No criminal charges for US soldiers who murdered 42 people

"The US military has disciplined more than a dozen service members after an air strike on a Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) hospital in Afghanistan killed 42 people last year.

The Pentagon has acknowledged that the clinic was targeted by mistake, but no personnel will face criminal charges.

The Associated Press reported that the sanctions, which were not made public, were mostly administrative.

Some received formal reprimands while others were suspended from duty.
Both officers and enlisted personnel were disciplined, but no generals were punished."

Please email MSF and tell them you support their efforts to bring criminal charges against those US soldiers and Army Gen John Campbell, the top US commander in Afghanistan at the time.
