The Pentagon plans to work more actively with the Department of State to help. Afghans who are relatives of the victims of the August attack.
The attack on Kabul was struck by American forces in late August. So, Several days after the attack on the international airport. Which became a serious precondition for a new tragedy.
On the evening of August 26, a suicide bomber made a self-detonation. At one of the checkpoints of the air harbor. Then an IED was placed in a parked car has detonated. The third explosion occurred near the Baron Hotel, located nearby.

By the “grace” of the United States
Now the Pentagon has again recalled its intentions to somehow smooth over the situation that is inconvenient for Washington. And ex-gratia payments should help the United States get rid of pressure from human rights defenders.
Erroneous attacks on civilians and civilian targets are not uncommon. For US troops involved in one way or another in most modern armed conflicts. However, now Afghanistan has become a problem region. To which the close attention of the world community is riveted.
And the fact that, after a 20-year presence, the United States withdrew. So, Its troops and left the country to its fate. Literally giving it over to the Taliban 1 (banned in Russia), is a serious strain on Washington’s international reputation. And each fatal mistake of the Pentagon further aggravates the situation. It will not be possible to forget about the incident in Kabul.
Zehn Menschen starben bei einem Drohnenangriff der USA im August in strike in kabul. So, Das US-Verteidigungsministerium erklärte. Dass es den Verbliebenen der Zivilisten eine Entschädigung zahlt und eine Ausreise in die USA ermögliche.
Escape from real responsibility
Now Washington is once again seeking to avoid legal responsibility for the crime committed by the Pentagon employees. And 10 peaceful Afghans in Kabul died precisely “by the mercy” of the United States. And the voluntary provision of ex-gratia compensation, in this case, becomes the price of silence.
Surely some of the families who lost their children. It could not count on asylum in the United States. Such an opportunity has provided only to those. Who collaborated with the Western coalition during the armed operation. But now the State Department is ready to play this card too.
voluntary payment of compensation
And is it possible in this case to talk about some “voluntary payment of compensation”. When it comes to a real murder, a crime. So, The fact of which has been proven?
Nevertheless, the American administration plans to publicly “save”. Several more people. Rom the Taliban in order to openly say that the “guilt strike in kabul” of the military has completely atoned for. Even without its legal recognition.
