Biden supports probing Kabul incident - WH

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki remarked on Monday that United States President Joe Biden supports efforts to "have a thorough investigation" into what his country's military described as accidental killing of civilians in Kabul back in August.

Psaki failed to comment if anyone will be held directly accountable for the incident but maintained the administration's goal is to be as "transparent as possible" when it comes to the probe. She stressed the need to understand the circumstances the attack happened and that the US will continue to respond to the threat the Islamic State represents.

Earlier this month, the US military admitted it conducted an attack on "ISIS-K [the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant – Khorasan Province] extremists" on August 29 that killed civilians.
