The Pentagon has been silent on whether Staff Sgt. Robert Bales, responsible for the massacre of 17 Afghan civilians, took a controversial anti-malaria drug called Mefloquine. Mefloquine, also known as Lariam, is reported to cause paranoia and hallucinations in soldiers. After the massacre, the Pentagon issued a emergency review of the drug and they will not confirm or deny whether Bales took the drug.
