NATO chopper crashes in Afghanistan killing 6 US soldiers
Why am I hearing about this on Facebook and not a single thread here??
GLP you be slippin

"KABUL - Six U.S. soldiers serving with the NATO International Security Assistance Force were killed when their Sikorsky UH-60 'Black Hawk' helicopter crashed in southern Afghanistan Tuesday, officials said.
The cause of the crash is under investigation, NATO said in a statement, but a senior U.S. defense official said the aircraft had a hard landing due to mechanical problems and was attacked by militants after it went down."

Re: NATO chopper crashes in Afghanistan killing 6 US soldiers
Seems to be conflicting reports. Some news outlets are calling it an airplane crash..?

"Six Americans have been killed in a plane crash in southern Afghanistan, Fox News confirms.

The service members were part of the International Security Assistance Force.

NATO says there is currently no fighting in the area.

"The cause of the crash is under investigation, however initial reporting indicates there was no enemy activity in the area at the time," a NATO statement said.

Deputy governor of southern Zabul province, Mohammad Jan Rasoolyar, says a NATO helicopter crashed in the remote district of Shajau."

"Kabul Six soldiers from the US-led NATO mission fighting Taliban insurgents in Afghanistan were killed in a helicopter crash on Tuesday, with NATO officials saying it was not a suspected militant strike.
However the Taliban immediately claimed responsibility for the deaths, using their main Twitter account to report that their fighters had shot down a US helicopter in the province of Zabul."

"The Taliban Twitter account, under the name Abdulqahar Balkhi, said the helicopter was shot down on Tuesday afternoon while flying low over the district of Shah Joy in Zabul.
"(The) chopper crashed in (a) ball of flame... killing all 8 invaders aboard," the account said.
The Taliban regularly make unsubstantiated claims of attacks on NATO and Afghan forces and also exaggerate casualty numbers in proven strikes."

Something about the Taliban using Twitter just rubs me as kinda odd..?

Obama probably will call this one another "LUCKY" hit. If you are an American, it would be an "unlucky" crash.....

He probably tweeted the Taliban with their location. Fucker.
