As President Obama spent a leisurely Saturday playing golf with GOP Speaker John Boehner, U.S.-led NATO forces killed nine Libyan civilians — including two toddlers.
NATO said it was “very sorry” if that were the case.
Wing Commander Mike Bracken said:
“NATO is looking into this matter. NATO was operating in Tripoli last night, conducting air strikes against a legitimate military target.”
Earlier in the day, journalists had been shown the bodies of five people, one of them a woman and two of them toddlers.
Libyan state officials called the attack a “sign of brutality of the West.”
