Afghan corpse photos: 'Reprehensible,' White House says
Politico ^ | 4/18/12 | DONOVAN SLACK

Posted on 04/18/2012 11:02:45 AM PDT by ColdOne

White House press secretary Jay Carney told reporters on Air Force One on Wednesday that President Barack Obama has been briefed on the photos and he shared Panetta’s reaction. Carney did not know if Obama had seen them.

The “conduct depicted in those photographs is reprehensible and does not in any way represent the high standards of the US military,” Carney said, according to the pool report. “And the president certainly shares in the defense secretary’s opinion that this should be investigated and those held responsible will be held accountable.”

Carney also said that White House officials are disappointed that the L.A. Times published the photographs, saying they were taken two years ago.

““And the president certainly shares in the defense secretary’s opinion that this should be investigated and those held responsible will be held accountable.”

Well, we know who is absolutely not responsible for anything in any way, shape or form.

Give’em the boys a break.
The parts are from a suicide bomb.
They deserve no more respect than the offal from a butcher shop.

The “conduct depicted in those photographs is reprehensible and does not in any way represent the high standards of the US military,” Carney said,

However, Obozo is extremely grateful for the release of these photos as it takes the light off of the scandal with the Secret Service in Columbia.

Just another notch in the headboard of Marxism where 0bama's willful dismantling of America requires the humiliation and demoralization of tradition American institutions.

Are these recent 'embarrassing events' staged by the 0bama regime? Was the Secret Service also set up for humiliation and distrust by insurgents within our own government? You betcha!

The LAT sat on the pics for two years!

Perhaps they got the WH go-ahead to drum up antiwar sentiment and have everyone demand a pullout before the election.

Obummer could then use it a positive achievement.../S

He is using the military as a whipping boy, along with Israel, Britain; etc.

The sheer arrogance of his hostility to America and America’s allies. If it were me, I wouldn’t try to piss off the military so much, especially when they are fighting America’s enemy under those horrific ROE.

No worse than stories of marines collecting gold teeth from dead japanese soldiers. The MSM looks for ways to rile up the muzzies. Must need to sell more papers.

Ahem. This is war. The aim is to kill people and break stuff. This ain’t a dance in the East Room with the president crooning with BB King. This life and death.

Leave the troops alone.

I’ll take ANY soldier/sailer/airman/marine over the Obamaloon any day.

The military is doing its job.

The loon has never done its job.

I hear they called him 'Spit & Polish Carney' when he served. Known far and wide for his high standards.

Hey, that’s what it looks like when you blow yourself up.
Same with pictures of aborted babies. They just don’t want to see the truth.

reprehensible

What is reprehensible are towel-heads who blow
themselves up and murder innocent women and children.

CARNEY (at today’s presser): “Ed....I told you YESTERDAY that there was nothing wrong with that slut....errr...uh...gasp...uh....Secretary of State Hillary Clinton drinking shots and beers and dancing with a lesbo hooker ....uh....OH....err I mean a local debutant in Columbia. BUT....BUT this thing about troops posing with a corpse 2 YEARS AGO is reprehensible and unacceptable . The president looked at the pictures and said if he had a son in the Navy, he would look just like that corpse-man.Again, we will not tolerate anyone, I repeat, anyone embarrassing this country. Whats that, Jake? ‘Does that include the picture of michelle walking off Air Force One wearing shorts and sneakers’? What’s your point, Jake? I was talking about photo’s of people embarrassing the country.”

The danger is that this material could be used by the enemy to incite violence against U.S. and Afghan service members in Afghanistan,”
...........................................................
No Hoss: The danger is that the Obama administration will use this material to destroy our military and the morale of it’s soldiers.

I don’t fear the Afghans near as much as I fear our Government.

***Give’em the boys a break.

I saw photos of several blown up Palestinian bombers in Israel, and I remember photos of dead Viet Cong from the VN war. Also saw some old photos of WWII. Dead Germans, dead Japs, dead Jews. All in TIME MAGAZINE.

Dead civil war soldiers. Dead Indians at Wounded Knee. Dead Germans in WWI. Dead outlaws.

So this is nothing new.
