04.18.12 | Jeremy Miller

U.S. and NATO officials are condemning photos of American troops posing with bodies of suicide bombers in Afghanistan two years ago. The photos, published today by the "Los Angeles Times," show American GI's smiling next to the corpses. International Security Assistance Force Commander General John Allen issued a statement saying the incident, quote, "Represents a serious error in judgment by several soldiers who acted out of ignorance and unfamiliarity with U.S. Army values." Defense Secretary Leon Panetta also condemned the photos and expressed disappointment that the "Times" published the pictures despite the Pentagon's plea not to.
