Received international fame and extreme criticism after a video, depicting Motari smiling, joking and throwing a dog pup off an Iraqi desert cliff, became publicly acessible on the Internet.
The video has since been removed from YouTube, but can be found on some video portals.
Upon having been identified by some Internet users, David Motari's bebo.com space has been filled with hate messages. The US Pentagon is currently investigating the case and Motari's identity.
Several online petitions are about this case.
