U.S. Troops Posed With Bodies of Suicide Bombers in Afghanistan

At this morning's Los Angeles Times, "U.S. troops posed with body parts of Afghan bombers" (at Memeorandum):
The photos have emerged at a particularly sensitive moment for U.S.-Afghan relations. In January, a video appeared on the Internet showing four U.S. Marines urinating on Afghan corpses. In February, the inadvertent burning of copies of the Koran at a U.S. base triggered riots that left 30 dead and led to the deaths of six Americans. In March, a U.S. Army sergeant went on a nighttime shooting rampage in two Afghan villages, killing 17.
And differing opinions, at Jawa Report, "Sandcrawler PSA: Don't Try Suicide Bombing," and Jihad Watch, "U.S. condemns photos of soldiers posing with body parts of Afghan jihadists."
