The Air Force used the latest meme to promote a strike this week in Afghanistan, where military planes attempted to prevent the fall of Farah city in an assault from Taliban forces, which it said "eliminated" 28 enemy combatants.

By Thursday afternoon, the tweet was replaced with an apology.

The original tweet linked to a report about the deployment of A-10 Warthog attack aircraft over western Afghanistan to fight off Taliban forces besieging the city of Farah.

The Taliban has claimed that it has taken control of the city, but the USA and Afghan governments deny that.

The audio he's referring to is a short clip that sparked a social media debate about whether the word being heard is "yanny" or "laurel".

"We apologize for the earlier tweet regarding the A-10", posted the Air Force on Twitter hours after the initial attempt at virality. In a statement, USA officials said the A-10s did the job, as the officials said the Taliban's attempted raid was "unsuccessful".

'It was made in poor taste and we are addressing it internally.

At a news conference Thursday, Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said that she had not seen the Air Force's tweet, but that it "shouldn't be forgotten in any of this" that Afghans are "dying to secure their own future".
