White House Fighting Independent Investigation Of Hospital Bombing

It’s been four days now since the US bombed a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, and the calls for an independent investigation have only grown louder and more insistent in that time. Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola (Think Tank), hosts of the The Young Turks, break it down. Tell us what you think in the comment section below.

“House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) addressed his recent comments about the Benghazi committee again on Wednesday, urging people to “stop playing politics.”

McCarthy last week touted the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s success in hurting Hillary Clinton, prompting outcries from Democrats that the committee was formed for political reasons.

“Let’s be very clear: Benghazi is not polit­ic­al,” Mc­Carthy said when asked about his comments at a press conference with House leadership, according to National Journal. “It was cre­ated for one pur­pose and one pur­pose only: to find the truth on be­half of the fam­il­ies of the four dead Amer­ic­ans. Peri­od.””*

  1. "don't worry! we investigated our selves and found we did nothing wrong." hospitals should always, always be off limits! no exceptions!

  2. They are "AMERICANS" WHAT GENOVA CONVENTION The US IMPERIOM does not care about such things like INTERNATIONA LAW.

  3. Why would taliban fighters risk a HOSPITAL THAT TREATS TEHM AS WELL. They are not so STUPID LIKE mccain and co.

  4. bullcrap Afghan forces had nothing to do with it America is blaming it on them because UN isn't going to do anything to Afghanistan but they would to America so that's why they are blaming it on them

  5. I hope tyt keeps us updated on this story. This story is very important as the US attacked an international, neutral organization which will get the world's eyes on them.

  6. it is obvious that this was done deliberately …the intelligence / military had to have known that the target was a hospital and what type of hospital it was…all the satellite data and other intelligence had already painted this site as a civilian organization…the group even told the US military they were there…this was done to keep the chaos and hate going… things were cooling off too much to keep the war spending going…there is also a possibility that somebody was in the hospital they wanted to get whether US or Afghanis wanted to destroy the hospital…. the military brass / CIA don't care what happens because of their actions

  7. It sounds like Joanne Liu is holding back information. Why is she so certain the US bombed the hospital on purpose? If she has information on who was being treated and who was killed in that bombing, perhaps she should share this information.

    The only way the US bombed it on purpose was if they were treating a high profile terrorist. Joanne should tell us who they were treating and then we will know if it was an accident or not.

  8. For all of Taliban's faults, one of the main reason the movement started and gathered support in Afghanistan was the warlords kidnapping and enslaving young boys for sexual slavery with impunity. To attribute that behavior to Taliban is patently false. Cenk, please check your facts…This is akin to blaming Taliban or the opium trade when they were in power, when in fact they were credited by UN for banning and eradicating opium cultivation.

  9. What about the July 1, 2002, a U.S. airstrike in the town of Deh Rawood? It resulted in 34 dead and 50+ wounded. It was a wedding party/reception. Hmmm? Well, there is more to the story: That was the area that "One Eyed" Mullah Omar (the leader of the Taliban) came from. US Military intel. ,possibly, predicted (wrongly) that Mullah Omar would be there and they shot up the crowd. This connection has never been publicized by any media outlet. I came up with that theory on my own and am not divulging any military secrets. But, externally, it is "logical". I'd apply the same dialectic to the hospital bombing. Maybe there was some local "Taliban" leaders whose family members were at that hospital. Maybe some local competing factions/tribal leaders gave military "intel" that indicated this. It's a common tribal tool that they use. Gota look into it. There maybe something else (or more to it) under the surface.

  10. In Desert Storm, the Red Cross was being bombed. Apparently all the computer printers that the US supplied to the Iraq govt had transmitters to located them. Those printers ended up being in the Red Cross, and hence putting a target on them

  11. Apparently the "without borders" part confuses some people and nations.

    Like.. that doctors are unaffiliated with "sides" in regards to treatment and care.

  12. Here you go Republicans, an actual "conspiracy" you should be digging into to figure out what exactly happened and who should be held accountable.


  13. the U.S. has been killing civillians in the middle east with bombings for a while now..the only reason it's news now is because a european organization was hit.

  14. In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist.

  15. They should have an independent investigation, never trust the people who are being investigated to find the truth.
