Gates Expresses Regret For Recent Civilian Deaths In Afghanistan

Gates’ unusual apology followed a frank assessment from the top military commander in Afghanistan: There aren’t enough U.S. ground forces in Afghanistan so the military is relying more heavily on air power, and air power runs a greater risk of civilian deaths.

After meeting with Afghan President Hamid Karzai and other senior government officials, Gates said at a news conference, “As I told them, I offer all Afghans my sincere condolences and personal regret for the recent loss of innocent life as a result of coalition airstrikes.” >>>>>

That fact that the U.S. is an occupation force, in Afghanistan illegally and based on many lies that have led them to the ethnic cleansing of Afghanis, makes any death caused by the U.S. in Afghanistan a “loss of innocent life.”
