Defense Secretary Leon Panetta called on American soldiers to remember that when serving abroad they are representing the United States and that incidents involving the desecration of enemy corpses shows "a lack of professionalism" among American forces.
Speaking to troops at Fort Benning, Ga., Panetta said that the high profile cases involving servicemembers urinating on Afghan corpses and posing for pictures with body parts "show a lack of judgment, a lack of professionalism, and a lack of leadership,"

Right, the bodies should have been brought back to
Washington DC so Michele could urinate on them.
That ain’t rain, it’s wookie piss!
We need to go to “war” with the Taliban. We need to make it so hard on them that they ask for “peace terms”. Right now it looks like we are asking them for “peace terms” because we are trying to make them like us. This is not how you win a war... I have read Petreus and Mattis new/revised COIN manual and while I agree with much of what they say there is an underlying assumption that our foes have or share our values. Not so, these guys are not tired of war and see the road to victory ahead of them. Now is the time to destroy their morale by doubling down on the “surge” concept and loosening the rules of engagement. Start countering every attack with a response the is over whelming to the point that they become so afraid they ask for relief... short of such a response we need to get the hell out! and let them eat each other. They will never be a western nation-state in our lifetimes but they can sure be defeated...
Lyin’ Pendejo needs to look a little closer to home if wants to find true “unprofessionalism.”
Unfortunately, our national command authority hasn't the political will or resolve to fight this war the way it needs to be fought and our servicemembers are paying the price with their blood.
Troops only follow the example from the top.
You misunderstand. Think. Who is the head of the fish? Who do the Secret Service take their direction from? WHO DO THE MILITARY TAKE THEIR LEAD FROM? WHO IS HIS HEAD MAN OVER THE MILITARY?
Also, why does the POTUS always take so many separate flights from the First Lady? Could it be the breakdown among the Secret Service comes from watching Obama us Air Force One to hide his stream of DemboSluts on his personal Playboy jet.uhhhm, Air Force One?
You misspelled Lazamataz.
Hey Leon, have you ever worn a uniform and carried a weapon in a war zone? If not STFU. Just be glad you didn't see the journals my father brought home from WWII. They would make the current war look like a cake walk.
Whoops; thanks for the correction!
