FILE - In this April 29, 2009 file photo, former 101st Airborne Division Pfc. Steven Dale Green is escorted to the courthouse on the third day of his trial in Paducah, Ky. Green, an Iraq War veteran serving five life terms for raping and killing a 14-year-old Iraqi girl and killing her parents and sister says he didn't think of civilians as humans after being exposed to extreme war zone violence. Green told The Associated Press in his first media interview since the 2006 killings, that his crimes were fueled in part by experiences in Iraq's particularly violent "Triangle of Death" where two of his sergeants were gunned down. He also cited a lack of leadership and help from the Army. (AP Photo/Mark Humphrey, File)
