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.
