Soldier's lawyer: Afghan shooting case 'tough to prove'

The attorney representing Robert Bales, the American soldier accused of shooting and killing 17 civilians in Afghanistan says his client has memory problems that have kept him from explaining what may have happened the night of the shooting spree. Bales, his lawyer says, also can't remember what–if any–medications he was taking.

As for defending Bales, attorney John Henry Browne says PTSD will certainly play a role, but for prosecutors, it will be a "tough case to prove."

    If you search SSgt Bales specific case remember the military is not fond of releasing the medications or drugs they give to each solider. Anthrax was given in multiple does in desert storm and a great little pill called prostigmin bromide. The last was to help with nerve gas but it made thousands of service members deathly ill. They refused to put a lot of these in vaccination record.

    I know that it is news when lawyers defend their client on tv .It is injustice for the defendant because the jury 's pool is being contaminated.
