Sydney Morning Herald: US troops burn Taliban bodies

The Sydney Morning Herald reports that "US soldiers in Afghanistan burnt the bodies of dead Taliban and taunted their opponents about the corpses, in an act deeply offensive to Muslims and in breach of the Geneva conventions," according to a news program that captured the act in footage to be aired in Australia tonight. Makes you wonder what Condi Rice means when she says she wants to follow the "Afghan Model" in Iraq.

And the wingnuts blame liberals, antiwar protesters, and the media for putting our soldiers in danger? I pray for the next US soldier who's captured in Iraq or Afghanistan... How is this different from the beheading of Nicholas Berg?
