If true, this is an evil way to influence public opinion. There is no way of knowing at this juncture whether the investigation into the air strike is accurate. The evidence points to intentional murder of 100 civilians at the hands of ISIS through luring an airstrike on a booby-trapped building. There is no reasoning with an organization that plans and conducts warfare at its ugliest. ISIS believes in scorched earth, winning at all costs and never letting moral scruples get in the way. Warfare might be diplomacy in another means but in this case, diplomatic solutions have been replaced by an urgent need to crush the terror organization out of existence. It won't be easy and a final resolution might never be achieved. ISIS might well continue to exist, but at a lower level of influence and with many fewer attacks on civilians and soldiers.
