In the most recent US air strike gone wrong, 8 Afghan soldiers were injured. At this time we know that four Afghan soldiers have returned to active duty and that four are still in the hospital. The US has had a history of accidentally attacking friendly troops since the invasion of Afghanistan in 2001.

KABUL (Reuters) - Eight Afghan soldiers have been wounded in an erroneous aerial bombardment by U.S. forces in central Afghanistan, a Defense Ministry spokesman said on Sunday.


Please visit the link provided for the complete story.


The sad part of this story is that the US military initially reported that 10 Taliban fighters were killed that four Afghan soldiers were wounded while fighting the Taliban.

With a number like 10 Taliban fighters pulled out of nowhere It makes you wonder if mistakes like that are misreported on purpose or covered up with disinformation.

Perhaps, but you also have to account for battlefield confusion and give the inital reports the benifit of the doubt. To hae corrected it so fast seems to not point at a coverup. A month later would be a different story
