in response to reader comment: The truth is in the facts

Bukhari collected over 600,000 thousand hadith, and compiled only over 7000 as true Hadiths,

The compilation was based on the chain of narrators, their authenticity, trustorthy narrators and being of unbroken links.

The first compiler was Abu Hanifah who was born in in 699 and met many of the Prophet companions and the children of the companions (a companion - those who met the Prophet and spoke with him)

The wife of the prophet Aiysha survived after the prophet 42 years, she was a reference on all topics of Islamic laws and jurisdiction

Anas bin Malik lived until 712 AD and so many of the great compillers such as Abu Hanifah Al-Nu'man

the link never broken between the early muslims and the great compilers such as Bukhari and Muslim

the Hadith after the one you mentioned is as follows

Narrated 'Abdullãh During some of the çIjazawat 2 of the Prophet , a woman was found killed. Allah's Messenger disapproved the killing of women and children - Al-Bukhari Book 52 Volume 4 Hadith 4014 Chapter 147
