I guess this is supposed to make us feel better about killing all those people and driving all those doctors and nurses out of Afghanistan:

The airstrike that killed 22 people at a Doctors without Borders hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan was requested by Afghan forces, not U.S. troops, according to the top U.S. general in Afghanistan.

Army Gen. John Campbell said that Afghan forces advised that they were taking fire from enemy positions and asked for air support from U.S. forces. Campbell made it clear that this differed from initial reports that said U.S. forces were under attack and called in the airstrikes for their defense.
