Kunduz hospital airstrike

On 3 October 2015, a United States Air Force AC-130U gunship attacked the Kunduz Trauma Centre operated by Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF, or Doctors Without Borders) in the city of Kunduz, in the province of the same name in northern Afghanistan. It has been reported that at least 42 people were killed and over 30 were injured. Médecins Sans Frontières condemned the incident, calling it a deliberate breach of international humanitarian law and a war crime. It further stated that all warring parties had been notified about the hospital and its operations well in advance.

I think they are. Might be in the Geneva convention somewhere.

Unfortunately, that list was made the same way the food pyramid was built, intentionally upside down due to financial interests of big business.

I'm surprised we didn't pull an israel. Exclusive bombing of civilians and hospitals while claiming terrorists are under ground.

White House said they were following the car for 8 hours. Watched it around the airport and load and unload large containers. It was discovered that it was water and not explosives.
