U.S. Central Command head Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr. announced on Friday that after a thorough investigation of a U.S. drone strike on Aug. 29 in Kabul, Afghanistan, they have determined 10 civilians had been killed, including up to seven children. He added it was unlikely the vehicle and those who died were associated with ISIS-K.

“It was a mistake and I offer my sincere apologies,” McKenzie said during a Pentagon briefing. “The strike was a tragic mistake.”

McKenzie went on to explain surveillance that had been done and it was his assessment leaders on the ground “had achieved reasonable certainty at the time of the strike to designate the vehicle as an imminent threat to U.S. forces at the airport.” He also said his assessment was the strike team was convinced at the time of the strike that the area was clear of civilians.

    That’s what happens when college tuition is promised after joining the army. So much technology and so little critical thinking!

  2. Unknown User on October 17, 2021 at 8:38 am

    They should drop a bomb on this guys house, and say “oops it was a mistake”

  3. Kendron 1959 on October 17, 2021 at 8:39 am

    At least they should be able to locate the WMD’s they left behind

    war is an evil act but we can’t live without it because we live with demons ✔️

    No matter how much ur trying to explain wont bring the innocent back. And im sure this wont be the last "mistake". And i dont even believe ur explanation, simoly because the dept of defense wont allow classified files be revealed by anyone unless authorised. And i dont believe you have this authority to tell this in such details.

  6. Debojyoti Debroy on October 17, 2021 at 8:44 am

    Dont they feel ashamed ?

  7. Stupid American on October 17, 2021 at 8:45 am

    why don’t you go the Kabul to talk to the remaining of that family, and let them know how sorry you were…. You are F*cked

  8. the muppet on October 17, 2021 at 8:48 am

    guess this is what happens when you put someone on the minimum wage and food stamps in charge of a drone.

    You will answer to our Creator for this War crime and you will pay a heavy price.

    Show the predator video if there was only one person there.

  12. Haru Krentz on October 17, 2021 at 8:57 am

    And thats it?

  13. Brian Clark on October 17, 2021 at 9:01 am

    My heart is truly broken, Are we a nation that allows murder of children in the name of political expedience and what are we to make of Sorry, we killed you kids, see you tomorrow folks? The President is normally the one who orders these type of strikes, don’t hold your breath waiting for a apology from Biden, What a sad joke we are, God help us

  14. Patrick Burger on October 17, 2021 at 9:01 am

    That’s why the word atrocity haf to be invented to describe human activities.

  15. danielchristman01 on October 17, 2021 at 9:02 am

    Send them all over to Afghanistan to face their fates. Imagine if the terrorist who organized 9/11 came on TV and apologized. Would we just accept it and move on?

  16. Dzung Dang on October 17, 2021 at 9:02 am

    You are always mistaken

  17. Brian Clark on October 17, 2021 at 9:03 am

    This should show everyone what elites think of us, Anyone of us would loose our job and be sent packing, I bet this guy does not even get a bad review put in his file

    For those who do not know "An ex gratia payment is made to an individual by an organization, government, or insurer for damages or claims, but it does not require the admittance of liability by the party making the payment!"

    Your high ups are trying to start a WAR !

  20. Abdul Khaliq on October 17, 2021 at 9:09 am

    America immersed in innocents blood, let u have bath in it until u exist

  21. Ian Howes on October 17, 2021 at 9:10 am

    And the US wondeers why they are so hated in the rest of the world – forcing their ideology on tribal countries where democracy will never work.

  22. Chris Mas on October 17, 2021 at 9:11 am

    If Trump did this the leftist media would be nonstop calling for impeachment and Democrat congress would do it. No one is above the law, right. This was murder, not 1 terrorist killed or even there.

    "Now go, attack the Amalekites and totally destroy all that belongs to them. Do not spare them; put to death men and women, children and infants, cattle and sheep, camels and donkeys.”

    Everything you people do is a friggin mistake how bout for once show us something you didn’t mess up

  25. Conor Colangelo on October 17, 2021 at 9:12 am

    All by design

  26. Jawad Sarwar on October 17, 2021 at 9:12 am

    World can take your war crimes as mistakes 👏👏👏

  27. Dzung Dang on October 17, 2021 at 9:14 am

    You are always mistaken

  28. Seksan Khomsan on October 17, 2021 at 9:14 am

    Biden: come on man it just yesterday!

  29. Lord Naruto on October 17, 2021 at 9:14 am

    Give Biden a Nobel prize just like Obama, because he did the same before. History is just repeating.

  30. Patrick Burger on October 17, 2021 at 9:15 am

    Minute 1.00: he could have shrugged

  31. Max DC on October 17, 2021 at 9:15 am

    I’m surprised that people were shocked that US committed this horror. This incident could possibly be where the lowest number of innocent lives were lost. Think of how many civilian lives were lost when more powerful bombs were used by the US. Remember nuclear bombs and mother of all bombs unleashed by the US? Many people had automatically turned a blind eye to the many heinous crimes of the US over the years if not decades which baffled me when those people unabashedly claimed to support human rights.

  32. butter_man on October 17, 2021 at 9:15 am

    disband the US military until they can remember how to do their jobs properly

  33. Crus Harold on October 17, 2021 at 9:16 am

    US President Biden just keep f**king things up. Americans, great job in voting this POS.

  34. Robert Matias on October 17, 2021 at 9:18 am

    Where’s uncle Joe. Didn’t he say that "I will not forget. We will hunt you down and went golfing right after?

  35. Xiaoyu Gao on October 17, 2021 at 9:18 am

    8hrs to kill 10 people, and it wasn’t rushed?

  36. Kendron 1959 on October 17, 2021 at 9:19 am

    Now for the red flag event so we can forget what happened and jump on the war wagon

  37. Meu Deus é Fiel on October 17, 2021 at 9:20 am

    Kenneth F. McKenzie and his associates must give account to Jesus on the day of judgement for all their actions. God will give them what they deserve.

  38. Karim Mizdawy on October 17, 2021 at 9:20 am

    war crime

  39. SLG on October 17, 2021 at 9:25 am

    They finally admitted it!! I saw this reported as such a day after on Epoch times! The MSM truly is a tool of the evil ones.

  40. mayhem1974 on October 17, 2021 at 9:25 am

    The MSM cried more and was more outraged when Solomani the terrorist general was droned.

  41. Yee Kai Tang on October 17, 2021 at 9:25 am

  43. Haru Krentz on October 17, 2021 at 9:29 am

    I hope the cn*ts who controlled that drone know they are child killers now. Hope this fact will haunt them for the rest of their lives.

  44. Stupid American on October 17, 2021 at 9:29 am

    Biden: please do not blame me, I was sleeping at the time of the f*ck-up

  45. Peter Guindo on October 17, 2021 at 9:30 am

  46. UNKNOWN ANIME on October 17, 2021 at 9:32 am

    America is the cause of many wars and problems around the world including in their own country! SMH

  47. ahmad choudry on October 17, 2021 at 9:33 am

    US and his partners are killer of humanity

  48. The Post on October 17, 2021 at 9:34 am

    Forget ISIS and the Taliban, the US is the world’s largest terror organization.

  49. Jonathan Gullett on October 17, 2021 at 9:36 am

    Let’s get access to the SIGINT

  50. B Ledbetter on October 17, 2021 at 9:37 am

    And Milley totally lied about there being secondary explosions. There is no alternative to this. And had the NY Times no investigated and reported this story, the Pentagon would never have admitted anything. What a mockery our senior military leadership has become! Milley must go!!!
