U.S. soldiers videotaped desecrating Taliban corpses.
The bodies were positioned to face Mecca and burned -- an act of desecration that violates Islamic burial rites and the Geneva Conventions. A U.S. PsyOps specialist broadcast an inflammatory message
to the nearby town in order to incite an attack. "Attention, Taliban, you are all cowardly dogs. You allowed your fighters to be laid down facing west and burned. You are too scared to come down and retrieve their bodies. This just proves you are the lady boys we always believed you to be."
The video aired last night
in Australia, but hasn't surfaced yet in the U.S. It won't be long, though.
. "Wow, look at the blood coming out of the mouth on that one, fucking straight death metal."
Bush administration threatens veto against Geneva Convention.
After hearing about the latest torture scandal in Iraq
, Republican Armed Services Committee Senators John McCain, John W. Warner, and Lindsey Graham are seeking an amendment to a defense bill which would require the military to abide by the Geneva Convention... but the Bush administration is reportedly opposed to any such legislation, and have threatened to veto it. To make matters worse, many prominent Congressional Republicans
are also opposed to abiding by the Geneva Convention, to the point that overturning such a veto is far from assured.
