Default U.S. Drone Strike Targeted Aid Worker Carrying Water, Not Explosives

Following the suicide bomber attack at the Kabul airport that took the lives of 13 US service members an angry President Biden took to the podium promising revenge. With remarkable speed considering CIA assets had been evacuated weeks before the Biden administration struck back at the "terrorist" .

Quote:
Independent investigations by The New York Times and The Washington Post are calling into question the U.S. military claims that its Aug. 29 drone strike in Kabul destroyed a car operated by an ISIS-K sympathizer, which allegedly contained explosives destined for the Kabul airport.

The U.S. Central Command initial statement described the strike as a "self-defense" operation that eliminated an "imminent ISIS-K threat" to the airport. "Significant secondary explosions from the vehicle indicated the presence of a substantial amount of explosive material." In a press conference Sept. 1, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley called it a "righteous strike" that correctly followed procedures.
But wait, something is wrong when the Democrat loving media questions the Biden administration.

Quote:
But the*Times*and*Post*investigations were unable to find evidence of any explosives in the car, which they say was driven by 43-year-old Zemari Ahmadi, an engineer working for the U.S. aid group Nutrition and Education International, which aims to eliminate malnutrition in Afghanistan. Family members told the*Times*that Ahmadi had applied for refugee resettlement in the United States.

Ahmadi was not the only person killed by the drone strike. Ahmadi's relatives told the*Times*that 10 members of their family were killed, including seven children.
Joe Brain Damage may be excused for the act of blind revenge as he is not in charge. But White Rage Milley ought to resign in disgrace for the blunder.

When you are tripping over yourselves to get out of Afghanistan and pulling out ground assets before their mission is complete, you will not be getting much in the way regarding accurate intelligence. My guess is that they took the word of some Taliban lackey as an excuse for Biden to look tough. Yet another miserable failure by this administration.
