Biden ‘has overseen loss in a variety of scenarios’
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was confronted by a reporter about the Biden Admin’s drone strike that killed 10 Afghan civilians, which included seven children.
When confronted with the strikes, Psaki invoked Biden’s dead children.
Biden’s son Beau died from cancer in 2015.
Biden’s first wife and daughter both died in a car accident in 1972.
“As a human being, as a president, as somebody who has overseen loss in a variety of scenarios… his reaction is — every loss is a tragedy.”
Psaki invokes Biden’s dead son & daughter as proof he emphasizes w/the families of the Afghans that the U.S. government accidentally droned to death: “As a human being, as a President,. as somebody who has overseen loss…as a leader & personally, his reaction is it’s a tragedy” pic.twitter.com/Co3N32s0yY

Last week, the Pentagon admitted its drone strike in Kabul was a “tragic mistake.”
The head of US central command, General Kenneth Franklin McKenzie Jr, said it is “unlikely” the vehicle targeted and the slain civilians were a direct threat or associated with ISIS-K.
“This strike was taken in the earnest belief that it would prevent an imminent threat to our forces and the evacuees at the airport,” he said.
“But it was a mistake and I offer my sincere apology.”
Neon Nettle previously reported the man targeted by the U.S. Military in the drone strike was Afghan ally Zemari Ahmadi.
Joe Biden’s Pentagon killed 10 innocent people, told you they’d killed ISIS leaders, and as we learn the information Biden is lounging on the beach taking zero accountability and the Pentagon plans to fire no one. The failed swamp protecting its own. Disgrace.

But the NYT reported the man had no ties to ISIS and was just carrying water to family members.
“The evidence suggests that his travels that day actually involved transporting colleagues to and from work.”
“And an analysis of video feeds showed that what the military may have seen was Mr. Ahmadi and a colleague loading canisters of water into his trunk to bring home to his family.”
