I jut heard on the radio that the Taliban (not sure) claim to have shot down a US helicopter in Afghanistan near the border to Uzbekistan (sp?). No American official confirmation yet.
Is it true, did you hear anything?

There are about three different versions going around depending on what station you are listening too.
Version one.....A unmaned recon aircraft was shot down
Version two.....A helicopter belonging to the northern Alliance was shot down. Those are the Afgans fighting the Taliban
Version three....The whole story is false.
And the one you said.
The pentagon isn't commenting, stating they aren't going to respond to every news release the Taliban come up with.
Based on that respose I tend to believe that it was either two or one that happened.
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.

Talibans are simply laying none of the chopers wasn't send because it's crazy to send a choper over a hostile territory risking to get shot talibans certainly have some stingers ,iglas djigit or something like that, and finally what's good could we get of sending a apache or cobra over there?
