White House Press Secretary Jay Carney responded on Wednesday to the photos the LA Times published of U.S. soldiers posing with dead Afghans. "We're disappointed" they were published, Carney said. He said President Obama has been briefed on the photographs, but he didn't know if Obama has seen them yet.
According to the pool report, Carney echoed the Pentagon, saying "the conduct depicted in those photographs is reprehensible and does not in any way represent the high standards of the US military. And the president certainly shares in the defense secretary's opinion that this should be investigated and those held responsible will be held accountable."
