NATO, You Missed

NATO killed Gadhafi’s son and 3 of his grandchildren but somehow managed to miss their target altogether.

Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi survived a NATO airstrike on Saturday night that killed his youngest son Saif al-Arab and three of his grandchildren, a Libyan government spokesman said.  Mussa Ibrahim said Saif al-Arab was a civilian and a student who had studied in Germany. He was 29 years old.

That’s genuinely tragic.  Hit your target or don’t strike at all.

  1. Sadly, this is one of the tragedies of this kind of war. But were they really “friendlies”? I don’t know, perhaps NATO does.
