Biden Admin Says Drone Strike That Killed 10 Was A “Mistake”

Just a mistake, y’all!

Pentagon Admits Killing as Many as 10 Civilians, Including Up to Seven Children in Kabul Drone Strike

Joe Biden Ice Cream AfghanistanDefense Secretary Lloyd Austin admitted the United States military may have killed up to 10 civilians, including up to seven children, in a drone strike in Kabul on August 29 that was intended to kill an Islamic State-Khorasan attacker.

Austin said in a statement Friday:

The investigation concluded that the strike — conducted to prevent what was believed to be an imminent threat to Hamid Karzai International Airport — resulted in the deaths of as many as 10 people, including up to seven children.

On behalf of the men and women of the Department of Defense, I offer my deepest condolences to surviving family members of those who were killed, including Mr. Ahmadi, and to the staff of Nutrition and Education International, Mr. Ahmadi’s employer.

We now know that there was no connection between Mr. Ahmadi and ISIS-Khorasan, that his activities on that day were completely harmless and not at all related to the imminent threat we believed we faced, and that Mr. Ahmadi was just as innocent a victim as were the others tragically killed.

We apologize, and we will endeavor to learn from this horrible mistake.

Just a mistake. Who’s going to pay for that mistake? Remember Biden right after the strike?

(Rolling Stone) President Biden warned ISIS-K members that the United States will continue to retaliate for a bombing near Kabul airport on Thursday that killed a number of people, including 13 U.S. troops. He also warned that military commanders believe another attack is “highly likely” in the next “24-36 hours.”

“This strike was not the last,” the president said in a statement Saturday afternoon, renewing a vow he made in a speech Thursday. “We will continue to hunt down any person involved in that heinous attack and make them pay.”

He’s the one that ordered it. He’s the Commander in Chief, ultimately responsible.

According to Army Maj. Gen. William “Hank” Taylor, who spoke at a Pentagon press conference on Saturday, one of the Islamic State members killed by the drone strike was known as a “planner,” while another was a “facilitator.” Another person was wounded, Taylor said, but he refused to identify any of the targets or say whether they were directly connected to the Kabul attack. When reporters asked for more details, Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby said, “They were ISIS-K planners and facilitators and that’s enough reason there alone.”

They were pretty darned sure then, eh?

Liberal media hammers Biden admin over botched Afghan drone strike: ‘This is absolutely horrifying’

The Biden administration renewed unprecedented backlash from members of the liberal media over its botched drone strike meant to target ISIS-K terrorists but killed Aghan civilians instead.

CNN anchor Jake Tapper kicked off his show Friday by calling out the Pentagon’s “massive and deadly mistake.”

“This is a total about-face from the Pentagon’s initial denial they got anything wrong days after the attack,” Tapper told his viewers.

Except, none of them are actually bashing Biden (who’s on vacation again, and there’s still no statement from the White House). The Pentagon, sure, but, none are actually calling for anyone to be fired.

That’s just a smattering. Even some of the friendly overseas media is Blaming the Pentagon and calling it a “mistake.” It sure didn’t seem like a mistake when the Pentagon and Biden were announcing it, eh? Now, think back to when the Trump admin drone struck (striked?) General Soleimani, and the furor aimed right at Trump. They were calling it illegal, and some were even saying Trump should be impeached. Some called it a war crime. But, hitting 10, including 7 kids, in what was a massive mistake, something that wasn’t even close, and certainly not getting any ISIS-K members? Just a mistake.

    Obama did the same thing for 8 years. He was the drone strike King of the world. He was drone striking everything that moved with a sheet on their heads in the middle east. It was so bad they ran out of missiles for awhile.

    Biden learned. Drone strike. SOMETHING….Anything. Hell I don’t care, just make them stupid mericans think we is doin sumpin.

    538 has biden 45.7 approve and 48.8 disapprove and this is a collection of lots of polls spread out over time.

