Film shows US soldiers burning Taliban corpses

Why are our tax dollars paying for this? This is a complete slap in the face of Islam, or at least how Afganistan tradition of Islam,
the dead are buried with their heads pointing north, their feet south, and only their faces turned to Mecca in the west. Nor is cremation a Muslim custom; bodies are normally washed, wrapped in white cloth and buried within 24 hours of death.
Our Government is ignoring the Geneva Conventions and the basic principles of international humanitarian law.
