 U.S. investigators believe they have identified and questioned at least two of the four Marines seen on video urinating on the bodies of dead Taliban fighters. 
  
Senior Marine officials with knowledge of the investigation say the four were members of a 1,000-man battalion from Camp LeJeune, ((in the southern U.S. state of )) North Carolina. The battalion recently completed a combat tour in the southern Afghan province of Helmand, where it lost seven of its members during clashes with the Taliban. The officials also say the four men appear to be part of the battalion's sniper team, based on their gear and weapons that they are carrying in the video. Top U.S. officials, including Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton have condemned the video, Panetta calling it "utterly deplorable." On Friday, the commander of the International Security Assistance Force in Afghanistan expressed his outrage over the video. General John Allen, currently traveling in the United States, said such acts must be condemned in the "strongest manner possible." He also said those responsible would be held accountable. Several officials say that if the incident is confirmed, the Marines involved could be charged with war crimes for not treating the bodies of those killed in war honorably. 



美国调查人员表示,他们确认并讯问了虐待塔利班成员尸体的四名海军陆战队成员中的至少两人。一段视频显示,4名海军陆战队员在塔利班武装分子的尸体上撒尿。了解此次调查的高级海军陆战队官员说,这4人是北卡罗来纳州有一千人的乐洁恩营的成员。这个营最近在阿富汗南部赫尔曼德省作战,在与塔利班的冲突中损失了7名队员。这些官员还说,根据视频显示陆战队员配备的武器和装备,这4名男子看来是营中狙击队的成员。美国国防部长帕内塔和国务卿克林顿等高级官员谴责视频中的事件。帕内塔称,这一事件是“极其可悲的”。星期五,驻阿富汗的国际安全援助部队指挥官对视频中的事件表示不满。目前在美国的约翰.艾伦将军说,这样的举动必须受到“最为强烈的”谴责。他还说,必须追究当事人的责任。有几名官员说,如果这一事件被证实,涉嫌此事的海军陆战队将被控犯有不尊重战争牺牲者尸体的战争罪。
