Pentagon: No plans to send investigators to Afghanistan to scrutinize US drone strike

The Pentagon does not plan to put investigators on the ground to assess whether “an imminent ISIS-K threat” targeted during a U.S. drone strike in Afghanistan actually had ties to the terrorist organization, the Defense Department’s top spokesman said Monday.

“I don’t foresee an option at this point ... that would put investigators on the ground in Kabul to complete their assessment,” press secretary John Kirby told reporters at the Pentagon.

U.S. Central Command “is still assessing the results of that strike, and they have a variety of means to do that, and I’m just not going to get ahead of where they are in terms of the process,” he added.
