Friday, the head of US Central Command Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr. announced that the drone strike on alleged ISIS-K terrorists in Kabul on August 29th didn’t kill any terrorists. Instead, it mistakenly killed an aid worker who was loading water canisters into his car and nine of his family members, including seven children.
The attack that was previously called a “righteous strike” by Gen. Mark Milley is now described as a “tragic mistake” for which McKenzie offered “my sincere apology.”
It has to be said that this never would have happened if the pullout hadn’t been so botched and left us with an uncontrollable, chaotic situation, no forces or reliable intelligence on the ground, and an opening for terrorists to launch attacks. But I don’t want to be accused of trying to score political points off of a terrible tragedy, so I’ll just point out that this was so bad, even some of Biden’s most loyal liberal media handmaidens couldn’t stop themselves from expressing outrage.
I’ll let you know how they eventually manage to find a way to blame Trump for this.
