“We are deeply concerned about the video”, if it is real it is “an outrageous and unacceptable behavior for a member of the armed forces,” said Pentagon spokesman Cpt. John Kirby. “The actions shown are not consistent with our core values (…) This matter will be thoroughly investigated,” said U.S. Marine Corps.
If the veracity of the video is confirmed, the scandal would be another one in the long list of events that has affected the image of the U.S. military.
