U.S. DRONE STRIKE KILLS INNOCENT AFGHAN FAMILY
Not so fast: There are reports that the strike actually killed nine innocent Afghans, including children and our allies. The reports are corroborated by disturbing photos and videos being shared online. A local reporter identified those killed as:
1 U.S. interpreter
1 Afghan army officer
1 civilian shopkeeper
U.S. Central Command (CENTCOM) issued a statement, saying: “It is unclear what may have happened, and we are investigating further. We would be deeply saddened by any potential loss of innocent life.”
Back up: In its initial announcement, CENTCOM said “we are confident we successfully hit the target” but did caveat that the blast set off “significant secondary explosions.”
…So either they were being sincere, or they knew from day one that they took on casualties and didn’t want to inform the public. Unfortunately, I don’t have confidence in the Biden administration to conduct any foreign policy that doesn’t result in the loss of innocent lives.
One thing I do know for sure: If this had happened under Trump, the liberal media would be calling him a callous warmonger. But since this is Biden’s mess, it barely registers on CNN.
