Shocking Video of U.S. Marines Urinating on Dead Bodies Sparks Outcry

by at . Comments

Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai condemned a video depicting what appears to be four U.S. Marines urinating on the dead corpses of Taliban fighters.

A presidential statement described the video as "completely inhumane" and called on the U.S. military to punish the Marines involved in the despicable act.

The U.S. Marine Corps said Wednesday it is investigating the video, which went viral earlier this week, but has not yet verified its origin or authenticity.

The case has been referred to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, the Navy's worldwide law enforcement organization (which inspired the show NCIS).

The Afghan Ministry of Defense also condemned the actions as "shocking." The NATO-led security force in Afghanistan said the following in a statement:

"This disrespectful act is inexplicable and not in keeping with the high moral standards we expect of all coalition forces."

The International Security Assistance Force said the acts "appear to have been conducted by a small group of U.S. individuals apparently no longer serving in Afghanistan."

None of the statements have identified the personnel or explained why the ISAF thought they had left the country. More as the story develops ...

War is ugly, violent and horrible. If the tables were turned, the same thing would have happened. Doesn't make it right, just the way it is.
