The Los Angeles Times is in possession of photos showing U.S. troops gleefully posing with severed body parts belonging to a suicide bomber. One photo depicts soldiers holding a severed hand with the middle finger propped up.
The U.S. military is now worried that the photos could spark another wave of violence against U.S. troops in the same way that the Koran burning incident did, the desecration of Taliban fighters did, and the actions of a U.S. kill squad did.
Each month – a new story comes out of atrocity in our war in Afghanistan. This is a consequence of our nation’s longest war in history – and the toll that multiple deployments are having on the psychological well-being of our troops. Time to end the war and come home.
