In a last ditch effort to try and salvage his complete screw up the the Afghan withdrawal, Biden ordered an air strike on what he thought was a an ISIS target. Turns out it wasn’t an ISIS target they hit at all. It was a Mr. Ahmadi, a civilian aid worker.
Mr. Ahmadi has no connections to ISIS and is as far from as ISIS member as you can get. He worked as an electrical engineer for Nutritional and Education International, which is a California-based aid group. He loved the US and hoped he could one day move his family to the US via his charity and aid work. Instead, Biden killed him for it.
What’s worse is that the drone strike took place right after filling up large canisters of water to deliver for aid. He was just getting home and his family was coming out to great him and help unload his car when the missile strike hit. It killed 10 members of his family, including 7 children.
The Biden admin knew quickly that they messed up and tried to cover up their war crime claiming the Mr. Ahmadi has explosives in his car and that it blew up after the air strike. This was proven false as there was no sign of a second explosion. They were lying to cover up their war crime.
The Geneva Convention defines war crimes in various ways, the ones that apply here are:
- Intentionally directing attacks against the civilian population as such or against individual civilians not taking direct part in hostilities;
- Intentionally directing attacks against civilian objects, that is, objects which are not military objectives;
- Intentionally directing attacks against personnel, installations, material, units or vehicles involved in a humanitarian assistance or peacekeeping mission in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations, as long as they are entitled to the protection given to civilians or civilian objects under the international law of armed conflict;
- Intentionally launching an attack in the knowledge that such attack will cause incidental loss of life or injury to civilians or damage to civilian objects or widespread, long-term and severe damage to the natural environment which would be clearly excessive in relation to the concrete and direct overall military advantage anticipated;
- Attacking or bombarding, by whatever means, towns, villages, dwellings or buildings which are undefended and which are not military objectives.
