Nowhere was it to be found in the article. Maybe the Post hadn’t acquired the name. Or maybe it just doesn’t matter. It’s just one
more death among the countless Afghan deaths at the hands of U.S.
forces during the past 12 years.
The commander of U.S. and coalition forces in Afghanistan, Marine
Corps Gen. Joseph F. Dunford Jr., issued an apology for killing the
child. I wonder if he cited the child’s name in his apology. In any
event, no doubt Dunford is hoping that the apology will help the U.S.
government secure permission from Afghan President Hamid Karzai to keep
U.S. forces in Afghanistan past 2014.
