Video: Marines allegedly urinate on dead taliban


Unless my buddy Torch sends them my way, I usually not too up on viral videos. For instance, the video being passed around this week of Marines allegedly urinating on dead Taliban.

The above is a local news report with a censored version of the video, and here is what Defense Secretary Leon Panetta had to say about it:

“I have seen the footage, and I find the behavior depicted in it utterly deplorable. I condemn it in the strongest possible terms,” Panetta’s statement said. “Those found to have engaged in such conduct will be held accountable to the fullest extent.”

So far, no riots. And hopefully they’re won’t be. Unlike the false report of a soldier at Gitmo flushing a Koran down the toilet that led to deadly rioting in the Mideast, here the desecration is not directly defaming the Muslim faith. But it’s certainly offensive.
