    Staff Sgt. Calvin Gibbs was found guilty today of the murders of three Afghan civilians. Gibbs, the highest-ranking of five American soldiers implicated in killing and maiming Afghan civilians and keeping their body parts as war trophies, was sentenced to pote life in military prison. Though Gibbs pleaded not guilty to the murders, he did admit to taking body parts such as fingers from Afghans he said had been killed in militarily legitimate fights. “I compared it to keeping antlers off a deer I shot.”
