Sen. Rand Paul grilled Secretary of State Antony Blinken over whether the US actually knows whether a drone strike in Afghanistan killed an ISIS-K terrorist or an aid worker — adding,“You’d think you’d kind of know before you off someone,” after Blinken failed to provide a straight answer.
During a Senate Foreign Affairs Committee hearing on Afghanistan on Tuesday, Paul (R-Ky.) pressed Blinken about last month’s drone attack in Kabul, which reportedly accidentally targeted an aid worker, not a terrorist.
The article goes on to state the following:
The Republican senator questioned Blinken over the identity of the person the Biden administration “droned” after reports emerged that an innocent aid worker and his family were killed instead of the intended ISIS-K target.
Sen. Paul asked Blinken, “The guy the Biden Administration droned, was he an aid worker or an ISIS-K operative?”
Blinken replied, “The Administration is, of course, reviewing that strike and I’m sure a full assessment will be forthcoming.”
Paul pressed, “So you don’t know, or you won’t tell us?”
Blinken said, “I don’t know, because we’re reviewing it.”
Paul fired back, “You’d think you’d kind of know before you off somebody with a predator drone.”
The senator then asked if the U.S. was going to bomb something, why didn’t they bomb the helicopters and the planes they left behind?
