Bombers’ Bodies Photos Condemned

According to Defense Secretary Leo Panetta, photos of U.S. soldiers posing with bodies of suspected Afghan insurgents depict behavior that “absolutely violates” U.S. regulations and values.

From CNN:

“This is not who we are, and it’s certainly not who we represent when it comes to the great majority of men and women in uniform who are serving there,” he said.

The two photos published by the paper are among 18 provided by a U.S. soldier who wanted “to draw attention to the safety risk of a breakdown in leadership and discipline,” The Times reported.

The military said an investigation is under way.

    Yes, I’m sure it neither represents the majority of U.S. Servicemen and women, nor surprises me that some DO engage in Behavior like this. Personally, I don’t see why OUR Military is so scrutinized for such things, when it’s perfectly fine for OTHER Countries to send VIDEOS to our Televisions of THEM standing-over and torturing OUR U.S. Hostages. I don’t get the “Gotta Fight Nice” on our part. JMO.
