Officials are investigating possible additional misconduct by Marines shown urinating in video
WASHINGTON (AP) ' The Marine Corps is investigating possible additional misconduct by members of a battalion who drew worldwide attention in a video that purports to show them urinating on Afghan corpses.
A Marine spokesman on Thursday revealed the follow-up probe, which has not been publicly announced.
The spokesman, Col. Sean D. Gibson, declined to provide details of the possible additional misbehavior. He says the decision to follow up was made by Lt. Gen. Richard Mills.
Mills has reviewed results of two initial investigations resulting from disclosure in January of the video showing four Marines in full combat gear urinating on the bodies of three dead men. One investigation looked at possible criminal charges; the other looked at leadership issues in the Marines' unit. No results have been released.
