imageAid worker Zemari Ahmadi, 43, was driving the 1996 Toyota Corolla that was destroyed in the August 29 drone strike The drone strike that the Pentagon claimed killed an ISIS-K suicide bomber in Kabul actually targeted an aid worker who had filled his car with water jugs, rather than explosives, according to a shocking new report.Zemari Ahmadi, 43, was driving the 1996 Toyota Corolla that was destroyed in the August 29 drone strike, killing him and nine family members, including seven children, according to a New York Times investigation.US military still maintain that only three people died, despite the family now detailing in the new report how their 10 relatives were killed in the blast.Ahmadi worked for US-based aid group Nutrition and Education International, and spent the day running routine errands for the group, loading nothing into the car other than jugs full of water to bring home to his family, the Times reported, citing witnesses and surveillance video footage.’All of them were innocent,’ Ahmadi’s brother Emal told the newspaper, noting that Ahmadi had sought refugee status with the US based on his international aid work.’You say he was ISIS , but he worked for the Americans.’ Emal Ahmadi, another relative of the strike’s victims, told the BBC that his two-year-old daughter who was killed in the strike while the family were waiting for a phone call from US personnel instructing them to go to the airport for evacuation 12-year-old Farzad Ahmadi was among the oldest of the children killed according to Ramin Yousufi, a member of the family who vilified the US strike as a ‘brutal attack which happened based on wrong information’ Faisal Ahmadi, 16, was among the seven children who witnesses say were killed in the strike The Pentagon has insisted that Ahmadi’s movements linked him to an ISIS-K safehouse, and that there were explosives in his vehicle intended to be used in a suicide attack on US troops in the final hours of the Kabul evacuation.

‘This was a righteous strike,’ said Joint Chiefs Chairman Mark A.Milley last week, claiming that Ahmadi was an ‘ISIS facilitator’.

In a statement to on Friday, Pentagon Press Secretary John Kirby stood by the intelligence assessment that led to the strike, but did not deny there were civilian casualties.’U.S.Central Command continues to assess the results of the airstrike in Kabul on August 29.We won’t get ahead of that assessment,’ said Kirby.

‘However, as we have said, no other military works harder than we do to prevent civilian casualties,’ he added.’Additionally, as Chairman Milley said, the strike was based on good intelligence, and we still believe that it prevented an imminent threat to the airport and to our men and women that were still serving at the airport,’ the spokesman said.The drone strike occurred at the home where Ahmadi lived with three of his brothers and their families.

A separate US drone strike in remote Nangarhar Province on August 27 killed two alleged ISIS-K planners and facilitators, according to the Pentagon, though their identities have not yet been publicly confirmed.On the morning of August 29, Ahmadi left his family home a few kilometers west of the Kabul airport at around 9am.It was around this time that US officials tell the Times that his car came under surveillance.An MQ-9 Reaper drone tracked Ahmadi’s Corolla as he went about his day, picking up two passengers and the laptop from the home of N.E.I.’s country director on his way to work.The Pentagon claims that the vehicle was tracked after leaving a known ISIS-K safehouse, but it is unclear whether this refers to Ahmadi’s home or one of his stops on the way to work.However, an improvised rocket attack on the Kabul airport was launched from a car near the home of the non-profit director the morning after the drone strike.The Times visited the director, who said he had nothing to do with ISIS and had his own refugee resettlement case pending in the US.

Witnesses say he and his co-workers went to a Taliban-controlled police station that morning to request permission to distribute food to displaced refugees living in a nearby park.They returned to the offices at around 2pm, and surveillance footage shows that Ahmadi began filling up water jugs with a hose, which his family say he brought home from the office after water service was cut off in their neighborhood.’I filled the containers myself, and helped him load them into the trunk,’ a guard at the office told the Times.Meanwhile, US officials say that their surveillance drone tracked Ahmadi to a compound eight to 12 kilometers southwest of the airport, where he was observed loading heavy packages into the car.The location matched the offices of N.E.I., a California-based non-profit that promotes the cultivation of soy crops in Afghanistan.Witnesses say Ahmadi loaded nothing into his car other than the water jugs in the trunk and two laptops in the passenger compartment.

