In a massive hellhole called the Middle East, and I know the media has forgotten the THREE wars, but they rage on, and our troops are still dying even while politicians in DC use them as a ping pong ball Friendly Fire? Does It Matter? How? No, It Doesn’t.
In what appeared to be the first case of U.S. troops being hit by “friendly fire” from a drone aircraft, two American servicemen were killed by a Hellfire missile after apparently being mistaken for insurgents moving to attack another group of Marines in southern Afghanistan.
A Predator drone fired the missile that killed a Marine and a Navy medic in Helmand province last week, according to two Pentagon officials.
Drones have been involved in airstrikes that accidentally killed Afghan and Pakistani civilians since the U.S. began using them in the region a decade ago, becoming a flashpoint for anti-American sentiment. But until now, no U.S. service members have been reported killed by an unmanned Air Force aircraft in error.
It really doesn’t matter how they die, it’s the brutal reality that they are still dying, and the media wing of the Democrat Party is hiding it from the public in order to protect their President, Mr. Obama.Â When I say, “their President” I mean the media’s President!