    Current polling. NEWSWEEK Biden’s Approval Rating Plummets Below Most Recent Presidents on Day 240, Polling Shows

    Boston Herald
    Biden keeps sinking in the latest presidential polls
    Joe Dwinell 11 hrs ago Disapproval is 43 percent according to Rassmussen and less you say buh, but Rassmussen is a GOP pollster.

    That’s slightly worse than a Reuters/Ipsos poll that pegged the president at 44% approval rating.

    This time around everyone understands lying just got the Democrats in a huge mess with state after state redoing their election laws. So now polling has returned to some semblance of normal instead of having Trump losing Wisconsin by 15 points and losing Florida by 5 points and even losing Texas by 3 points….etc…etc….etc.

    Its a whole host of things. People believe the Ukraine thing. People by 86 percent are opposed to China and there is the China thing for Hunter biden and Joe Biden. People know Biden is working on 3 cylinders. Afghanistan was a horrendous mess. The border is a horrendous mess. Letting in 100,000’s of thousands of illegals with COVID as your covid runs out of control even among the Vaccinated.

    25-30 percent of those getting infected have had the Vaccine now….yet the left continues to CLOWARD AND PIVEN THE USA INTO BANKRUPTCY.

    That is why ELWOOD screams NO when you mention any thing that might help fight the Corona Virus. Ulterior motives of destroying the USA CAPITALIST ECONOMY in favor of SOCIALIZED LUNACY.

    So only Presidents Obama and Biden authorized drone strikes? More on that later. Read on!!

    And thanks to the New York Times for investigating this and finding the truth. Times Investigation: In U.S. Drone Strike, Evidence Suggests No ISIS Bomb

    Once again, this exposes our flawed and deadly “drone programs”.

    It’s encouraging that the American right-wing is at least pretending to be concerned that innocent civilians have been killed by the US military. It’s a start, but we know it’s just political gamesmanship on the right, as always.

    The American Conservative wrote:

    Through the end of 2019, there had already been 148 U.S. strikes launched in Somalia since Trump took office. In just the first half of 2020, there have been as many U.S. drone strikes in Somalia (40) as there were between 2007 and 2016. In less than three and a half years, Trump has more than quadrupled the number of attacks in Somalia ordered by his last two predecessors. … Some of these strikes have been on civilian targets, killing and maiming innocent people in their homes or their vehicles as they went about their business.

    How big a threat are Somalis to America? But let’s be honest, to right-wingers… these are “others”, not white (actually Somalis are caucasian and Semitic), almost certainly Muslims, who right-wingers think should all be killed anyway. Now, you cry out to hold President Biden “responsible” for killing Muslims, whom you want dead, whom you claim America is at war with!! Representative Omar (D-MN) was born in Somalia.

    At least the Biden administration admitted to their foul deed. Would tRump, LOL?

      Once again the fuked-up mind of a Nazi spews it’s anti-American, anti White racism in defense of communists and theocrats intent on murdering Americans. Well done as usual Elwood.

      “How big a threat are Somalis to America? But let’s be honest, to right-wingers… these are “others”, not white (actually Somalis are caucasian and Semitic), almost certainly Muslims, who right-wingers think should all be killed anyway.”

      If you’re going to tell us “right-wingers” what we think at least get it right and don’t give a radical ;left-wingers view. It doesn’t matter how big or small the threat is to America from Somalis they shouldn’t be here period. They bring nothing positive to our country. No culture, no science, no technology, nothing of use. Their own country is a shithole because it’s FULL OF SOMSALIS, so why transfer the shit here? As far as being moooslems goes it is THEY who believe in killing US you fuking moron, Read their damn book and stop speaking out of ignorance.

      “Now, you cry out to hold President Biden “responsible” for killing Muslims, whom you want dead, whom you claim America is at war with!! Representative Omar (D-MN) was born in Somalia.”

      We’re not trying to hold murderin’ joe to anything, he DID murder innocent moooslem children or do you deny it? Omar (Fascist-MN) is the PRECISE reason why these animals should not be allowed in here. She lied to get in and committed incest by marrying her brother to do it. You use this kunt as you shining example of a Somali? Really? Omar should be tossed out of America on her worthless commie ass. And according to moooslem law, stoned to death. Nice religion you praise there Elwood, I hear they’re already throwing fags off roof tops in Kabul, cutting the clits off 6 year old girls and selling Christians into slavery. Yeah, Somalis are just what America needs you moron.

