Taliban: All You White People Look Alike!
Yesterday the Taliban announced they had captured two Americans when an ANA helicopter was forced to land in territory they controlled.
Yeah, about that:
Moldova’s interior minister on Wednesday said that three citizens were on a helicopter ambushed by Taliban insurgents in northwestern Afghanistan.Not American, which is good ... but still a bummer for the two Moldovans who are apparently being held captive by the Taliban.
The interior minister, Oleg Balan, said in Chisinau that two Moldovan pilots and a flight engineer were operating the helicopter, which he said belonged to a Moldovan company doing a U.N. peacekeeping mission.
Afghan officials said the privately contracted helicopter, which was carrying military personnel, made an emergency landing Tuesday in a Taliban-controlled region of the Faryab province after suffering a technical problem.
Shocking News! CAIR Victim Arrested For Attempting to Join ISIS
Famous last words come back to haunt Saadiq Long, "If the U.S. government wanted me to question or arrest or prosecute me, they could have had me in a minute."
A military veteran and Oklahoma native who became the face against “Islamophobia” in 2013 faces charges after he was recently arrested along the Turkish-Syrian border.We accept your invitation Mr. Long. Please have a seat, someone will be attending to you shortly.
Officials said the Muslim man, Saadiq Long, 45, was attempting to join ISIS.
Well maybe not shortly, whatever.

The New America! Offensive Bibles!
You know what’s also bad manners? Being such an insufferable douchebag that the mere sight of a Bible causes a meltdown.Guests seeking a Bible at Northern Illinois University‘s campus hotel now must call the front desk after a secular group complained that the sacred scripture had no place in the nightstand.Sigh.......
Out: Moderate Muslims
In: Jihadi John Beautiful, Kind and Humble
Despite allegedly banning journalists Mona Eltahawy, London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) is proudly hosting Asim Qureshi of the Salafist ‘human rights’ group CAGE tonight at an event called “Islamophobia and British values”.So wonder what CAGE has been up to. It seems they are all aflutter at the prospects for funding after a recent court ruling.
Mr. Qureshi has personally described the ISIS executioner Jihadi John as a “beautiful”, “kind” and “humble” man.
Liberal Muslim Ms. Eltahawy is unpopular with many conservative Muslims after writing books such as Headscarves and Hymens: Why the Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution and speaking out against sexual violence in the Islamic world and the rise of the Muslim Brotherhood in her native Egypt

It's Worse: Two US Soldiers Allegedly Captured by Taliban -- UPDATE: US Denies, but might be American Contractors
The Taliban in Afghanistan reportedly captured 13 Afghan soldiers in Faryab province on the border of Turkmenistan Tuesday after a helicopter crash, Reuters reported. Three soldiers were killed in the crash, police said. The helicopter could have also been carrying U.S. military personnel.The Taliban are claiming that two US soldiers made it out alive and are now in their custody:
They are also showing the body of a man they claim is a dead US soldier. The body in question, though, appears to be that of ANA, not American. That's according to someone on Twitter who responded to the image. Either way, that one I'm not posting.
They also claim they shot down the helicopter. It's not clear why the helicopter crashed, what is clear is that the photo they are tweeting with the statement is a photoshop. A bad one.
You'll notice that I removed the name of the person tweeting. Why? REASONS.
UPDATE: It looks like there were no American military on board, and maybe even no Americans -- NYT:
But American officials said there were no American citizens aboard the aircraft. Officials said that they were looking into the possibility that an American company was operating the aircraft under contract with the Afghan Army but that they could not confirm whether that was the case.So let's hope that the Taliban jumped the gun on this and misidentified those captured. Worst case is that these are US contractors.
Col. Michael T. Lawhorn, a spokesman for United States forces in Afghanistan, said that although he was aware of reports of an aircraft crash, “we have no reports at this time of any Americans being on board.”
The good news is that the Taliban aren't ISIS. If Americans are on board, they won't kill them, they'll hold out for ransom. Yeah, I know, not really "good news", but it's better than some of the alternatives.
