Video of U.S. Marines urinating on three dead Taliban men surfaced on YouTube recently.
The four sniper soldiers were in Afghanistan.
On Friday, the Marines Corps laid out plans to investigate the incident that may be in violation of international laws.
The top Marine officer, General James Amos, appointed three-star Gen. Thomas Waldhauser to oversee the case.
Waldhauser named another officer to do an internal Marine Corps investigation, which is in addition to a criminal probe under way by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, according to Huffington Post.
Waldhauser will decide what to do as a result of the investigations.
In Afghanistan, a senior U.S. commander issued a letter to all personnel in the international coalition that is fighting the war, explicitly reminding them of the need to respect the dead.
The letter from Army Lt. Gen. Curtis M. Scaparrotti, commander of the International Security Assistance Force Joint Command, reflected their concern about fallout from the video reaching the public.
“Defiling, desecrating, mocking, photographing or filming for personal use insurgent dead constitutes a grave breach of the LOAC (laws of armed conflict), violate basic standards of human decency and can cause serious damage to relations with the Afghan government,” Scaparrotti wrote.
He ordered all commanders to remind their subordinates of their duty to comply.

Does the sun have the power to transform humankind?
In Solar (R)evolution, world-renowned German biophysicist Dieter Broers makes a compelling case, pointing to a wealth of scientific evidence that shows a remarkable correlation between increases in solar activity and advances in our creative, mental, and spiritual abilities.
We are in the midst of a dramatic rise in solar disturbances, which have the capability of disrupting the Earth’s geomagnetic field and, as a result, our global ecology. Broers, however, sees this not as an impending apocalypse but as the dawn of a new era.
Drawing on research from a variety of disciplines, he shows how erupting solar activity carries the potential to boost our brain capacity and expand our minds in ways we never imagined possible. Abilities now seen as extraordinary or supernatural—telepathy, extrasensory perception, and off-the-charts intelligence quotients—may soon become ordinary and natural and could very well help us solve the mounting global crises we are facing.
Humankind is going through an evolutionary leap, says Broers, and the process has already begun.
