Skip to comments.Afghan corpse photos: 'Reprehensible,' White House says
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 Panettas 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 secretarys 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.

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.
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.
Now the LA Times that says that it would have been wrong to with hold those photos, because they opwn it to us to get ALL the facts out,,,
is that a DIFFERENT LA Times than the one that keeps the Obama PLO video top secret?
Obama never misses an opportunity to bad mouth his betters.
***Giveem the boys a break.
The parts are from a suicide bomb.***
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.
****All in TIME MAGAZINE.****
MY MISTAKE! It was LIFE MAGAZINE.
I do not believe they are reprehensible.
