Kunduz Bombing Affair German Colonel Wanted to 'Destroy' Insurgents

In his report on the controversial air strike in Kunduz on Sept. 4, German Colonel Georg Klein says he gave the order to attack because he wanted to "destroy" two hijacked fuel trucks as well as insurgents surrounding them. Klein's report is a key document in the parliamentary inquiry into the matter, which is putting pressure on the German government.
German Colonel Georg Klein's two-page report is expected to play a major role in a parliamentary probe into the bombing of civilians during a Sept. 4 air strike against the Taliban in Afghanistan.
