Over a Dozen Military Personnel Punished for Kunduz Hospital Bombing

US-Forces-Knew-they-were-Repeatedly-Bombing-a-Hospital-in-Afghanistan-ReportBy Joshua Krause

The US military has reportedly punished more than a dozen officers and enlisted men for the botched bombing of the MSF hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, which killed 42 people and injured over 30 more. However, these individuals are only going to be punished with administrative and non-judicial actions. No criminal charges will be filed for the incident, which the US Military claims was caused by human error and a faulty mapping system on the aircraft.

Despite the claims of the US Military, there is plenty of evidence to suggest that the bombing of the Kunduz hospital was no accident. MSF personnel report being strafed by an American aircraft as they fled the hospital, and the US military had been gathering intel on the building for several days before the bombing occurred. It’s just as likely that the attack was deliberate, and the higher-ups in the US Military are scapegoating these men for their crimes. Either that, or they needed to pass down a few light punishments to make it look like they are being thorough and responsible.

However, regardless of whether or not this attack was an accident, somebody made a decision that unnecessarily killed dozens of civilians, and if it was an accident, all the evidence shows that the bombing was entirely avoidable. Whoever is responsible for this attack, is either grossly negligent or a murderer, and they deserve more than an administrative slap on the wrist.

  1. Americans in uniforms can get away with murder – Imagine if it happened to americans in america not just ‘brown people’ over ‘there’ – there would be such an outraged reaction. Forty two human beings murdered and Thirty injured and they are just ‘naughty boys’.

    • “Americans in uniforms can get away with murder…” so true, and it’s a good thing they’re required to wear uniforms so we can tell them apart from all the honest, law-abiding, peace-loving Americans.

      • Lol, That’s also so true. I think it’s one of the effects of a uniform, a sort of depersonalizing that subverts normal morality.
