Two U.S. soldiers were missing and feared captured or killed by the Taliban, military and Afghan officials said. And five other U.S. service members were killed by improvised explosive devices, which now pose a greater threat to life and limb for Western troops than at any point in the nine-year war.


Seems 2 US soldiers have been captured by Taliban.


U.S. and NATO officials confirmed that two American Navy personnel went missing Friday in the eastern province of Logar, after an armored sports utility vehicle was seen driving into a Taliban-held area. Afghan officials believe one was killed and the other captured when they apparently took a wrong turn and ended up in a dangerous area of Logar.


So Afghanistan is still a dangerous place more than ever after 9 years of war. I hope the captured soldier comes safely instead of in form of beheading video at theync.

I always cringe when i here that a solider has been captured by the Taliban, I have read about some of their old “techniques” and it was not a pleasant experience. I just hope and pray they get these this guy back.
