A video has surfaced online that appears to show a group of U.S. Marines urinating on several dead bodies.
The U.S. Marine Corps has reportedly launched an investigation into the video, according to TMZ.
video was posted on YouTube by someone with the user name
"semperfiLoneVoice," along with the description, "Scout sniper team 4
with 3rd battalion 2nd marines out of camp lejeune peeing on dead
talibans. i thought marines were suppose to do the right thing when no
one is watching."
"While we have not yet verified the origin or
authenticity of this video, the actions portrayed are not consistent
with our core values and are not indicative of the character of the
Marines in our Corps," Captain Kendra N. Hardesty told TMZ. "This matter
will be fully investigated and those responsible will be held
accountable for their actions."
The soldiers can be heard laughing and joking in the video, one saying, "Have a great day, buddy."
"Golden like a shower," another soldier says after he is finished urinating.
