The suspect in last weekend's shooting deaths of 16 Afghan civilians is Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, a military source and a senior defense official told CNN.
Bales was being transferred Fort Leavenworth, Kansas. His attorney, John Henry Browne, raised issues of stress and multiple deployments that hinted at a possible defense strategy.
Earlier in the day, Afghan President Hamid Karzai cast doubt on the account of events given by U.S. authorities as he met with families of the slain civilians.
