The Marine Corps has appointed a three-star general to decide what, if any, disciplinary action to take against four Marine snipers who appear in a video that purports to show them urinating on dead bodies in Afghanistan.

No one has been charged in the case.

Lt. Gen. Joe Waldhauser will name another officer to lead an internal Marine Corps investigation.

That investigation will be in addition to a criminal probe already under way by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service. Waldhauser will determine how to proceed once both investigations are completed.

Waldhauser is commander of Marine Corps Forces Central Command, whose area of responsibility includes Afghanistan.
