The Young Turks: Why doesn’t the White House want an independent investigation of hospital bombing?

Cenk Uygur and John Iadarola explain their skepticism over the changing responses by the U.S. regarding the bombing in Afghanistan. Uygur and Iadarola praise the Doctors Without Borders president, Joanne Liu, for not fully accepting President Obama’s apology. “If we allow this to happen there are no bounds in war, so we can’t allow it to stand,” Uygur explains,  “And the U.S. says, ‘No don’t worry about it, we’re going to investigate ourselves.’” He adds that there should be skepticism if the U.S. and NATO conduct the investigations since they did the bombing.

With the inconsistencies in the information being given, Uygur and Iadarola make the case that an independent investigation is necessary to find the truth. On Obama’s role, Uygur says, “He has shown, lately, a lot of care to make sure that we don’t hit any civilians. And, that has greatly frustrated the military. The military and Obama have been clashing over that.”
