The Urinating Marines and Political Correctness

A video of some Marines urinating on the Corps corpses of dead Taliban “martyrs” has caused an international stir and ranking Government officials have condemned the suspect Marines. “Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the incident was ‘incompatible with American values,’ while Leon Panetta, the defence secretary, said it was ‘utterly deplorable.’”  A NATO spokesman characterized their actions as despicable and said that “those responsible will be held accountable.” (Emphasis added.)

Pondered a bit, those statements are themselves “incompatible with American values,” “utterly deplorable” and “despicable.”  Our military justice system should not become a victim of foreign policy or of political correctness.
