OK, it's not an actual conspiracy theory...

It's not a conspiracy theory --

This is more a possible scenario about the bombing of the Medecins sans Frontieres  (Doctors Without Borders) hospital in Kunduz aka "if it was an accident, we will acknowledge it..."  (IF?!?) 

Just putting a few facts together.

First of all, what the MSF spokesman said the day after -- "Now Kunduz, a city of 300,000  has no hospital."  (And of course, MSF hospitals are totally non-partisan -- you're sick, you're wounded, you're fucked up -- you're going to get medical care.)

Then, there has been a back-and-forth with the Taliban there. Including some being treated, and some visiting their own wounded, but they respected the neutrality of the hospital, none of the Taliban even confronting any Afghan security forces taken to the hospital.

And then, remember, the Air Force Academy has been notorious in the past few years for throwing down with absolutist Jihad Christianity, demanding obedience to the particular muscular Christianity interpretation of God that was being taught along with button-pushing and handling flight suit zippers and practicing how to speak in "Right Stuff" even tones.

And so ... 

what if, some super-religious AC-130U gunship Death-from-Above pilot figured it out -- "If there's no hospital there, the Taliban can't get medical care. And the rest of them are fucking Muslims, anyway, so... and even if they rebuild the hospitals, they're not gonna have any raghead-loving doctors to run it." (Yeah I know -- super-religious and raining death on people on the ground -- seems a bit incongruous, but wottehell boss, it happens).

Paranoid conspiracy theory?
Or, as they say in Law and Order: "an alternate theory of the crime?"  

It's just that when General Campbell keeps weasel-wording one story after another, it seems like, as my Azerbaijan grandfather used to translate the only Russian language phrase he knew: "If it smelled any more like shit, even the flies won't touch it."

They have to come up with Something -- something new.   (Former Defense Secty MacNamara already burned down the "Fog of War" defense to cover up the crimes in Vietnam.)

Intentional or not, this monstrosity is a horrifying as if a bunch of Marines raped Mother Teresa in Beirut in years gone by when she drove a van into the city to evacuate the children left behind in an orphanage when the people in charge fled in panic at the shelling going on. 
And as if they said: "Well look at how she was dressed. She was asking for it, all covered up like that. Can't blame us --how could we know she was a nun? We thought she was just another raghead babe."

MSF has asked for an independent investigation, and as difficult as it may be for us, it would be good for our country, both domestically and internationally, to allow the
International Humanitarian Fact-Finding Commission to do an investigation for Geneva Convention violations, e.g. crimes against humanity.

President Obama personally promised Dr. Liu, President of MSF, a Pentagon investigation as well as NATO and Afghan investigations.

Dr. Liu thanked him and repeated her request for an independent investigation by the
International Humanitarian Fact-Finding Commission.

My mental faculties remained in suspended animation while I obeyed the orders of the higher-ups. This is typical with everyone in the military.
