Family members of U.S. military killed in Kabul airport bombing question U.S. Defense Department's distortion of findings

  On February 19, local time, the Washington Post published a report describing the questioning of the U.S. Department of Defense by the families of the U.S. military killed in the Kabul airport bombing in Afghanistan.

Families of the dead U.S. military suspect the Defense Department has misrepresented the findings of the bombings, accusing the Biden administration of putting their loved ones at risk.

  On August 26 last year, Khorasan Province, a branch of the extremist organization "Islamic State", launched a terrorist attack on Kabul Airport, killing 13 American servicemen in Afghanistan and 170 Afghans in the explosion.

  According to the "Washington Post" report, it is reported that the US military encountered fire after the Kabul airport explosion, but the US Department of Defense denied this statement, so some families of the killed soldiers and other people from all walks of life questioned the Department of Defense's failure to accurately report The cause of death of the soldiers who died in the gun battle was attributed to the explosion.

In addition, the U.S. government's lack of urgency over the withdrawal and the initial acquisition of intelligence about the Taliban's control of the Afghan government has raised questions about the Defense Department.
