Dumb and dumber

What [the chief of the US Air Force's Combat Command] uses the aircraft he does have in Iraq and Afghanistan, he risks ending up, as in central Afghanistan last week, dropping (literally) two tons of bombs on a house containing five women, three children and one man, killing them all, because a U.S. patrol thought it had seen two men carrying Kalashnikovs enter the compound the house was in. Thus are hearts and minds won.
--William Pfaff (IHT, 3 March)
