    Missing Soldier Appears in Video

    Hey all. This is just following up on this. This captured soldier Pentagon has now confirmed it is him. Captured by the Taliban in Afg. Terrible situation, wish and hope for the best for him. Wishing the best for his family and loved ones.

    Thank you for posting this. I was curious and very concerned when I first read this story. I really hope we can get him out safely, and back home to us asap.

    I hope the very best for his safe return. Not a good situation to be in at all.

    We need to start executing all captured Tallies, until he's returned. Burn the bodies. That'll send a clear message.

    It was said that he walked off base without his weapon or body armor. Some say he walked away with three Afghans.

    He says he was captured as he lagged behind on a patrol.

    Sounds fishy to me. As though he was trying to surrender or something.

    I can certainly agree with the tactics of threatening the Afgan people, unless this soldier is repatriated. Do you?

    Not unless you don't care if he is killed. His safety is already compromised by our treatment of Afghan detainees.

    Who said anything about Afghan detainees?

    But, since you brought it up, his life is no more danger now than it would otherwise be.

    So let me get this straight. To fight the war on terror, you want to resort to....terrorism. Interesting.
