“Lord of the Flies” in Kabul? I’m not convinced.

I’ve seen the photos, and I’m going to take a contrary point of view on this. From what I’ve seen in the pictures at least, I’m not too upset. Providing security in Afghanistan, of all places, has got to be a nasty job, so I’m willing to cut some slack in how these guys get their jollies during their time off. The photos, in my view, prove absolutely nothing – they’re hardly Abu Ghraib. The other allegations alleged, perhaps. But we need to see the evidence – these photos, in my view, don’t constitute evidence of much other than some of the guys being damn hot.
