Accountability for killing, moral responsibility for collateral damage in America's post-9/11 wars, Neta Crawford

Summary
In May 2009, American B-1B bombers dropped 2000-pound and 500-pound bombs in the village of Garani, Afghanistan following a Taliban attack. The dead included anywhere from 25 to over 100 civilians. The US military went into damage control mode, making numerous apologies to the Afghan government and the townspeople. Afterward, the military announced that it would modify its aerial support tactics. This episode was hardly an anomaly. As anyone who has followed the Afghanistan war knows, these types of incidents occur with depressing regularity. Indeed, as Neta Crawford shows in this book, they are intrinsic to the American way of warfare today
