Karzai Condemns Taliban Abuse Tape

A disturbing video that appears to show U.S. Marines urinating on dead Taliban fighters was slammed as “inhumane” by Afghan President Hamid Karzai—but the Taliban says it won’t harm their new peace talks with the U.S. "This is not the first time we see such brutality," said a Taliban spokesman. "We know that our country is occupied." The video, posted to YouTube, shows four men in Marine uniforms urinating on corpses and making lewd jokes. The Marines have launched an investigation into the video. Two U.S. military officials told Reuters it appeared to be authentic.
