Massive Military Mistake: The U.S. Defense Department admitted on Monday that an airstrike in Afghanistan three days earlier accidentally killed a mother and her five children. The airstrike mistakenly targeted a family home in the Sangin district, according to the New York Times. The strike was in retaliation for a Taliban attack, the paper said. The regional commander, Maj. Gen. Charles Gurganus, is expected to issue a formal apology for the strike in a few days. [Photo: AP]
