During the riots triggered by a traffic accident involving a US Army truck, the Army claimed that US troops fired into the air to disperse an angry crowd that gathered after the wreck.
Now the Army admits that the troops fired into the crowd.
U.S. military officials acknowledged Wednesday that American troops had fired at an angry mob that surrounded the scene of a traffic accident in the Afghan capital Monday morning. Officials previously had said the troops fired only in the air.
The armed forces seem determined to destroy any trust that exist between them and the American public.
