US Marine sniper unit photographed with 'Nazi SS' flag

A US Marine scout sniper unit in Afghanistan posed for a photo in front of a flag resembling the logo of the Nazi SS, the Marine Corps says.


The inspector general found there was no intent on the part of the Marines to identify themselves with the SS. An investigation found the symbol was meant to identify the Marines as scout snipers, but that it was still unacceptable, the Associated Press reported.
