assistants in Basic Training. We had a couple of guys from the same mortar team busy showing us ears on necklaces as our after-hours "training" in '67.

I believe this is the point in the horror movie when the menacing disembodied voice says "Get out". Unfortunately, America is the slutty blonde girl in the story, and she is therefore doomed.

LiveToServeYa March 21, 2011 at 12:58 pm

As an aside: I don't think disembodied voices give warning before the mayhem begins, anymore.

What always kills me is the pictures: "Oh, hey guys, let's take a photo for posterity. I want to be able to show my grandkids that grampa was a badass motherfucker who'd slit a man's goddamn throat for nothing and rape its corpse. Let's remember this moment forever!"

Steverino247 March 21, 2011 at 12:15 pm

This is not a new story. These guys have been in deep shit up at Ft. Lewis, WA since they got back. The local papers (Tacoma News-Tribune, for one–see here: http://www.thenewstribune.com/2011/03/20/1593134/… have been covering the hearings, etc. These assholes will spend the rest of their lives serving very long prison sentences. The only "new" part of this is the fact that the evidence photos were released. Doing that only jeopardizes soldiers who are still there and possibly fucks up the legal proceedings.

That war does this to humans is, sadly, not news. I once served with a man who, irritated that his wife had no clue what he was doing in Vietnam ("We're on the fucking news! How could she not fucking know?"), sent her a photograph of himself with an NVA soldier he had just killed. I never saw the photo, but I know what the grin looked like.

BlueMonkeh March 21, 2011 at 4:19 pm

maybe…but this stuff is being "done in our name" and transparency and all and….oh jeezus i give up.

Typical_Outlier March 21, 2011 at 12:38 pm

Hey, thanks for demonstrating that narrow-minded, vitriolic generalizations are not entirely dictated by political affiliations. As a staunch liberal, I used to believe I was aligning myself with those who form opinions of others based on merit rather than preconceived ideas about their backgrounds. As a person who was raised in the Wasilla that exists in this universe, as opposed to the backwater meth-saturated hellhole many of you have envisioned, I am thoroughly fucking disappointed to discover exactly how wrong I was. Maybe it's a joke to all of you, but it honestly pains me to realize how easily we can match our most fervent criticisms of those on the right. Seriously, I despise Sarah Palin and her supporters at least as strongly as any of you, but ridiculing people based on where they live is low. If we can't decide to be better examples of reasonable human beings than the people whose behavior we detest, then what are we doing? Maybe my meth-encrusted neural circuitry is too weak to understand why this is acceptable.

donner_froh March 21, 2011 at 12:40 pm

Those young men from Wasila really know how to get ahead in life.

I can already hear my brother blubbering about how these kinds of incidents are few and far between. And how it's just us muckrakers who are making it look so bad.

Now, if you'll all join me in song…

_MISS_T_ March 21, 2011 at 1:22 pm

I can't bear to click and look at the pics. But…is the guy in the blingee one alive or dead? His head is still attached right? Right? I feel sick.

Anyway. Only commenting because I want to make it known that the Morlocks and the Palins are very well acquanted..or rather they're friends (the families, probably less likely Sarah herself, I doubt she has friends). April Morlock, Jeremy's younger sister, is Bristols best friend. And I'm pretty sure that the house dear charming Willow trashed with her friends was a Morlock property. Needless to say things have probably cooled since then…

Ah, Wasilla. What would we do without ya.

Actually, Jack, you can do that in video games, as anyone who's played enough Halo is well-aware. You just stand over the body and press "crouch" repeatedly.

PublicLuxury March 21, 2011 at 4:19 pm

More Foreign Policy experience for the Palin. Somehow these stupid fucks are related to Palin. They have to be. That much stupid cannot possibly be flowing from more than one gene pool.

Negropolis March 21, 2011 at 11:32 pm

This is why America can't have nice things, and this is why troops on the ground is absolutely where I draw the line on Libya. You can't trust an American much anywhere, these days, but you most certainly can't on the ground. Once the boots hit the ground, the shit hits the fan.

poncho_pilot March 22, 2011 at 12:55 am

pics or it didn't happen. ugh.

schvitzatura March 22, 2011 at 6:37 am

Sounds like Morlock already had multiple TBIs from playing hockey with Track Palin & Friends from high school…also being from some Wasilla shithole, the light and space of Kandahar really put the zap on his head.

Da Armee:

"The photos appear in stark contrast to the discipline, professionalism and respect that has characterized our Soldiers' performance during nearly 10 years of sustained operations."

Can't wait to see the photography from the next 10 years…

Dr_pangloss March 22, 2011 at 7:42 am

I'm sure he did it all for Jebus too. Mutherfucking christ on a stick, can anyone explain why we are still there.. really? Anyone?

Steverino247 March 23, 2011 at 12:29 pm

This just in: Morlock is going to take 24 years and testify against the others to avoid life.

Mike Licht March 26, 2011 at 12:45 pm

And this guy is among the Wasilla elite. He's a H.S. grad, and the high school there is considered a "dropout factory." They have a few real factories there — they produce amphetamines.

Ducksworthy March 28, 2011 at 5:37 pm

Yes. And the meth habit makes you particularly touchy.
