Re: More bad news

Rick, It is reported that the car belonged to a man who worked for one of the aid organizations from outside Afghanistan. One must wonder how he was targeted? Was the information developed from intercepts? From humint? Nothing but questions here. The car wasn't even near the airport. It was at the man's home. Did the drone operator follow it from the airport area, where the man had been delivering water to those waiting? Nothing but questions. No one will be fired, no one will resign.

Re: More bad news

The eyes of hindsight are crystal clear... both points well taken. The latest ... it appears the intelligence was developed from TALIBAN SOURCES! If that turns out to be valid then heads should roll!

Re: More bad news

I’ve agonized over this tragedy and Rick’s comments reflect many of my thoughts. It’s not hard to understand that the loss of our 13 brothers and sisters a few days before influenced the analysis and our subsequent drone hit. That said, I hope there are resignations forthcoming from any key individuals in the decision process. It’s about honor and the right thing. The same thing can be said about the “plan” for our withdrawal.
