Pentagon Admits To Killing Innocent Civilizans In Kabul Retaliatory Airstrike

Published

Last month, during president Biden’s chaotic Afghanistan exit, the cowardly terrorist group known as ISIS-K launched an unforgivable attack that cost the lives of 13 American soldiers and almost a hundred innocent Afghans. Such barbarism deserves retaliation and so our government instructed the military to conduct airstrikes against the dreaded criminal organization.

Unfortunately, just like the ineptly-planned withdrawal of our troops, the attack didn’t achieve any positive impact as it was believed to have targeted wrong individuals. After an almost month-long investigation by the U.S. military, it finally admitted to making the grave error that killed one man, seven children and two other adult family members.

“I directed following the report of civilian casualties from our strike and Kabul on 29 August. Having thoroughly reviewed the findings of the investigation and the supporting analysis by inter-agency partners, I am now convinced that as many as 10 civilians, including up to seven children were tragically killed in that strike,” General Mckenzie stated in a press conference last week.

“Moreover, we now assess that it is unlikely that the vehicle and those who died or associated with ISIS K, or were a direct threat to the US forces,” General Mckenzie continued.

This revelation has placed a larger black eye on our nation’s already-battered reputation and Biden and his top brass must be held accountable for this epic blunder. We understand that an operation like the Afghanistan withdrawal is full of complexities and intricacies that a little mishandling can turn into a huge catastrophe. However, the Biden administration committed a lot of mistakes that could’ve been prevented if they were more systematic and responsible.

James Jay Carafano, vice president of foreign and defense policy studies The Heritage Foundation recently slammed president Biden in his Fox News opinion piece.

“This strike reminds us of the huge problem the Biden administration now has figuring out what to shoot at. After the withdrawal, we’re more blind on the ground than we were before September 11, 2001,” Carafano wrote.

“Biden is no Obama. Even though he tries to mimic some of Obama’s policies, he is even weaker when it comes to foreign policy. As vice president, Biden famously opposed the mission to kill Osama bin Laden, fearing the blowback if it didn’t work,” Carafano continued.

“Biden added to the mess of the messy Afghanistan withdrawal by initially prohibiting the military from putting more troops in to ensure we could get more safely out,” Carafano added.
