10 Afghan civilians killed in US airstrike | Despite Planned Troop Withdrawal, Special Ops & Private Forces Prepare to Continue Afghan War

A U.S.-led airstrike killed 10 civilians, mostly women and children, in a raid on a Taliban hideout in a remote region of eastern Afghanistan, local officials said Wednesday.

"Five children, four women and a man were killed in the raid," Kunar provincial governor, Sayed Fazulullah Wahidi, told AFP.

A spokesman for NATO forces said they were investigating the allegations.

Kelly, co-coordinator of Voices for Creative Nonviolence, warns Afghan civilians continue to suffer from longest running war in U.S. history. Civilian casualties caused by US-led NATO forces are a highly sensitive issue in Afghanistan and are regularly condemned by President Hamid Karzai.

Blackwater is now running a base just outside of Kabul used by the Special Operations Joint Task Force.