Leaving work, gave his two co-workers rides home.They told the Times that it was a normal commute, except that Ahmadi did not turn on his car radio to listen to pop music as normal, for fear of running afoul of the Taliban.Ramal Ahmadi, centre, is supported by family members at the mass funeral of the 10 victims killed in the drone strike When Ahmadi arrived home, his children, nieces and nephews ran out of the house to greet him, some of them piling into the car as he backed it in to the gated courtyard, according to witnesses.US officials say that operator of the Reaper drone quickly scanned and saw only a single adult male greeting the vehicle, and therefore assessed with ‘reasonable certainty’ that no women, children or noncombatants would be killed.

A Hellfire missile struck the Corolla before its engine shut off.Ahmadi’s brother Romal was sitting on the ground floor with his wife when a sudden blast blew out the windows.They ran outside to discover a scene of devastation and death.Six of those who died were inside the car, the others were in the garden of the home in the tightly-packed Khajeh Baghra neighbourhood.Samia Ahmadi told the New York Times she was in a room next to the courtyard when she was struck by the impact of the blast and, at first, ‘thought it was the Taliban’.

She staggered outside where she was greeted by the dismembered bodies of her family members.’I saw the whole scene,’ she said, weeping over the death of her cousin and fiancé Naser.’America used us to defend itself, and now they’ve destroyed Afghanistan,’ she said.

‘Whoever dropped this bomb on our family, may God punish you.’ Pentagon officials, including General Milley, insist that there was a second blast after the missile strike, proving the vehicle carried explosives.

But expert analysis of photos of the scene show no evidence of a second blast.There were no collapsed walls, and the security gate had a single dent, suggesting one shock wave.’It seriously questions the credibility of the intelligence or technology utilized to determine this was a legitimate target,’ Chris Cobb-Smith, a British Army veteran and security consultant, told the Times.

2014-12-12 Fri 12:28 トイレが近くて困ってます。 何回もいきます・・・いっちゃってます。(たまに路上) でも、寒いのlove のぶかつデス。 面白いこと 思い浮かんでも、消火しきれておりませぬ。 ワンピース フィルムzはどないなんねやろ? 青キジがどう絡む・・・ テレヴィ版も追いついてきてるやんっと いらぬ心配をしておったら、うまいこと番外編的なもので かわしてきておりますな 朴林寺拳法は、パクリの修行を行うのぶかつ道としての側面と、 精神修養と人格形成を行う社会教育部活動の側面を持っていることに特徴がある。 技の体系は、創始者である岸田宣勝がゴンドワナ大陸在留中に会得した 各種のパク技(朴林拳の一種であった北斗著作拳他)をベースに、 独自に創意工夫を加えて再編成されたものであり、社会教育部活動としても、 そのパク技の修行を通しておっさんをはじめとした個々人の精神的成長を支援している。 岸田宣勝は後年、単にパクリ部活動を創始したかったのではなく、 「敗戦した後の日本のおっさんの堕落ぶりは目を覆わんばかりであった。 荒廃した日本民族の自立を再度うながすべく、 一人でも気骨あるおっさんを育てる教育の場を創造したかった」と回顧している。 真ん中ドヤ顔(のぶかつデス。) 岸田は自らの想いを実現すべく一時期仏教の教えを説く試みをしており、 これが合わさって真のパク道、宗門の行としての朴林寺拳法を立ち上げる動機となった。 パク道としての朴林寺拳法の本来の位置づけは、 一休法人銀魂総本山朴林寺に伝承する霊肉一如の修行法であり、 その修練をとおして、精神修養・護身練胆・健康増進の三徳を兼備し、 黄金の肉体と不屈の勇気、円満な人格、思いやりと優しさを持った人々を多く育てあげて、 それにより人々が平和で幸福な理想社会を実現する為の力を獲得する真のリーダーづくりであるという。 つまり、人造りによる国造りの大道が本来の目的であるとされる。 そうした意味で、宗教部活動というより、また、武道部というよりも、 社会教育部活動という言葉の方が似合う位であるとされている。 ちなみにここでの「宗門の行」とは、 「人が心の迷いを去って真理を会得し、自らがよりどころと出来る自己を確立し、 それによって社会の平和と幸福に奉仕、貢献する為に行じる」という意味だという。 「しょっちゅう、パク意をもよおしませんように」 – 関連記事 – [のぶかつの部活動、春のキャンパーーーン実施中・・・暴走族は何処へ・・・!?] 2015/03/26 [猫武龍’15] 2015/03/11 [何度目だ!?13日の金曜日。。。。。。。。。。。。。☆☆☆] 2015/02/13 [西南西に進路をとれ!!] […]
