Pentagon calls Kabul strike ‘tragic mistake’

The Pentagon admitted that a drone strike in Afghanistan was a “tragic mistake” after the Biden administration hailed it as “righteous” for weeks. An apology from the U.S. appears to mean little to Kabul residents who are now mourning after the strike killed 10 people last month. Seven of those casualties were children.
