Army Brig. Gen. Lewis Boone, director of public affairs for the U.S.-led coalition and American forces in Afghanistan, called the shooting spree a “terrible and horrendous act,” but said the U.S. military could not jeopardize the case by disclosing details of the investigation.
“I cannot over emphasize enough how important it is in the U.S. judicial system that the facts of the case, the evidence and the circumstances are safeguarded to ensure proper judicial process,” Boone said. “Whether you are an Afghan or an American, I think you’ll agree that the most important thing at the end of the day is that justice be done.”
In Washington, Afghanistan’s ambassador to the United States said Sunday that he believes the alleged shooter will be brought to justice.
