More Marines Charged Over Corpse Urination Video

Source: Associated Press

CAMP LEJEUNE, N.C. February 8, 2013 (AP)
Two more Marines face criminal charges over a 2011 YouTube video showing members of a sniper platoon urinating on the corpses of Taliban fighters in Afghanistan.

The Marine Corps announced Friday that Sgt. Robert W. Richards faces charges including dereliction of duty and violating orders. Military prosecutors say he filmed himself and others urinating on the corpses.

Capt. James V. Clement faces charges that include conduct unbecoming an officer and gentleman for failing to properly supervise junior Marines and making false statements to investigators.

3. Precisely how did urinating on a corpse assist in pursuing the American objective?

5. I wonder if there'd be a case if no video existed, but rumors/gossip floated around the troop.

7. Sadly no. Remember those pictures President Obama refused to release to general public?

I wonder if anyone would ever charged with committing crimes based on that evidence.
Same as CIA torturers will never be charged because CIA destroyed the evidence (and President Obama said he will have their backs, so nothing to worry about).

I do hope there will be one brave soul who will leak those pictures on Internet.
