Soldiers in alleged photos with insurgent bodies condemned by White House
UPDATE: WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House says the conduct depicted in photos that purport to show U.S. troops posing with the bodies of dead insurgents in Afghanistan is "reprehensible."
White House spokesman Jay Carney says the conduct does not represent the standards of the U.S. military. Carney says the president believes the situation needs to be investigated and those responsible should be held accountable.
The photos were published in Wednesday's Los Angeles Times. The newspaper says the photos shows members of the 82nd Airborne Division posing in 2010 with Afghan police and the severed legs of a suicide bomber.
Carney says he doesn't know if the president has seen the photos.
