I spotted this on the Mother Jones news website today, and words fail me.

Oh, gee. (Mother Jones - click to read)

Why is this making news now? Several Marines who were concerned about the photos contacted Mikey Weinstein (no relation), president of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, a nonprofit that watchdogs religious intolerance in the armed services. Their behavior, Weinstein told me, “eviscerates good order, morale, and discipline,” in addition to angering non-Americans and alienating survivors of the Nazis’ atrocities. He published the photos on the foundation’s website and sent a letter to Gen. John Amos, the Marine Corps commandant, demanding punishment for the Marines involved. “That flag symbolizes the vile ideology of Hitlerian fascism and sends a menacing signal to religious minorities within the United States armed forces,” Weinstein said.

Wow.
