    Pope Francis hails pro-abortion Irish president as a wise man

    Defense Sec apologizes for drone strike which killed 7 kids

    Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin admitted the United States military may have killed up to 10 civilians including seven children in a drone strike in Kabul Afghanistan on August 29 that was intended to kill an Islamic attacker reports Breitbartcom

    In a statement Austin said The investigation concluded that the strike conducted to prevent what was believed to be an imminent threat to Hamid Karzai International Airport resulted in the deaths of as many as 10 people including up to seven children

    On behalf of the men and women of the Department of Defense I offer my deepest condolences to surviving family members of those who were killed including Mr Ahmadi and to the staff of Nutrition and Education International Mr Ahmadis employer

    We apologize and we will endeavor to learn from this horrible mistake

    CRUZ There were four decisions this administration made that I think were utterly indefensible

    Number one Abandoning the Bagram Airfield giving it to the Taliban That is a decision that 100 years from now will be studied at war colleges as a colossal strategic mistake Giving up to secure airfields necessitating an evacuation from a dense urban environment a commercial airport which led tragically to the suicide bombings and murders that killed 13 American servicemen and women Had we been evacuated from Bagram with a secure perimeter the odds are quite high that atta...

    Fox reporter Why is Biden forcing COVID shot on businesses not illegals
