U.S. commander in Afghanistan to vet report on MSF hospital bombing
After the attack, Gen. John F. Campbell, the overall commander for U.S. Forces in Afghanistan, gave conflicting accounts of what happened. Campbell later said the hospital was “mistakenly struck.” The Defense Department has declined to give an explanation pending results of the investigation.
Doctors Without Borders and some Democratic members of Congress called for an independent inquiry into the attack. Days after the incident, Secretary of Defense Ashton Carter promised a “full and transparent investigation.”
