WASHINGTON– Gen. John Campbell, commander of U.S. forces in Afghanistan, sat before lawmakers Tuesday and responded to burning issues facing the war in Afghanistan.
U.S. forces bombed a Doctors Without Borders hospital in Kunduz and killed more than twenty innocent people after Afghan forces called for air support. Gen. Campbell called the airstrike an accident and promises transparency as three separate investigations begin.
Taliban forces also raised concerns after the terrorist organization carried out attacks in the city of Kunduz. These issues will extend the mission as the U.S. seeks a transition into an embassy state in Afghanistan, Campbell said.
