Where to try the mass murderer?

     U.S. soldier Robert Bales is to be tried for the massacre of Afghan civilians earlier this month. Bales will face 17 counts of murder, reflecting the revised death toll figure of 17 civilian dead. Bales is being held at Fort Leavenworth, Kansas, following his removal from Afghanistan in the days after the shooting. 

Human rights activist Nader Nadery criticized the U.S. military's decision to try Bales outside of Afghanistan.

Afghanistan near the victims (and families) is appropriate.