      “At least the Biden administration admitted to their foul deed. Would tRump, LOL?”

      LOL asshole, Trump didn’t need to because he, unlike the murdering thug and child rapist biden DIDN’T MURDER CHILDREN to get his cowardly loss off the front page. You won’t even admit the guy is wrong WHEN EVERYONE ON EARTH KNOWS IT!!!! That’s how fukin’ brainwashed you are you pathetic pussy.

      Why do you hate America so much after all we’ve done for you?

        Like Teach, you are an asshole, and a white nationalist – Blood and Soil!. Thug tRump authorized drone strikes killing many civilians, you asshole. tRump has been credibly accused (with witnesses) of raping a 13 year old girl at Epstein’s Manhattan mansion, you asshole. But money buys a lot of silence. tRump murdered Muslims for fun and to give old men like you a boner, you asshole.

        10 Afghans (including 7 children) were killed by mistake. Of course that’s wrong, you asshole.

        • Kye says:

          Bullshit, asshole. You know as well as I do that if there was credible evidence and witnesses to such a thing by Trump (of all people) the leftist media would have plastered that on every front page and on every fake news site in the first world. They made up shit to try and get Trump so if they actually had something it would have been all over the place.

          Your ignorance and total brain washing is monumental. You never really consider how stupid a suggestion like that sounds to thinking people, do you? You believe everybody only reads and watches your propaganda sites and has no other sources of information.

          I’ll bet you haven’t seen this on your fake news sites!!!!! They hide shit like this from you low information retards.

    • est1950 says:

      Hey Elwood do you think Trump was ordering those attacks.

      Hell even after he left office they were laughing at him saying they lied to him about troop strengths etc. in the Middle East. I surmise that those attacks are correct.

      As to admitting to the dead I suspect you have to ask GENERAL MILLEY SINCE HE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR ALL OF THE ATTACKS YOU ARE MENTIONING.

      Yet you defend the butcher of Arlington because he is a leftist.

      Sad for you. As for Me. I have been pounding the drum to get out of the middle east since 2004.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Like you, I opposed the invasions of Iraq and Afghanistan, and tried to ignore the continuous mayhem in the middle east.

        Did Donald (The Buck Stops Over There) tRump order the attacks in Somalia? He was, after all, the President of the United States. Are you implying that the military and CIA were operating independently? Could be. He certainly didn’t halt the drone killings.

        Why did tRump nominate a “leftist” to chair the Joint Chiefs (Dec 2018)? And why did EVERY Republican Senator vote to confirm General Milley (confirmed 89-1; Jul 2019). Only liberal Senator Dem Jeff Merkley (D-OR) voted “nay”.

        So you favored tRump/Milley’s drone attacks until noon Eastern time, Jan 20, 2021? Got it. Sad for you.

        • Kye says:

          “Are you implying that the military and CIA were operating independently?”

          Are you implying they weren’t? After all we’ve discovered about deep state and military operations being hidden from Trump and traitors like yourself who think it’s okay for a military junta to operate as long as they agree with you. We knew that was the case at least in 2018, maybe earlier. When you agree with the unelected military running foreign policy you agree with a military junta. Our military is supposed to be controlled by the executive whether you like him or not.

          Do you feel comfortable with this senile demented jackass running our military today? You see what he’s done with Afghanistan and our international reputation in just 8 months. Should the top brass tell the Taliban they’ll give them notice if baby sniffer decides to attack? Would you be for that or just when Trump (who never did anything close to this) in president?

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            We are much more comfortable with President Biden as Commander-in-Chief than the sociopath Trump. Much.

          • drowningpuppies says:

    Are you saying that the military intended to kill 10 innocent civilians (including 7 children), that is, it WASN’T a mistake? How would killing 10 civilians (including 7 children) help the administration?

    Do you accept that the military believed they were killing a terrorist with a car of explosives?

