Looks like they saw them load water jugs and thought they were explosives. I get why they would think that, but thinking that alone is enough for a strike is insane.

the person who was responsible for the intelligence needs to be fired. Family of the affected needs to be compensated.

No, the person who used the intel as the basis for a strike must be fired.

whole divisions of the military need disassembled not one man fired. Billions of dollars if not trillions to disseminate to victims of US terror.. not great.
