Marine pleads guilty
to urinating on corpses

Camp LeJeune, N.C. - A Marine who pleaded guilty Wednesday to urinating on the corpses of dead Taliban fighters in Afghanistan will likely be demoted one rank under a plea agreement, although a military judge called for a much harsher sentence. Staff Sgt. Edward W. Deptola pleaded guilty to multiple charges at court-martial, including dereliction of duty for desecrating remains, posing for photographs with the corpses and failing to properly supervise junior Marines. The judge, Lt. Col Nicole Hudspeth, would have sentenced him to six months confinement, a $5,000 fine,

Comments:
I am a complete supporter of our Armed Forces. But, not of this heinous action today [this happened in July, 2011]. After the embarrassment we went through because of similar actions earlier at Abu Ghraib [and imaging it] the "lesson" should have been learned NOT to engage in this type of desecration.

I´ve seen "Zero Dark Thirty," and any "torture" shown was so minimal to anything the Al Qaeda has or would be willing to do to captured American POW´s as to be boring.

The stuff that was done....maybe not right. But I wonder if the JAG judge has every stared down the barrel of a Taliban AK-47 or RPG launcher.

Little Hooded monk - "Heinous" is far too harsh an adjective for this Marine´s action. Dumb, stupid, uncouth would be better terms for his actions. The same for the use of "desecration", which should be used for religious symbols, not Taliban corpses. Prior to becoming corpses, these Talibsn were trying to kill these Marines, either with AK-47s or the viciously indiscriminate IED that severs legs and/or removes genitals, eyes and hands.

To criminalize dumbness in a war our Commander in Chief doesn´t mention, that few in the US care or even know about, and that our Marines and soldiers realize we are about to abandon, is the real crime. And, that our military is fighting under the most restrictive rules of engagement ever imposed on US forces.

Yep, they´ve got nothing better to do than go after this guy. He´ll be glad to get out and start his private life (if he can). Thanks, Marine. If you´re killed and the Taliban piddle on what´s left of your body, we´ll be really annoyed about that, m´kay?

Lt. Col Nicole (Oh I am too often ashamed of my gender these days) Hudspeth should be shunned. If I ever have a chance to meet her, I promise I will turn my back and walk away.

We have obviously become a country of (w)ussies. If you are going to punish anyone, publish the dang fool that recorded it! Dear Al Qaida (including our Dear Leader) - I urinate in your general direction.
My father, still living and kickin´ rear, was a Marine in WWII, intimately involved in several of the ´interesting´ island battles of the Pacific. He can tell you that peeing on the dead of the enemy ain´t nothing to what the enemy does to you while you are still alive. Would Daniel Pearl care to comment?

He should not "plea" anything. He should avow, assert, shout from the rooftops that yea verily he did with full intent urinate, pee, expend bodily fluids upon an enemy (deceased) combatant. If we are not there to debase, denigrate, defile, defecate upon and defeat said enemy, then WHY for pities sake are we there bleeding upon foreign soil? He (and others) should "dare" the judges to find him guilty, thereby, showing their hypocrisy.

Sorry OP but ware is not a fun business and should be terrible. It should be so horrible that no sane being would want to engage in it. Unfortunately, the moslems are not sane; therefore, we need to make them fear deep into their very core. We need to make war so terrible for them that they would rather commit suicide. Oh, wait. They are insane. So, if you meet them on their terms, then your IQ is going south of the outside winter temperature in Alaska.

I suggest that if we had had more senior officers like Miss Lt. Col Nicole Hudspeth back during WW II, we would still be fighting Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan today.

There was a time when I was proud to be an American veteran.

Washington - The CIA’s former top lawyer disputes Senate findings that the spy agency lied about its brutal interrogations of terrorists, insisting the tactics produced useful intelligence and flatly denying that the CIA misled the former Bush administration, Congress and the American public. At the same time, John Rizzo, who left the CIA as acting general counsel in 2009, said some CIA employees or contractors were overzealous in the use of the tactics but that the CIA informed lawyers at the Justice Department of the excesses. Rizzo was responsible for helping to create the legal foundation for permitting waterboarding,

GM to seek court protection
against ignition lawsuits

General Motors Co said it would ask a U.S. court to bar lawsuits related to actions before its 2009 bankruptcy, signaling a tougher stance toward legal claims stemming from its recent recall over faulty ignition switches. GM has said it is protected from liability for claims related to incidents that occurred before it exited bankruptcy in 2009, and has taken steps to raise those issues with the court by filing motions to stay recall-related lawsuits while it asks that bankruptcy court to clarify the extent of that protection. In a filing with the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas on Tuesday, GM asked for a stay on litigation

Beijing - Chinese President Xi Jinping plans to use a purge of senior officials suspected of corruption to put his own men and reform-minded bureaucrats into key positions across the Communist Party, the government and the military, sources said. Xi hopes that removing corrupt officials and those resisting change will allow him to consolidate his grip on power and implement difficult economic, judicial and military reforms that he believes are vital to perpetuate one-party rule, said the sources, who have ties to the leadership. In the most far-reaching example of his intentions, Xi plans to promote about 200 progressive officials

According to a new study, spooning with your partner really does say something about your relationship. Researchers from the University of Hertfordshire surveyed 1,000 people and found that couples who maintained physical contact while they slept were more likely to report being happy in their relationship. An overwhelming 94% of couples who touch while sleeping said they were happy, while only 68% of couples who didn’t touch while snoozing expressed being satisfied with their relationship. Not only that, physical distance while sleeping seemed to translate into emotional distance.

Peshawar , Pakistan — The Pakistani Taliban said Wednesday that they were ending a six-week-old ceasefire but would continue peace talks with the Pakistani government. In a statement emailed to journalists, the Tehrik-e-Taliban Pakistan, as the group is formally known, accused the military of torturing prisoners and killing 50 militants during the ceasefire.

Court Deportations Drop
43 Percent in Last Five Years

New deportation cases brought by the Obama administration in the nation’s immigration courts have been declining steadily since 2009 and judges have increasingly ruled against deportations, leading to a 43 percent drop in the number of deportations through the courts in the last five years, according to Justice Department statistics released on Wednesday. (Snip) The statistics present a different picture of President Obama’s enforcement policies than the one painted by many immigrant advocates, who have assailed the president as the “deporter in chief” and accused him of rushing to reach a record of two million deportations.

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers. And the information we’ve uncovered – information that would otherwise remain under lock and key – shows that the

I live in Las Vegas. I live and breath Nevada politics. Something is very wrong. Something smells rotten in the Nevada desert. And Senator Harry Reid’s fingerprints are all over it. I am of course referring to the Bundy Ranch siege. This was a dispute between a Nevada ranching family with rights to the land in question for 140 years and the BLM (Bureayu of Land Management). The government claims they haven’t paid grazing fees for 20 years. The result was a government assault on the ranch- including snipers with assault rifles, SUV’s, helicopters, airplanes and over 200 heavily armed troops. No

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes.

Democratic Massachusetts Sen.

Out of left field, the state Republican Party, or the Brown campaign, or some blogger, would launch a rocket at me,” Warren wrote, adding, ”I was stunned by the attacks.” This reporter (blogger?) reported extensively

WASHINGTON — Former President Jimmy Carter joined fellow Nobel laureates Wednesday in opposing Keystone XL, insisting that approving the pipeline would trigger “more climate upheaval” around the globe. In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
