The Obama administration says the war strategy in Afghanistan remains intact despite the civilian killings. At the White House on Monday, Press Secretary Jay Carney called it a "tragic" event, but insisted President Obama remains committed to a policy of training Afghans to take responsibility for their country’s security.

Jay Carney said: "As tragic as these events are, the strategy is focused on disrupting, dismantling and defeating al-Qaida, stabilising Afghanistan so that Afghan security forces can take responsibility for security of their own country, which would allow us to continue to draw down our forces and that is the strategy and the policy that the President is implementing."
