    Something isn't right with either of those stories. You don't just happen to wander off of a base in Afghanistan and you don't just lag behind alone on a patrol.

    what Jester said, imagine what hes going through. what his family is going through. This upsets me greatly, Damn punjabi fucknuts all deserve to die. I dont see what we ever did to them. but then again, people spread rumors about the government. but still, it shouldnt be to the point where they hold people hostage. Fucking bullshit if you ask me.

    I think the taliban taking american soldiers as hostanges and POW's is bullshit. Dont understand why they cant come out and fight like men instead of hiding and setting damn IED's everywhere.

    Now your sounding like them, when they capture somebody they ask questions and demand answers that only our leaders could and basically blame the average joe. So when we think all of them then were blaming the average joe or the average Muhammad. But the guys in the Taliban, we should find them but question their leaders not their "privates". I get tired of both sides asking the wrong people these loaded questions. No offense but like a jack a$$ homeschooler in the public system to the teacher. The questions don't necessarily deal with them except that they are an american and an american soldier. They ask about problems that are out of their hands. My Prayers with him and his family

    Hate the War. Not the Soldier

    If you all only knew what this guy did. He left his base with a canteen and a knife. he was a afghan supporter. no lie no BS look up his unit and if you go into it find out who he worked with and ask them. fuck that guy. we tried looking for him many of times. i do not feel sorry for him and i do feel sorry for his family and everyone else that is suffering because he is a jackass. he should not be in the same thoughts and prayers as the rest of the american soldiers or POW's.

    Err maybe because we would rape them like we were a catholic priest, what do you think? Let’s be realistic here…. We are most advances armed forced in the world going against monkeys from the Stone Age. Do you really expect anyone to fight like a “man”?

    and back up that comment???? look at the facts he was on a secure base in Afghanistan....how did he get to the enemy? he left or snuck out in the night to meet up in the local village and sympathize with the enemy. the guy was nuts and left his unit. in a war zone he left them. there is a lot to this story and there is only so much i can say just know it is bullcrap that americans the work their butts off and others that defend this nation one feel sorry for him and two had to try and look for this kid many many nights. everything you hear one the news is made into a nice story for the american people to pass judgment without having all the facts alli am saying is that there is a lot more to this than what you know and this guy is a jackass. i do pray for his family and friends because they are going through rough times right now.

    if what you say is true, then i agree and i say we just leave him. but without a way to back up your story there's no way i can believe or not believe what you say. this is the internet after all and just cause someone says something doesn't make it true.

    im not trying to sell my point and i cannot say where i work but lets just say i know a guy...that has gone out looking for this jackass a few times and were un successful due to intel and this guy i know...has more information he cannot discuss opsec reasons. however it is a shame he is in their hands but it was his choice to leave the secure base. and american soldiers went out numerous times...more than i can count on 2 hands looking for him. so this guy i know is pissed about the situation because they were going out looking for him wasting tax dollars and risking their lives for him....his own choice. Now dont get me wrong i wish he was found so the guys that had him could get split in half by some well aimed shots and a few less bad guys to worry about. however like i said before its a shame people do not know everything due to opsec.
