US marines pose with Nazi flagA U.S. Marine sniper team in Afghanistan posed for a photograph in front of a flag with symbols representing Adolph Hitler's notorious SS unit, the Pentagon confirmed to The Associated Press.

The photo was eventually circulated on the Internet. According to a post on the Knight's Armament Blog, where the photo appears to have been posted in May, the Marines adopted the blue “SS” flag in reference to “scout sniper.”
