Killing of Green Beret in Niger looks like a war crime

Washington Post:
U.S. soldier in Niger ambush was bound, apparently executed, villagers say

The body of La David Johnson, one of four U.S. soldiers killed by Islamist militants last month, was found with his arms tied behind his back and had a large gaping wound in the back of his head, according to two villagers who saw his body. The new information raises questions about whether he was captured and killed after the attack, and it could help explain why it took two days to find Johnson's body.
The evidence certainly suggests that he was captured subdued and tied up before he was killed.  That is by definition a war crime.  Unfortunately, it is the nature of the enemy that is out to destroy Western civilization.  We are in a fight with a wicked enemy with no inhibitions.
