General named to handle Marines video probe

2012-01-14 08:00

Washington - The Marine Corps has appointed a three-star general to decide what, if any, disciplinary action to take against four Marine snipers who appear in a video that purports to show them urinating on dead bodies in Afghanistan.

No one has been charged in the case.

Lieutenant General Joe Waldhauser will name another officer to lead an internal Marine Corps investigation.

That investigation will be in addition to a criminal probe already under way by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service.

Waldhauser will determine how to proceed once both investigations are completed.

Waldhauser is commander of Marine Corps Forces Central Command, whose area of responsibility includes Afghanistan.

      The treehuggers and trolls are gonna be on here in a short while. Makes me laugh how sorry they feel for the Philistines. I work in this heathen country and I can tell you for fact that even the locals that I work alongside can't stand us..and they're the good guys.
