It was announced on Wednesday that an video posted on the internet showing United States Marines urinating on dead Taliban fighters in Afghanistan will be investigated to the fullest extent by the Pentagon.

The first notice of the video occurred late Tuesday night on YouTube right before the midnight hour. The video has a caption that indicates the Marines are members of Scout Sniper Team 4, a Marine Corps unit that has been serving on the front lines of the Afghanistan war this year.

The video is just 39 seconds long but it shows Marines wearing full combat gear while urinating on the bodies of three dead men who are bearded and who are dressed in Afghan garb. On the video, the soldiers can be heard joking and laughing, with one saying, “Have a great day, buddy.”

Desecration of corpses during wartime violates military law and can also lead to court-martial.

A Marine Corps spokesman, Capt. Gregory Wolf, said that nothing regarding the video has been confirmed (including the authenticity and the origin of it). The Captain also said that the “actions portrayed are not consistent with our core values and are not indicative of the character of the Marines in our corps.”

“This matter will be fully investigated,” Wolf said.
