Taliban strikes. 14 people, including 6 US military killed as US C-130 Hercules military transport shot down in Afghanistan

The US Middle East adventure started under George W. Bush and his neocon clan is unravelling right before our eyes. While the world may be fixated on Syria, Afghanistan is dissolving into chaos once again.

Via Sputnik News Agency…

The plane, which crashed early Friday morning just after midnight local time, was carrying six US crew members and five contractors. All of them died in the crash along with three Afghan locals on the ground, ABC said.

Earlier reports said that 12 people — five American servicemen, five contractors and two Afghan civilians were killed in the crash.

A US Department of Defense official told Sputnik that the status of all C-130 passengers and crew members was being verified and further information gathering was required.