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        Good point. If you intend to kill someone but kill the wrong person, is it still murder?

        If a soldier intends to kill an enemy but hits a bystander, is it murder?

        Donald Trump is a child rapist and child murderer. Prove me wrong.

        Do you see what’s wrong with that construct?

        • Kye says:

          No, but I see what’s wrong with you. You have no ability to keep on topic nor to admit when you or those you worship are wrong.

          A senile, hateful fascist president intends Afghans to prove he’s tough after fleeing the country like a coward. His intent is to get his failed policy off the front pages. Using the same “intelligence” sources that told him to abandon the military air base and hold the Kabul commercial and indefensible air base he authorizes a drone attack to kill “ISIS-K” terrorists which exist in the same dull brains in which millions of “White supremacists” exist. The result is the premeditated murder of 10 non-combatants 7 of which were children.

          Well done Mr. Fake President.

    You don’t remember all the accusations against tRump regarding his sexual abuse of women?

    This from the lawsuits against tRump and Epstein…

    A federal lawsuit filed in New York accuses Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump of repeatedly raping a 13-year-old girl more than 20 years ago, at several Upper East Side parties hosted by convicted sex offender and notorious billionaire investor Jeffrey Epstein.

    The suit, first reported by the Real Deal, accuses Trump and Epstein of luring the anonymous plaintiff and other young women to four parties at Epstein’s so-called Wexner Mansion at 9 East 71st Street. Epstein allegedly lured the plaintiff, identified in the suit only as Jane Doe, with promises of a modeling career and cash.

    Another anonymous woman, identified in additional testimony as Tiffany Doe, corroborates Jane’s allegations, testifying that she met Epstein at Port Authority, where he hired her to recruit other young girls for his parties. Trump had known Epstein for seven years in 1994 when he attended the parties at Wexner, according to the suit. He also allegedly knew that the plaintiff was 13 years old.

    Jane Doe filed a similar suit in California in April, under the name Katie Johnson, also accusing Trump and Epstein of rape. That suit was dismissed on the grounds of improper paperwork — the address affiliated with her name was found to be abandoned. Today’s suit confirms that the plaintiffs are one and the same.

    and

    I traveled by bus to New York City in June 1994 in the hope of starting a modeling career. I went to several modeling agencies but was told that I needed to put together a modeling portfolio before I would be considered. I then went to the Port Authority in New York City to start to make my way back home. There I met a woman who introduced herself to me as Tiffany. She told me about the parties and said that, if I would join her at the parties, I would be introduced to people who could get me into the modeling profession. Tiffany also told me I would be paid for attending.

    The parties were held at a New York City residence that was being used by Defendant Jeffrey Epstein. Each of the parties had other minor females and a number of guests of Mr. Epstein, including Defendant Donald Trump at four of the parties I attended. I understood that both Mr. Trump and Mr. Epstein knew I was 13 years old.

    Defendant Trump had sexual contact with me at four different parties in the summer of 1994. On the fourth and final sexual encounter with Defendant Trump, Defendant Trump tied me to a bed, exposed himself to me, and then proceeded to forcibly rape me. During the course of this savage sexual attack, I loudly pleaded with Defendant Trump to stop but he did not. Defendant Trump responded to my pleas by violently striking me in the face with his open hand and screaming that he would do whatever he wanted.

    Immediately following this rape, Defendant Trump threatened me that, were I ever to reveal any of the details of Defendant Trump’s sexual and physical abuse of me, my family and I wold be physically harmed if not killed.

    and from the witness:

    I personally witnessed four sexual encounters that the Plaintiff was forced to have with Mr. Trump during this period, including the fourth of these encounters where Mr. Trump forcibly raped her despite her pleas to stop.

    I personally witnessed the one occasion where Mr. Trump forced the Plaintiff and a 12-year-old female named Maria [to] perform oral sex on Mr. Trump and witnessed his physical abuse of both minors when they finished the act.

    It was my job to personally witness and supervise encounters between the underage girls that Mr. Epstein hired and his guests.
