Rick Perry is right in a sense...the behavior of the Marines who urinated on dead Taliban is not worthy of the full court press for prosecution of what was no doubt an instance of bad judgement during the stress of war. The Administration in Washington is busy condemning the act for the benefit of World opinion.
Whomever took the pictures needs a talking to as well, but that's the way today's world is. The incident reflects poorly on those involved and by extension the entire country....but it's not indicative of the actions of all and is in the end one of those dehumanizing vignettes from war we don't like to see happen...but it does happen.
Rick Perry's other statement of the day has less credence...He compared himself to Moses, who he says was also a poor public speaker.....
