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.
“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.
