The Defense Department released today the findings of a investigation into the deadly U.S. airstrike on a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, that left 42 dead—including 30 civilians—this past October. The investigation concluded that the bombing was the result of the “fog of war.”
Immediately following a deadly U.S. airstrike on a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan’s national security advisor told a European diplomat, “We are without doubt, 100 percent convinced the place was occupied by Taliban,” the Associated Press reports. There is still no evidence to support this claim.
American special operations analysts were fully aware that the Afghan site bombed on Oct 3 was a hospital operated by Doctors Without Borders, according to a new report from The Associated Press. Those analysts reportedly knew about the hospital because they believed it was being used by a Pakistani to coordinate Taliban operations.
