* The strike on August 29 was aimed at taking out an ISIS fighter 

* A bombshell report reveals that the the CIA issued a warning that children may be at the scene of the strike in Kabul just seconds before the missile hit the car 

* Reports also emerged indicating that the driver of the targeted vehicle was a longtime employee at a U.S. humanitarian organization 

* ‘This particular strike certainly was a terrible mistake and we certainly regret that,’ head of Central Command, General Frank McKenzie, said Friday 

* President Joe Biden is also calling for a ‘thorough’ probe of the botched strike 

The Pentagon named on Tuesday the Air Force inspector general to review the investigation that found the U.S.’s August 29 drone strike killed 10 innocent Afghan civilians, including seven children – and not an Islamic State fighter.
