provided protein nutrition to starving Aghan kids.



On Friday night, September 17, U.S. officials acknowledged he did not appear to be connected to ISIS-K terrorists. His fatal mistake, it appeared, was driving a white 1996 Toyota Corolla similar to one intelligence sources claimed was being driven by a known terrorist.



Speaking to the Washington Post, Ahmadi's 24-year-old stepson Samim Ahmadi said that 'the situation in Afghanistan is not good'.



He added: 'Whether in America or another country, we want peace and comfort for our remaining years.
