Afghan 'kill team' leader Gibbs was framed, defense says

Alleged Army “kill team” leader Staff Sgt. Calvin Gibbs would celebrate whenever he or his soldiers shot Afghan men during their deployment with a Joint Base Lewis-McChord Stryker brigade last year, his attorney acknowledged Monday. Gibbs would pose for photos and even clip body parts from the victims as “war trophies,” he said.
