US military debates release of Afghan air strike probe

The release of a Pentagon investigation into deadly US air strikes in Afghanistan has been delayed amid an internal debate about what details of the report should be revealed, US officials said on Thursday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Translation: we are unlikely to ever see any details of these airstrikes revealed.

Were I a betting person, I would bet that we will see an increase in these kinds of strikes, with ever more collateral damage (i.e., the destruction of the lives of innocent civilians), because the Pentagon doesn't know what else to do.

The US is essentially trying to win what is a ground war from the air. We tried that tactic in Viet Nam; it didn't work then either.

One would think that the US civilian and military leadership would have learned that lesson, but apparently not.

Unfortunately, that doesn't augur well for the US military campaign in Afghanistan.
