This just in: Apologies to follow - UPDATED

Wait for it. Just caught this news on VOANews, and am now waiting for the 'apology tour' to speed up. Wait for BHO, and everybody else to go before the cameras to apologise. In 3....2...1

Photos Allegedly Show US Soldiers Posing with Insurgent Remains

The photos from 2010 and obtained by the Los Angeles Times appear to show members of the United States army posing with the bodies of insurgents who killed themselves in suicide attacks. The Times says it will publish the photographs on its website Wednesday.

In a statement issued before the photos were released, the commander of the International Security Assistance Force, U.S. General John Allen, called the actions "entirely inconsistent" with ISAF and U.S. Army policies. He also said the actions "undermine the daily sacrifices of thousands of ISAF troops" and promised a thorough investigation.

The U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan also condemned the photos.

In a statement, Ryan Crocker called the actions in the photographs "morally repugnant," saying they dishonor the sacrifices of hundreds of thousands of American soldiers and civilians in Afghanistan.

NObody would deny such behaviour is 'unacceptable,' but as usual, the msm will give wall to wall coverage of the politicians and Military leadership falling over themselves to apologise for the behaviour of a few, whilst ignoring the work of the many.

Wait for it, or NOT!


As predicted, but taking longer than I anticipated, the apologies and expressions of 'repugnance' are issued. The LA Times has this, and the BBC has this.
