To add my comments…
Navy Rear Adm. John Kirby, Pentagon press secretary needs to pay closer attention to who is sources are. However, judging by the company they train (ISIS), one would not be surprised. Lt. Gen. James L. Terry has not a clue what his facts are. He told reporters at a Pentagon news conference that his organization is extremely careful and deliberate about its targeting.
“We have some great capability in terms of precision,” Terry said, speaking of airstrikes in Iraq and efforts to avoid hitting either civilians or friendly Iraqi forces. “To date, we’ve got a very good record. I am tracking no civilian casualties.”
He isnt “tracking no civilian casualities” because he isnt looking for them. Perhaps you should.
As of 7 January 2015 RT Reports:
US admits civilians might have died in coalition air strikes in Syria and Iraq
The US is reviewing the possibility that civilians may have died in coalition air strikes in Iraq and Syria. Central Command is carrying out the investigation and has admitted for the first time that members of the general public could have perished.
US Central Command is overseeing 18 incidents, in which civilians were possibly killed. Thirteen have already been dismissed; however, officials say that five merit further review. Defense officials added that two cases have warranted formal investigation.
“What I know is that Central Command is investigating several (of) what they believe to be credible allegations of civilian casualties,” Pentagon spokesman Rear Admiral John Kirby told reporters, according to AFP.
Take note USA, Syria is STILL a sovereign nation, and you have no business in it at all. It amounts to nothing short of war crimes creating an enemy to fight.
