More "collateral damage" - US army kills 6 Afghan children

A US military operation in Afghanistan has left 6 children and two adults dead. The victims were crushed to death when a wall collapsed during the attack on Friday. Nine other children had been killed on Saturday.

Incredibly, a US army spokesperson, Lieutenant Colonel Bryan Hilferty, blamed the victims for their deaths:
"...if non-combatants surround themselves with thousands of weapons and hundreds of rounds of ammunition and howitzers and mortars in a compound known to be used by a terrorist, we are not completely responsible for the consequences," he said.
Does Hilferty really believe that a bunch of children "surrounded themselves" with weapons and ammunition? Unbelievable.
