Obama in Afghanistan- $40,000 for the lost lives of 15 people?

‘U.S. commanders on Tuesday traveled to a poor Afghan village and distributed $40,000 to relatives of 15 people killed in a U.S. raid, including a known militant commander. The Americans also apologized for any civilians killed in the operation.’ See the Associate Press report US pays $40,000 after 15 Afghans die in raid for their entire report on the ‘collateral damage’.

Question is, is this how Obama thinks he can wins hearts and minds in Afghanistan? If not, then why is he moving more US troops to occupy that country? Why does he continue to use the US military to bomb civilian areas? This is nothing more than a continuation of Bush’s military policy.
