Rick Perry Defends Marines Who Urinated on Taliban Corpses

Republican presidential hopeful Rick Perry has accused the Obama administration of "over-the-top rhetoric" and "disdain for the military" in its condemnation of a video that purportedly shows four Marines urinating on corpses in Afghanistan.

Perry's comments put him at odds with Senator John McCain, the top Republican on the Senate Armed Services Committee, who said the images could damage the war effort.
