U.S. Troops from 82nd Airborne Division Under Investigation for Posing with Body Parts of Afghan Bombers

Here we go again, U.S. soldiers caught behaving badly in Afghanistan. According to the LA Times, “an American soldier says he released the photos to the newspaper to draw attention to the safety risk of a breakdown in leadership and discipline.”  The Army has since launched an investigation into the matter.

LA Times:  The 82nd Airborne Division soldiers arrived at the police station in Afghanistan’s Zabol province in February 2010. They inspected the body parts. Then the mission turned macabre: The paratroopers posed for photos next to Afghan police, grinning while some held — and others squatted beside — the corpse’s severed legs.
