U.S.: Poor coordination, mapping data led to Pakistani deaths in cross-border raid

• Washington Post

The U.S. military acknowledged Thursday that commanders in Afghanistan made serious mistakes during a cross-border raid last month in which 24 Pakistani soldiers were killed.

A report about the Nov. 25 incident said investigators found that “inadequate coordination by U.S. and Pakistani military officers,” as well as erroneous map information provided by NATO to Pakistani authorities, were to blame for the battlefield blunder, which has added enormous strain to the already fraught relationship between Washington and Islamabad.
