No real accountability in US investigation of Afghan massacre

At the start of May there was a bombing of Afghan civilians by Americans that killed over 100 people. The Independent writes that it was "the single deadliest for Afghan civilians since the campaign to topple the Taliban in 2001." Now, as Jeremy Scahill writes in another great report, 'The US military says errors were made, but insists the “targets” “posed legitimate threats to Afghan or American forces.”'

At the end of Scahill's article: "... there must be accountability for those responsible." Fat chance, for what the US military is saying is neither an apology nor a real admission ("errors") because it still insists the targets were legitimate!
