    NYT: U.S. Condemns Photos of Soldie

    KABUL - Photographs apparently showing United States soldiers posing with body parts of dead insurgents drew strong condemnation on Wednesday from American officials including Defense Secretary Leon E. Panetta and the commander of international forces in Afghanistan.

    The Los Angeles Times published on the front page of its early editions a photograph of what it described as a soldier from the Army's 82nd Airborne Division with a dead insurgent's hand on his shoulder. It said the photograph was one of 18 of soldiers posing with the corpses of insurgent fighters given to the newspaper by a soldier who served in Afghanistan with the 82nd Airborne's Fourth Brigade Combat Team from Fort Bragg, N.C. The newspaper said the Afghan died planting a bomb, citing police.


    My how the tables have turned....

    Don't hold your breath for the NY Slimes to post any pics and run em for months on end. Don't hold your breath for all the editorials and front page stories in 8 inch letterhead.

    After all Barry is the Prez now and we all know it ain't his fault. LOL

    There's nothing wrong with what these soldiers did. They took photographs of suicide bomber's body parts. If widely enough publicized it might give the next suicide bomber second thoughts. "Do I really want to have a picture of my head under the boot of an American GI?"

    You're assuming a suicide bomber uses logic and reason eh?

    Obama: First let me say, it's Bush's fault. Now what was the question?

    The pictures at Abu Ghraib were pictures of soldiers posing with live prisoners being tortured and humiliated (AND a photo of one that they had tortured to death). This is different. Disgusting, and a sad showing of the callousness of members of our military, but inherently different.

    Your post is as dumb as the actions of those soldiers. Abu Gharib was about actions under a policy that condoned torture. This is about actions taken by soldiers under combat conditions that do not involve live opponents. Dumb actions, since they create even more animosity.

    The fact that you even try to equate this with the actions at Abu Gharib is an indiction of the lack of morality on your part.

    It's no different in the eyes of our enemies.

    They do use logic and reason, their own. They also have a very keen sense of humiliation.
