Video appears to show marines urinating on bodies, sparking military investigationhttp://www.foxnews.com/us/2012/01/11/video-marines-urinating-on-dead-sparks-investigation/
Quote
The U.S. Marine Corps is launching an investigation into a video that recently surfaced online showing what appears to be several Marines in uniform urinating on corpses.

The video, which started Wednesday morning making the rounds on the Web, shows four men in full Marine combat gear standing over the bodies of what appear to be dead Taliban fighters. They look around before proceeding to urinate over the corpses. One of the men can be heard saying, “Have a great day, buddy.”

According to TMZ, the unnamed person responsible for posting the video included a caption reading, "scout sniper team 4 with 3rd battalion 2nd marines out of camp lejeune peeing on dead talibans," though it wasn't immediately clear if any of that information was accurate.

'Deplorable': U.S. defense chief condemns urinating Marines video

U.S. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has condemned a video that apparently shows U.S. Marines urinating on the corpses of Afghan men, promising to punish those involved.

"I have seen the footage, and I find the behavior depicted in it utterly deplorable," Panetta says in a statement, adding that he had ordered the Marine Corps and the commander of U.S. and NATO troops in Afghanistan to investigate the incident.

"Those found to have engaged in such conduct will be held accountable to the fullest extent," he says.

The video that surfaced a day earlier appeared to show American forces urinating on the bodies of dead Taliban fighters could aggravate anti-American sentiment in Afghanistan as the Obama administration hopes to end a decade-long war.

I wonder if this was posted on the internet in order to blow up the peace talks with the terrorists.

The message we should be sending is that we will piss on your bodies, and mix your blood with that of a pig.  We are at war, and things happen, but watch, these four will have their lives destroyed because they did their job, and got carried away with the show.

This will be great incentive for other warriors to go forth and defend our country. 

I say get the hell out of these arab countries, get out right now.  And if they have al queda come back, nuke the sh*t out of them.

We have a bunch of pansies running this government.

Panetta: Apparent Marine desecration of Taliban corpses is ‘utterly deplorable’
http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/checkpoint-washington/post/us-military-karzai-strongly-condemn-apparent-marine-desecration-of-taliban-corpses/2012/01/12/gIQADTmDtP_blog.html

Top U.S. officials moved swiftly Thursday to try to prevent diplomatic damage and contain public disgust from the release of a video that appeared to show Marines urinating on three Afghan corpses — images that spread quickly around the globe.

Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta said he had viewed the video and considered it “utterly deplorable.” He telephoned Afghan President Hamid Karzai and pledged a full investigation.

Prior to the call, Karzai described the video as “completely inhumane and condemnable in the strongest possible terms.” His administration called on the U.S. military to “apply the most severe punishment to anyone found guilty in this crime.”

The video, which runs for less than a minute, depicts four Marines in combat gear laughing and joking as they urinate on three male bodies. The caption refers to the corpses as “dead Talibans,” but it is unclear whether the men were civilians or fighters killed after a battle.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton expressed “total dismay” at the behavior depicted in the recording, and said the “vast, vast” majority of American military personnel would not engage in such actions.
The left is going to have a field day with this.

watch.  they will blame george bush.  I have read that they identified two of the four marines, and they have left the service.  it will turn out that this happened during the bush administration.

it would have to be that way, wouldn't it?  after all, we don't piss on people during the Obamagastic Era of Enlightenment.

correct.  so, to clarify:  the good navy SEALs that heroically killed bin laden belong to OBAMA.  the bad men that were pissing on the dead terrorists belong to BUSH.

a bit more info regarding the time frame.  7 months before last september (2009) is still 2009, and BHO was president.  maybe the obamites will prove that all four are republicans.

Quote
Investigators moved quickly to identify and interview at least two of the four Marines. They were members of a battalion that fought for seven months in former Taliban strongholds in southern Afghanistan.

Their unit, the 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines, returned from Helmand province to its home base at Camp Lejeune, N.C., last September. Marine officials said that a battalion officer confirmed to investigators on Thursday, based on his examination of the video, that the four men depicted urinating had been members of the battalion. Two have since moved on to other units.

Just FYI, there was no change to your post, Vonne.  I was trying to quote it.  but the "modify" and "quote" buttons are annoyingly close together.  an inadvertent "misclick".  my apologies.

2 U.S. marines in urinating video ID'd by corps
http://www.cbc.ca/news/world/story/2012/01/12/marines-taliban-video-urinating.html
Quote
An official says the U.S. Marine Corps has identified at least two of the four marines in an internet video that purports to depict them urinating on Taliban corpses in Afghanistan.

A marine official said Thursday that the four were members of the 3rd Battalion, 2nd Marines, which returned to its home base in North Carolina last fall after a tour in Afghanistan. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because a criminal investigation is underway.

The official said that at least some of the four marines are no longer in that battalion. He provided no other details.

    'We condemn this apparent desecration of the dead as a violation of our nation's military regulations and of international laws of war prohibiting such disgusting and immoral actions.'—Council on Islamic-American Relations

The matter is being investigated, including by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS), the worldwide law enforcement arm of the navy.

Earlier Thursday, Defence Secretary Leon Panetta phoned Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai and promised a full investigation of the video, which they both condemned as deplorable.

In a separate public statement, Panetta said such behaviour is "entirely inappropriate for members of the United States military" and that those responsible will be held accountable.

The video, posted on the internet, shows men in marine combat gear standing in a semi-circle over three bodies. It's not clear whether the dead were Taliban or civilians or someone else. The title on the posting called them Taliban insurgents and said the men were from Camp Lejeune, N.C., but officials would not immediately confirm it.

Officials said they had not yet verified the video's origin or authenticity, but had no evidence to doubt what it was.

"It clearly appears to be to us what it appears to be to you — troops urinating on corpses," Pentagon spokesman Capt. John Kirby told reporters Thursday morning.
