Pentagon Spox John Kirby: We Can’t Rule out Taliban Involvement in Attack

‘We’ve not been certain about that at all’


KIRBY: “Actually, I didn’t hear General McKenzie put it that way, Jen. In fact, I think in one of the questions he got, and I think it was Idris’ (ph), Idris asked was there a failure. And the General said, ‘Of course there was a failure somewhere obviously.’ And he even alluded to the fact that it could have been at a Taliban checkpoint. We’ve not been certain about that at all. There’ll be an investigation. We’ll try to learn as much as we can about what happened. And I really don’t want to get ahead of that process.”
