The body of the missing U.S. Navy SEAL commando that went missing in Afghanistan last month has been found, according to a Pentagon official. The
Taliban had claimed that he was captured and killed by terrorist rebels, but U.S. officials say that is impossible judging by the remains. This find
represents the last of the four missing SEALs to be found -- only one was able to be rescued alive.
KABUL (Reuters) - The body of a U.S. commando, the last of a group of four who went missing in Afghanistan last month, has been found and recovered,
CNN reported, quoting a senior U.S. defense official.
The Navy SEAL commando was killed in a shoot-out with insurgents and there was "no way" he had been held in captivity, contrary to claims by Taliban
guerrillas, the report on the CNN Web site quoted the senior official as saying on Sunday.
Taliban spokesman Abdul Latif Hakimi had said the missing commando was captured by the guerrillas in the eastern province of Kunar last month and
beheaded on Saturday.

It's a shame that we weren't able to find him alive, but at least recovering the body will bring closure to the family. It's good that it appears
he never was in captivity and beheaded like the Taliban had claimed.
