Via TTN:

On Friday, the Pentagon confirmed that a recent drone strike launched with the intention to kill ISIS-K terrorists behind recent attacks in Kabul, Afghanistan was actually a tragic mistake that killed 10 civilians.

On Aug. 29, a U.S drone strike targeted a white Toyota sedan believed to be carrying explosives. However, now the Pentagon is admitting that the driver of the car, Zemari Ahmadi, was a longtime worker for a U.S. aid group, had nothing to do with ISIS.

The Hill reports:

“I am now convinced that as many as 10 civilians, including up to seven children were tragically killed in that strike,” U.S. Central Command head Gen. Frank McKenzie told reports at the Pentagon. “Moreover, we analyzed that it is unlikely that the vehicle and those who died or associated with ISIS-K or were a direct threat to US forces.”

“I offer my profound condolences to the family and friends of those who were killed. This strike was taken in the earnest belief that it would prevent an imminent threat to our forces in the evacuees at the airport, but it was a mistake. And I offer my sincere apology. As the combatant commander. I am fully responsible for the strike in this tragic outcome.”

Mistake? Oops? Americans are being treated like mushrooms: kept in the dark and fed bull droppings.

For many decades now by dim wits and rinos. Bush, Bozo, Biden are only the latest presidents to cover it all up. Been heading for the UN proposal for at least since Clinton for certain. Trump was the first president from outside the establishment so the establishment and dim wits colluded to steal an election to get rid of him. But in doing that, the whole bunch exposed themselves to the population and anyone with two brain cells got it too.

The conservatives are with Trump. We are going to flush the floaters in DC down the toilet. Rinos are targets and so are dim wits especially at the state levels..

Too bad Newson had control with the state congress to allow the fixing of rules and that infamous mail in voting and no doubt harvesting which was exposed in that load of ballots a known criminal had in his vehicle when he passed out on the way to deliver them I suppose. A policeman rounded him up and low and behold, the ballots were in his vehicle and some other items of interest.

Big fake news cover any of that? Crickets. Before 2022 this cheating venue must be blocked. And there will be another exodus from CA and Dim wit run states. Can’t fix it if they have control of the state legislatures too. We just have to focus on keeping the same voting fraud from happening in the GOP states and still cleaning out the rinos in the GOP.

Tragic accidents of this nature usually happen as a result of neglect on the part of those making the decision! It can be very difficult to mistake civilians for terrorists but it seems that is exactly what happened! Ten civilians, including seven children, were killed! Obviously, those who were planning the kill hadn’t properly checked out who was in the Toyota sedan! Had they done so, those ten civilians would still be alive!

This is one of those tragic accidents that happen as a result of neglect! Obviously, whomever was in charge of the situation didn’t follow due dilligence to ensure that they had the right place and the right time for their attack!
As a result of their negligence, ten civilians were killed!

At least we got one four=star general that will own up to having made a mistake. One is better than none.

Imagine if Trump was still President (well, technically we all know he is) and what the MSM would be saying! There would be a third or fourth or fifth impeachment! Such hypocrisy.!
