Video Believed to Show U.S. Marines Urinating on Deceased Iraqis

The U.S. Marine Corps has launched an investigation into four men in uniform who appear to have been caught on camera urinating on the corpses of three Taliban fighters. The disturbing video surfaced on Jan. 11, 2011, and, according to U.S. Marine Corps officials, all four soldiers have been identified. Their names have not been released, but they are reportedly the 3/2 Marine battalion out of Camp Lejeune, which was stationed in Afghanistan last summer. Should the video prove legitimate, it would be a direct violation of the Geneva Convention, which calls for the dead to be "honorably interred" and graves to be "respected," in addition to the U.S. Uniform Code of Military Justice for allegedly bringing "discredit upon the armed forces."
