Biden Addresses Fatal Drone Strike on U.S. Forces in Syria During Canada Trip

President Biden made his first trip to Canada as commander-in-chief to meet with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. However, his opening statements during the meeting were focused on a recent tragedy that occurred in Syria - a fatal drone attack on U.S. forces.

In his address, President Biden expressed deep condolences for the loss of life and noted that he had directed the Department of Defense to conduct a full review of what happened.

"I take responsibility for what happened," he said. "We're going to do everything we can to make sure it doesn't happen again."

CBS News Washington correspondent Christina Ruffini analyzed the president's comments and provided insight into the ongoing situation in Syria.

"The drone strike was reportedly carried out by U.S.-led coalition forces targeting ISIS-K militants," Ruffini reported. "However, it resulted in civilian casualties and killed 10 Afghan civilians, including seven children."

Ruffini also noted that this was not an isolated incident, as there have been numerous reports of civilian casualties resulting from U.S.-led airstrikes in both Iraq and Syria over the past several years.

"The question now is how will this impact America's relationship with its allies and partners in the region?" she questioned.

As President Biden continues his visit with Prime Minister Trudeau, many are eager to see how he plans to address this tragic event moving forward.
