No Charges in NATO Airstrike

No service members will face disciplinary charges over the NATO airstrike in November that killed 24 Pakistani soldiers. A previous American investigation found that the U.S. and Pakistan were both to blame for the deadly strike, but that Pakistan fired first. Based on these findings, a second inquiry was set up to figure out whether any American personnel should be punished over the incident. The review found that the Americans fired in self-defense. One military official said, “We found nothing criminally negligent on the part of any individual in our investigations of the incident.”
