In response to a shocking viral video apparently showing four Marines urinating on three dead bodies in Afghanistan, the Marine Corps issued a statement saying, "the actions portrayed are not consistent with our core values and are not indicative of the character of the Marines in our Corps.”

In the clip – which has not yet been authenticated -- the men are presumably gathered around the dead bodies, with one saying, "Golden F***ing showers."

Authorities with the U.S. military told NBC Thursday, "It should be pretty easy" to identify those in the explicit clip, and that they "will be held accountable for their actions."

The servicemen are reportedly members of a sniper team out of Camp Lejeune, North Carolina, they told the network. 

Arizona Sen. John McCain -- a POW in the Vietnam war -- told CBS Thursday the video "makes me so sad."

"There should be an investigation and these young people should be punished," the former presidential nominee said.
