The IHFFC was actually created in 1991 to investigate violations of international humanitarian law but has never been activated. Dr Joanne Liu, president of Doctors Without Borders, says "the tool exists, and it is time it is activated."

Please sign the petition created by Doctors Without Borders, calling for the US and the Obama administration to consent to the International Humanitarian Fact-Finding Commission investigation. IHFFC is the only permanent body set up specifically to investigate violations of international humanitarian law, as this article revealed. This reprehensible action by the U.S. is not acceptable! For the petition:

Petition - Tell President Obama to Consent to Independent Investigation of Kunduz Hospital Bombing!

Signed. This is not the first time that the U S forces have been accused of military blunders & I suppose it won't be the last.

Petition signed.
Did everyone forget that Afghanistan is the graveyard of many other countries.....Russia is the most recent. I suppose the U.S. is next, since Obama broke his promise of getting out. And, we can afford nothing for American citizens as long as we continue to waste billions of our tax dollars on this folly. Why aren't the Republicans screaming about this Money Pit?

Thanks everyone. Marie, this was not human error. The U.S. was notified days in advance of the co-ordinates of this hospital. An investigation would indeed be needed to establish the truth of what happened even if it was an error. They can't just blow off actions this grave.

You're right Lois, Afghanistan has been called the Graveyard of Empires since Alexander the Great. The Soviet Union bankrupted themselves trying to conquer this country and it looks like we are trying to follow suit!

This incident was so serious that it just goes to show how immune we have all become to such actions.It is an utter disgrace,bombing civilians and the honorable doctors without borders how dare they call it collateral damage.It was probably done on purpose.Why I do not know, but considering the technology used in these infernal machines it is highly unlikely that they targeted the wrong place. It is very worrying when people and professional doctors (who give their services gratis) are called collateral damage what has our world and governments come to? United Nations where are you? Sitting on your arses on FAT salaries ,USELESS as usual.
