Attorney: Bales a Blank on Massacre

The attorney who defended Ted Bundy and Colton Harris-Moore, the so-called Barefoot Bandit, met with his newest client Monday. Army staff Sgt. Robert Bales, accused of killing 16 Afghan civilians more than a week ago, had "no memory" of the killings, only of events before and after, Seattle attorney John Henry Browne said after meeting his client at Fort Leavenworth in Kansas. He said he was deeply moved by the soldier’s account of life on the ground in Afghanistan, asserting that “it’s totally different when you hear about it from somebody who’s been there.” Browne has addressed the media repeatedly since he was brought on for the defense. In their first meeting, Browne and other defense attorneys spoke with Bales for more than seven hours.
