Veterans Organization Denounces U.S. Bombing of Afghan Hospital

ST. LOUIS - Veterans For Peace condemns the U.S. bombing of the Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan. The sustained attack by one or more U.S. fighter jets left 22 people dead, including staff members, patients and children, and caused great destruction to the hospital.

A U.S. military spokesperson in Afghanistan has referred to the attack as “collateral damage,” but eyewitness accounts and Afghan military sources indicate the hospital was attacked deliberately, on the pretext that members of the Taliban were treated there.
