Will HRW and AI charge the US for war crimes

A probe confirms deaths due to American airstrikes in Afghanistan:

Afghan officials have estimated up to 147 people died in the battle in the western province of Farah on Monday.

U.S. coalition blamed Taliban militants Saturday for causing what Afghan officials say are dozens of civilian deaths during a prolonged battle that included American airstrikes. The U.S. said an unspecified number of civilians died but did not take responsibility for any deaths.  Why not?

Secretary of State Hilary Rodham Clinton who tells that she is concerned about civilians in Sri Lanka has come under heavy fire from newspapers around the globe for simply saying sorry and doing nothing else after Americans killed of over 100 Afghan civilians including children.

Saudi Arabia’s leading newspaper The Arab News Said in an editorial, “stop killing and start caring about ordinary Afghans. Slaughtering them and then apologizing is contemptible.”
Aren’t civilians everywhere considered equal?

Will Human Rights Watch based in NY and Amnesty International based in London crucify us Americans for this?

What about war crimes? (Hope we get a free pass!)
