US drone strike of innocents: ‘no way this is mere incompetence on the part of military command’

A U.S. drone struck a vehicle packed with explosives in a residential area of Kabul on Sunday, preventing an imminent attack on the city’s airport, the Pentagon said. Potentially, it saved hundreds of lives. The only problem is what the people say they found after the strike was ten innocent people dead.

The Sunday strike hit a van and killed an interpreter, his wife, and small children, and a former Afghan soldier about to be married.

There are reports that a second strike killed the innocent family. Witnesses say there was one strike.

Journalist Emily Miller reports: “General McKenzie was involved in the drone strike hitting the interpreter. There is no way this is mere incompetence on the part of military command.” – American in touch with both special ops teams and the active military in Afghanistan

Some wonder if the WOKE general got the intel from the Taliban.

THE STORY

In an initial statement after the strike, U.S. Navy Capt. Bill Urban, a spokesman for the U.S. military’s Central Command, said the strike had hit its intended target and that there were no indications of civilian casualties.

But in a subsequent statement, Urban said the Pentagon was aware of reports of civilian casualties and was investigating. ”We would be deeply saddened by any potential loss of innocent life,” he said.

He said the U.S. strike “disrupted an imminent ISIS-K threat,” a reference to the Afghan affiliate of the militant Islamic State group, which claimed responsibility for Thursday’s deadly bombing on the outskirts of the Kabul airport. In the wake of that attack, the Pentagon launched an airstrike in eastern Afghanistan on Saturday that it said killed both the “facilitator” and “planner” of the bombing.

Urban said there were powerful secondary explosions from Sunday’s drone strike, which he said indicated a large amount of explosive materials inside the targeted vehicle. Those secondary explosions “may have caused additional casualties,” he said.

The interpreter’s family said there is no way they were involved with ISIS-K.

In Khwaja Burgha, members of Ahmadi’s family said there had been only one explosion and that the resulting fireball had partially burned a crimson Toyota SUV that was also in the driveway.

“We heard a loud bang, and the whole house shook,” said Abdul Khalil, the Ahmadis’ neighbor. One of the rooms in his house is adjacent to the Ahmadis’ driveway; the blast had dislodged large chunks of plaster from the wall.

It appears to be an errant strike.

The scenes reportedly don’t match what US CentCom is reporting:

If they thought this family is ISIS-K, where did they get the info? The Taliban?
