Taliban Claims It Beheaded Missing U.S. Commando
The Taliban today claimed it beheaded a missing U.S. commando this morning.
The Taliban said they beheaded a missing U.S. commando in eastern Afghanistan on Saturday, but the Pentagon said it had no information to support the claim.... Taliban spokesman Abdul Latif Hakimi said the U.S. commando was killed at 11 a.m. and his body dumped on a mountain in the eastern province of Kunar, where a four-man Navy SEAL team went missing during a clash with militants June 28.
"We killed him using a knife and chopped off his head," he said by satellite telephone from an undisclosed location.
The U.S. military has said two of the missing commandos were found dead on Monday, having been killed in action, while another had been rescued and one was missing.
