Soldiers Pose With Dead Afghans
 
I wonder how the White House was able to keep this from the news for the past 3 to 4 months. This makes the pictures from Abu Ghraib look like nothing.

it has been in the news...i'ts just that now charges are set and court proceedings have started.

What is disgusting is the fact that non of these guys will get the death penalty.

If its been in the news then it was not very much coverage because I have not heard anything on this. How does Abu Ghraib capture headlines for months because of some hazing but this has very little coverage?

Considering Tunisia, Egypt, the Arizona shooting, Libya, and now Japan have been commanding all the headlines...

This is downright awful. As much as I appreciate our armed forces, a lot of these grunts on the ground aren't the sharpest tools in the box.

From your article:

NATO, under the leadership of the US Army, has been preparing for possible publication of the photos for close to 100 days. In dozens of high-level talks with their Afghan partners, military leaders have sought to pursue the same strategy used by the US diplomatic corps in the case of the sensitive diplomatic cables released late last year by WikiLeaks. They warned those most directly affected and made preparations for the photos' appearance in the public sphere. This "strategic communication" was aimed at preventing a major public backlash.

But this happened 3 to 4 months back.

Just because you aren't aware of the news it doesn't mean it isn't in the news. I would suggest you find alternate news outlets.

Well I watch the local news and the 3 big national ones, MSNBC, CNN, and Fox. I don't watch the news every night so if it was on one night I could have missed it in the news. Gitmo was in the news for months on months and there was no way to miss that on the news. Here we have up to 4,000 photo's of dead people and today is the first time I have heard about this happening.

So how can this be made to be Bush's and Rumsfeld's fault like Abu Ghraib?
