You, I, Us, Are Murderers

After giving itself a pat on the back and high fives for supposedly taking out a high-ranking official involved with the Islamic terrorist group “Al-Qaeda,” the Biden administration has since, quietly ceased it’s claims of victory and retracted it’s celebratory pose. U.S. officials had previously asserted that they had obliterated a “senior Al Qaeda leader.”

This walk back by the administration and the U.S. military, came after it was discovered that the man killed, had zero ties to any terrorist group and was simply a father of 10, who was taking care of the family farm before he was killed by a missile fired in Syria by U.S. forces, according to the Washington Post.

As was noted by foreign news outlets, but largely ignored by the American mainstream media attempting to prevent condemnation and embarrassment to an administration it helped get elected, the man who had his life horrifically taken in the strike was Lotfi Hassan Misto, a 56-year-old man whose family has described him as kind and hard-working.

“We are no longer confident we killed a senior AQ official,” a U.S. official reportedly informed the Post, speaking under the condition of anonymity. Another insisted that “though we believe the strike did not kill the original target, we believe the person to be al-Qaeda.” The disingenuous attitude of these people knows no boundaries.

The Daily Wire reported that the Pentagon, has remained largely silent about the attack, a tell-tell sign of deception by omission, and has not released information about its intended target, whether or not they are still at large, and what evidence it has, if any, that Misto was even involved with Al-Qaeda.

“Centcom takes all such allegations seriously and is investigating to determine whether or not the action may have unintentionally resulted in harm to civilians,” stated Michael Lawhorn, a spokesman for Central Command. Again, the disingenuous attitude of these people knows no boundaries.

A recent colossal disaster by the Biden government, that many Americans have forgotten, occurred in August 2021, when the Biden administration during the chaotic withdrawal from Afghanistan, launched a drone strike in Kabul, killing ten civilians, among them seven children. The youngest victims of the airstrike were two 2-year-old girls.

“We are confident we successfully hit the target,” Central Command claimed at the time. “Significant secondary explosions from the vehicle indicated the presence of a substantial amount of explosive material.” It was a full tank of gas.

The US had carried out what it called a defensive air strike targeting a suspected ISIS-K suicide bomber who posed an "imminent" threat to the Hamid Karzai International Airport, US Central Command had said. But that wasn’t the case. Later on, in another statement, it was acknowledged that the Central Command, was “aware of reports of civilian casualties” following the vehicle strike in Kabul.

Gen. Frank McKenzie, the top general of US Central Command, at the Pentagon told reporters that the strike, which he said killed seven children, was a "mistake" and offered an apology. An apology isn’t going to heal the hearts of the surviving family. We committed an atrocious act of evil.

As our government is elected by us, all of its actions, benevolent or nefarious, are ours. We are both contributors in the good it may do, but by the same token, we are complicit in the wrong and evil it commits. God does not differentiate from the one who pulled the trigger to the one who sanctioned it. That’s why You, I, Us, are all murderers, if only by proxy.
