American Special Forces Destroyed a Hospital in 2015

Tales of the American Empire | May 13, 2021

President Barack Obama’s plan to reduce American combat forces in Afghanistan failed after the large city of Kunduz was overrun in September 2015. This was the first Afghan city to fall to insurgents since the war began in 2001. This embarrassment was magnified after a C-130 transport aircraft crashed while taking off from Jalalabad that claimed the lives of six American airmen and five contractors. The Taliban claimed credit, but the Americans were unsure why it crashed. The American CIA’s aerial assassination program was failing to suppress the insurgency and senior American officials were angry. Someone wanted revenge and ordered an aerial attack on a hospital in Kunduz where Taliban fighters were being treated, killing 24 patients and 18 medical staff, leaving 33 persons missing and over 30 wounded.

  1. We never should have been in Afghan to start with and 9/11 was an inside job created to cover up trillions of stolen money and to steal what they have in the middle east and control all gas and oil for the money changers and just like the Nazis did in the past they now want full control of the planet and everything on it and it has been Americas military used to gain control and destroy anyone in their way

    • Of course the world is awash in oil and gas, but what mattered most to the PNACers was the destruction of Israel’s enemies. In the case of Afghanistan, the occupation allowed the USAF to establish air bases along Iran’s eastern border.

  2. Just another case of the CIA operating independently of the USA Government, and being accountable to NO ONE, even for War Crimes. When is the USA GOVERNMENT going to pull the CIA into line?(silly question, I know).
