The US Marine Corps said on Wednesday it is investigating a video depicting what appears to be four Marines urinating on the corpses of Taliban fighters. In a statement, the Marine Corps said it has not verified the origin or authenticity of the YouTube video. It also said the actions portrayed are not consistent with Marine values. If verified the video could create a strong backlash in the Muslim world and beyond for the disrespectful actions it portrays.
