What does Exum mean: “Afghans…will probably not be terribly offended by what U.S. soldiers do to the body of a suicide bomber”
Andrew Exum has this to say on the Taliban-body-parts controversy here:
“…Clearly, this incident reflects a failure on the part of whichever commissioned or noncommissioned officer had responsibility for the men in the picture. Afghans — most of whom will never see the pictures — will probably not be terribly offended by what U.S. soldiers do to the body of a suicide bomber. But Americans have a right to expect more from the men and women in uniform.”
– Really? Exum seems to be suggesting that Afghans are bereft of basic human decency here…. Or am I missing something?
