US Govt Admits to Killing Innocent Civilians During Failed Assassination Attempt of British HackerBy Matt Agorist
“With nearly 10,000 air strikes, we’re taking out their leadership,
their oil, their training camps, their weapons,” Obama stated during his
farewell State of the Union address earlier this month. Conveniently,
in those 10,000 air strikes, he failed to include the bombings of
hospitals, weddings, tribal council meetings, and, at least, eight U.S. citizens, with no concern for due process or a constitutionally mandated fair trial.
The Obama administration is also responsible for allowing the CIA to deploy drone strikes against a Yemeni wedding and a Pakistani tribal council meeting with total impunity.
On October 3, 2015, a U.S. airstrike
killed at least 20 patients and MSF staff at a hospital in Kunduz,
Afghanistan, occupied by the group Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF), the
French charitable organization, “Doctors Without Borders.”
There is no question that the United States, in its carrying out of
drone strikes and bombing campaigns throughout the Middle East, has
killed thousands. However, the last thing the warmongers ever do is
admit to these killings.
On Friday, that changed as the US Central Command admitted that they
killed and injured multiple civilians in the ‘vicinity’ of a drone
strike meant for Junaid Hussain, on August 13, 2015.
Sadly, it’s not surprising to those who pay attention to the
atrocities carried out by the military-industrial complex, but what
makes this case unique is that not only did the US admit to killing
civilians, they also admitted to missing their target.
