BREAKING: US Forces that Repeatedly Bombed Afghan Hospital, Knew it was a Hospital All Along

US-Forces-Knew-they-were-Repeatedly-Bombing-a-Hospital-in-Afghanistan---Report

Earlier this month, an aerial bombing in the Afghan city of Kunduz was conducted by the United States. During the bombing raid, a hospital was hit multiple times by US bombs.

The bombardment left more than 20 members of staff and patients dead and dozens more injured.

Almost immediately, the play on semantics began with Col Brian Tribus, spokesman for international forces in Afghanistan releasing the following statement noting the “collateral damage.”

“US forces conducted an airstrike in Kunduz city at 2:15am [local time] on 3 October against individuals threatening the force. The strike may have resulted in collateral damage to a nearby medical facility. This incident is under investigation.”

Since the raid, the American government has been backpedaling. They changed the “official story” at least four times and have been scrambling to distract you from the truth.

One consistent part of the official narrative has been that the US did not know that they were bombing a hospital. However, a breaking report by the AP suggests that this was a lie.

New information suggests the US deliberately targeted the Kunduz hospital, killing 22 patients and staff, despite knowing it was a protected medical site.

US special operations analysts investigated the hospital for days prior to the deadly October 3 attack, describing the hospital as a base of operations for a Pakistani agent coordinating Taliban activities, AP has learned from a former intelligence official familiar with the documents.

The site, operated by Doctors Without Borders (Medecins sans frontieres, MSF), was attacked five times in the span of an hour by a C-130 gunship, despite repeated please by the MSF to US forces. MSF official described repeated strafing runs against the main hospital building, which housed the emergency room and the intensive care unit. No surrounding buildings were hit, they say.

How many innocent men, women, and children must die before the United States can declare a victory on the war on terror? A hundred, a thousand, a million, ten million? What number will be enough to satisfy the blood-thirsty politicians in their perpetual expansion of the military industrial complex?

      Evil empire trying to control the world better than the Romans

    • Why is an American soldier guarding opium poppy fields in the first place. I know why…

  • Knew*

  • Well the people calling in the strike did, however it is said they may not have told their commanders…

    • That is a helipad. It doesn’t mean hospital

    • I don’t think anyone is blowing it out of proportion. Those assholes called in a strike in a hospital. Maybe they should go the hell home instead.

  • Knew*

  • Yeah lol please fix the “new” lol. I’m sorry but I can’t focus on the message cuz my ADHD keeps bringing me back to the “new” and I can’t focus on the HEY WANNA RIDE BIKES!!!

  • Duh… This has been established already

  • Dakota Kimmerer

  • Duh

  • Of course they did!

  • I just hope Obama gets the same credit for this as he got for “getting” bin Laden

  • What’s your point?

  • Its pretty sad that even our military will follow unethical/immoral orders killing women/children elderly…No wonder the world hates us and has no respect for America

    • That’s why when they say they will never turn on American citizens, I don’t believe them.

    • We dont hate you, we hate the CRAP that rule this world. Only wish that more or ever better everyone open up their eyes and minds. We are all in this shit and as it looks right now… we are all going down….

    • Erik has a point.. because instead of unite againt the crap people seems more likely to turn on eachother (black against white, christians against muslims etc and vice versa.

      Thats what the crap whats… because then we have no chance against them..

    • Nice Gran Exactly it starts with our military, and police saying no to unconstitutional/unethical orders, and the foolish people of this country to stop buying the products of these companies that control capital hill.

    • America already has turned on the public, tortured and experimented

  • Of course.

  • Heartless Bastards! War Crime!

  • Jake White

  • we thought it was a mosque with doctors and ambulances and possible WMD’s

  • The Bush And Obama Administration And The Pilot’s Who Followed The Orders Those Who Gave The Orders Should All Be Indited for war crimes

  • I wonder why eh?

  • The hospital against the TPP ‘s negative impact on hospital costs. In the legal consensus , that is motive . Not saying their guitly , just calls for deeper investigation

  • Simply means that the hospital was not the primary target…….someone in the hospital was the objective………”ijs”

  • I’m not surprised

  • Nothing the US government does surprises me anymore.

  • Can someone tell me why US Forces are still involved in Afghanistan if the war in Afghanistan was officially over back in 2014?
