An independent Pentagon review of a drone strike that killed 10 Afghan civilians, including 7 children, during the final days of the U.S. military’s presence in Afghanistan recommends that no disciplinary action be taken. The review concludes that the incident was not caused by misconduct or negligence.
“The review, done by the Air Force Lt. Gen. Sami Said, found there were breakdowns in communication and in the process of identifying and confirming the target of the bombing,” the Associated Press reported. “But, Said concluded that the mistaken strike happened despite prudent measures to prevent civilian deaths.”
Said reportedly indicated that the drone strike had to be considered during the context of the events that had happened, which included an ISIS terror attack that had killed U.S. soldiers and scores of Afghan nationals at the airport in Kabul.
