On Friday afternoon, the Pentagon conceded a horrific addition to the President’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan. An August 29th drone strike that was touted as killing ISIS terrorists actually killed ten civilians, including seven children. But while the networks initially covered this latest debacle over the weekend, ABC and CBS quickly moved on. Mondays are usually a time when the networks offer a reset for viewers who weren’t paying attention on Saturday and Sunday.

Now they're admitting it was a tragic mistake. What's the fallout look like for the administration?” Here’s Raddatz’s full answer: Notice she never says the word “Biden.”
