Afghans Demand Truth About Kabul Airport Massacre as U.S. Continues to Deny Soldiers Shot Civilians

A major investigation by CNN suggests U.S. soldiers opened fire on Afghan civilians last August after a massive suicide bomb exploded outside the Kabul International Airport. Compiling hospital records of gunshot wounds, video evidence, and eyewitness accounts, CNN’s report directly contradicts the Pentagon’s narrative, which said over 180 people were killed in the single blast that ISIS-K claimed responsibility for.

Democracy Now! speaks to one of the co-authors of the CNN report, Nick Paton Walsh, who says reporters found 19 people “who quite specifically said they saw people shot in front of them or were shot themselves.
