US Muslim group asks Pentagon officials to resign

Any Pentagon official directly involved in a botched air strike in Afghanistan last year should resign, including US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, a Muslim-American advocacy group has demanded.

The US-based Muslim body Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) also called for the resignation of “any military officials who had a direct role in approving the drone strike that killed 10 civilians” in August.

CAIR National Deputy Director Edward Ahmed Mitchell said the video shows “the Pentagon launched a reckless attack that was guaranteed to kill innocent people in a densely-packed neighbourhood.”

“This attack was not simply an honest mistake or a rare occurrence; it was the latest in a long line of reckless drone strikes that have killed innocent people at homes, weddings and funerals in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, and elsewhere,” said Mitchell.
