Declassified Video Shows US Military Slaughter Entire Innocent Family, Mostly Children

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

This is what we have been talking about concerning our people being involved in unconstitutional wars, mostly to benefit corporations and elitists. Sometimes war is necessary, but sending people into unwinnable wars sometimes brings out the worst in people. This is one of those incidents. Video has now been declassified by the Department of Defense that proves the US killed innocent civilians in Afghanistan, most of them children. This all came about after the DoD attempted to cover it up.

RT has the story.

The Pentagon has released surveillance videos showing a US air strike that killed 10 civilians in the Afghan capital last year, one of the final American combat missions in the country as Washington ended its two-decade war.

Published by the New York Times on Wednesday, the declassified 25-minute video shows the moment an Afghan aid worker and nine other non-combatants, including seven children, were killed in the US strike, all captured by two drones flying over Kabul during the August 29, 2021 bombing raid.

While the military initially claimed the strike targeted members of Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) who were transporting explosives – with one senior official deeming the operation “righteous” – it was later forced to backtrack and acknowledge that only civilians were killed in the attack.

Ahead of the strike, two MQ-9 Reaper drones trailed a white Toyota Corolla driven by a man later identified as Zemari Ahmadi, an aid worker with the US-based Nutrition and Education International. After following him for some time, Ahmadi’s car was struck as he pulled into the driveway of his home, seen around eight minutes into the footage. The blast engulfed the property, instantly killing Ahmadi and several children who rushed out to greet him, as well as other family members nearby.

A probe by the Air Force concluded that the operation did not violate any laws and recommended no disciplinary action. Though the investigation did find that surveillance footage showed the presence of at least one child near the site of the strike about two minutes before it was launched, the Pentagon said that would have been easy to miss in real-time.

“[In] two independent reviews that I conducted, the physical evidence of a child was apparent at the two-minute point. But it is 100 percent not obvious; you have to be looking for it,” Air Force Inspector General Sami Said told reporters in November following the inquiry, insisting the massacre was a “mistake” and not an act of “negligence.”

The declassified footage was obtained in a months-long Freedom of Information Act suit led by the Times, which was the first to uncover evidence the drone strike may not have killed any IS terrorists as the military initially claimed. The Pentagon also attempted to pin the loss of innocent life on a “secondary explosion” near Ahmadi’s home – suggesting he was indeed carrying a bomb in his car – but later said the fireball was likely caused by a propane tank, effectively abandoning any notion that he was a militant.

      That’s a shame. Oh well collateral damage happens.

        You cant really call it “collateral damage” when you hit all civilians and no military targets

      Sick. At the final judgement the truth will be shouted from the rooftops, and all evil will suffer the second death and burn forever.

      This is why suicide among troops is so high! Trained to kill but not on how to deal with the killing of innocents. Every human on earth deserves equal and fair opportunities. They should ask “What if my mom is in that house?” Would you still kill them all? I am trying to say we are all valuable and we should be very careful with use of lethal force as in being DAMN SURE, not just maybe. Somebody’s else’s mother is still precious!

      Ever heard of Dresden Germany?

    • thatdogwillbite

      No military target there but that was ok because they were nazis right? How many children died because they just happened to be walking down the Ho Chi Min trail at the wrong time? I’m not saying it’s right I’m just saying it happens.
