US military confirms plane crash in Afghanistan, denies Taliban shot it down

The US military confirmed on Monday that an E-11A aircraft crashed in Afghanistan’s Ghazni province, but disputed Taliban’s claims to have shot it down. The incident is under investigation, said US military spokesman Col. Sonny Leggett. He did not disclose how many people were on board or if anyone was killed. Local authorities had rushed to the scene in a mountainous area partly controlled by the Taliban. The military aircraft, built by Bombardier Inc, is used to provide communication capabilities in remote locations. Civilian airline Ariana Afghan Airlines denied initial reports that it was the owner of the plane.

    Well done Iran. May many more soon find their way to you. The loss of the Dark Prince and his operations team will definitely be felt by the CIA

    Guess who Iran just took down in the strike on this plane? That’s right… in the plane was Michael D’Andrea. He was, according to Wikipedia, “an officer of the Central Intelligence Agency, that in 2017 was appointed to head the Agency’s Iran Mission Center. He was a major figure in the search for Osama bin Laden, as well as the American drone strike targeted killing campaign.” He was responsible for the killing of Gen. Qasim Suleimaini. Take that Trump!
