A clip of what appear to be US Marine snipers in full combat gear urinating on three dead Afghan men has found its way from the battlefield to YouTube.

CNN has examined the story and, without reaching a conclusion, quotes a "senior Marine Corps official" speculating on the uniforms and equipment of the men, implying the video is genuine. If true, it is just another harrowing example of the culture of inhumanity at the heart of the "war on terror".
