United States guilty of war crimes?

In a swift response, the Pentagon said there are at the moment three inquiries into the airstrike, one by the Defense Department, one involving both the United States and Afghanistan, and one by NATO. Pentagon officials however  did not deny that the airstrike on Saturday morning could have cause heavy casualties.
