    Karzai condemns video of urination on corpses

    By ROBERT BURNS
    AP National Security Writer


    WASHINGTON (AP) - Afghan President Hamid Karzai on Thursday condemned a video depicting what appears to be four U.S. Marines urinating on the corpses of Taliban fighters.

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

    The Marine Corps said Wednesday it is investigating the YouTube video but has not yet verified its origin or authenticity. The case has being referred to the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, the Navy's worldwide law enforcement organization.

    The Afghan Ministry of Defense also condemned the actions in the video, which it described as "shocking."

    The NATO-led security force in Afghanistan released a statement Thursday saying, "This disrespectful act is inexplicable and not in keeping with the high moral standards we expect of coalition forces."

    Attacking Bush or Obama, depending whose watch it occurred on if it's true, is silly. As great as our Marine Corps is, as well as the other services, they're always going to have a small minority of personnel who'd do something like this. It's human nature. Some morons in our services, just like our society in general. We apologize if it's found to be true and punish those involved if we can identify them.

    That being said...

    The History of putting these things on Bush is what it is:

    abu ghraib bush - Google Search

    Barry probably won't even Speak about it or be questioned by his Media about it.

    Bush hasn't been President for years now, so his influence on what these Marines did should very little if any at best.

    No my point... IF Bush was in, it would be about him...

    He's not, Obama is...

    Media ain't makin' it about Obama.

    Predictable and just Observing it.

    :)

    peace...
