Washington - The White House says the conduct depicted in photos that purport to show U.S. troops posing with the bodies of dead insurgents in Afghanistan is “reprehensible.”

White House spokesman Jay Carney says the conduct does not represent the standards of the U.S. military. Carney says the president believes the situation needs to be investigated and those responsible should be held accountable.

The photos were published  in Wednesday’s Los Angeles Times. The newspaper says the photos shows members of the 82nd Airborne Division posing in 2010 with Afghan police and the severed legs of a suicide bomber.

Carney says he doesn’t know if the president has seen the photos.

Right, don't bother with defending your military because the pix may be doctored etc., just rip the military.

Well...well!! This is a suicide bomber....how else would he look? They do much worse to the American and International forces in their country and the Arab countries when they capture them! This suicide bomber did it to himself so he can go to Heaven. The Western world doesn't understand that these people consider themselves martyrs for their cause!

no, the ones who embarrass our country are the soldiers who posed for and who took these photos, not the free press who reported it. If we base our values on those of others, we are lowering ourselves to that level. We are better than this.

Hmmmm ... the Obama regime has condemned the publication of these photos, eh?

Verrrrrrrrrrrrrrry eeeeenteresting. The ENTIRE UNIVERSE remembers how the dhimmicrat party loved loved loved to see photos from Abu Ghraib, and how hey loved loved loved to attribute every single detail of every improper action taken there directly and personally to GW Bush.

Don't hold your breath waiting for the dhimmicrats to personally blame their Dear Leader for these photos.

dhimmicrats: hypocrites to the bone.

Anon...why is it then that "the FREE PRESS" that published these photos against Obama's asking not to, does not publish other photos too? Photos depicting brutal beheadings of OUR soldiers and Americans by Islamic Extremists. I have them, you have seen them, what about causing outrage and condemnation and probably uniting the country through anger (sadly). The LA Times could also publish photos of our American heroes returning without their limbs or in body bags and show the hundreds of people that line the streets standing in solidarity when a soldier's body passes in a hearse. That would UNITE us, the LA TIMES wishes to make our soldiers look like blood thirsty terrorists!

And another thing....I am sick of hearing how these SUICIDE BOMBERS "ACCIDENTALLY" blew themselves up! What the heck does that mean? They were going to blow themselves up 5 minutes later where they would cause more damage BUT they "accidentally" detonated the charge too early?????DUH.

So you are saying that just because the Taliban act like animals, that it is ok for us to also do so? I reject that.
