Quote
An American soldier says he released the photos to the Los Angeles Times to draw attention to the safety risk of a breakdown in leadership and discipline. The Army has started a criminal investigation.


Quote
The soldier who provided The Times with a series of 18 photos of soldiers posing with corpses did so on condition of anonymity. He served in Afghanistan with the 82nd Airborne's 4th Brigade Combat Team from Ft. Bragg, N.C. He said the photos point to a breakdown in leadership and discipline that he believed compromised the safety of the troops.

He expressed the hope that publication would help ensure that alleged security shortcomings at two U.S. bases in Afghanistan in 2010 were not repeated. The brigade, under new command but with some of the same paratroopers who served in 2010, began another tour in Afghanistan in February.

This looks really bad for Obama!  can't blame Bushy for this one

He may be able to dodge this bullet since he has human shields out in front of him while he leads from behind.

To hell with how bad it looks for Obama.  This is bad for those of us in uniform...period.

This hit Drudge just as I was getting ready to leave today.  The NATO folks were meeting in Brussels...THIS was being talked about.

I just really would like to know something.  Someone is taking these pics, they are going to figure out who took the pics.  WTF?

The couple of pictures that I saw didn't look like they were posing with the dead bodies, so much as someone just snapped the pics while soldiers were near the body.  The person taking the pictures could be trying to stir some shit.

Queers joined the military knowing they weren't welcomed there....liberals do it to.

They really don't think about that when they are snap snap snapping away.

We had this discussion on the ride into work this morning.  Most of the dumb shit soldiers get caught doing is because someone thought it would be cool to take a picture.

If they left the camera in their pocket...they'd never get caught.

Well I'm lazy. With all that stuff I see them packing around, I'd be trying to lighten my load....camera would be one of the first things to go.

And again, where are the pictures and videos of these suicide bombers walking into schools and pulling this shit?  Where's the outrage over that?

Sorry, but this is TWO YEARS AGO.  NOW this becomes an issue?

Sounds to me more like someone wants to piss on our troops more than take care of any disciplinary issues.  Yeah, it's stupid, but hate to say it, it's nothing that hasn't happened in virtually every army in wars previous going back, oh, ****ing forever.  Stand by for the religion of perpetual outrage to riot again.

True that.  My Granddad had some not so flattering pics from Italy.  It doesn't make it right, it just shouldn't make it news.

I am tired of the PC faux outrage in the media...and I just don't care anymore.
If these are despicable muslim taliban or terrorists...sure send the heads home as trophies. Make a necklace of ears. Beat the living crap outa terrorist detainees.

We can play nice and these animals will still seek to kill us. Kill them, leave their naked bodies in embarrassing poses for their muslim buddies to find...just KILL them.
muslim scum get offended by ANYTHING. No use trying to respect their ways...it will never be good enough.

Bottom line: We will eventually leave. But when we do, the survivors need to quake in fear at the mere thought of  ever doing anything that might make us come back again

I agree, but the idiots in charge lack the will to wage this war the way I think it should be waged.  Our troops die due to the ridiculous ROEs that they placed upon them.

There was some ex-military guy on Fox News earlier who ripped Obama and everyone else up one side and down the other for throwing these guys under the bus.  Everyone in the administration has outright condemned this without one shred of understanding what ten years of war has done to the troops.

So the same bunch of howling savages that happily ululated away while their brothers-in-arms dragged the bodies of US servicemen through the streets are raising stink now ?

F***em.

The same bunch of howling savages that consider it just fine to strap explosives to their children and send them in to blow up other children get snooty when people take pictures with the remains of the carcass of the kid that they sent into harms way ?

Time for a nice warm cup of shut the f*** up you filthy howling savages.

Should count it as a blessing that we didn't just erase you stinking shit hole of a country with you all inside it.

Gee Mr. Mannn, seems like many people forget what  WAR was, is ,and always has been around the world.

The get all upset over trophies of a hunt and kill of humans while they have stuffed heads of wild life they killed and took a head from and placed it in their den or living room.

Warriors take trophies from a kill be it bear claws, human ears, scalps or full skulls.  In our wars our men bring back all kinds of stuff they find on the dead they killed, weapons, knives medals and dog tags.

Don't get me started on the trophies some African tribes get and wear about their neck all shriveled up.  Head hunters in some places, nice Trophies, on to serial Killers that collect underware from the woman they kill.

To Piss on a dead enemy is nothing but to show disdain for them, to collect body parts is another thing, understandable in a fight to the death.    

We Americans have not seen war full out ever, our wars have been centered in small areas, even Sherman march to Atlanta cannot compare to any of most wars in the past.--Slash and burn.

This is NOT a gentlemans war of slapping each other with a white glove.  War is all out brutality and anger at those trying to kill you.    I have no problem with pictures of the enemy being humiliated in death---if such a thing exists.
 
Pictures of the killers in prison being maltreated ---no problem, so pile the killers up necked and take pictures, when these people try to kill you and are  taken alive, bringing in dogs, pigs or a shit load of non poisons snakes to terrorise them is no problem, better they spill their guts about future killings of our people.

WAR, were Hubby to come home with a necklass of 50 shriveled up things on it and tell me this was his trophy from the people that tried to kill him, no problem I would have it framed as a testament to the kids that their dad was a REAL warrior.

Crazy perhaps but no crazier then others in the world have been or are so.
