    Anyone know where to find it? It's not some crazy one w/ muslim prayers but apparently they interview him and its all in English. I really want to see it.

    thats terrible :(
     
  4. That has got to be terrifying. I hope I have one in the chamber left if I ever get even close to being captured.

    Can someone give me the cliffs on how he got captured?

    Apparently he went outside the wire with no gear or anything. He was then picked up.

    Other sources claim he was drunk (most likely BS).

    I can't find a vid on liveleak or any other source.

    I read something about him being falling behind on a patrol. :dunno:
     
  8. At least, it's good news that his family knows he's alive. :sadwavey:

    True. I read somewhere he was captured near the Pakistan border. If that's true, they probably took him into Pakistan where we will never get him back.
     
  10. That region is so very screwed up, but, maybe, that would give us some kind of right and mission to go into Pakistan. I don't know how that would work, but it's what we really need to, at the same time, better search for Bin Laden.

    Looks like I thought wrong and he might still be in Afghanistan.

    There is also a few clips from the video at this link:

    I cannot even imagine what he and his family are going through. I read the group that captured him is known for beheadings. I pray that we find him, what a horrible situation.
     
  12. There's no end.

    The Haqqani Network 'purchased' him from a smaller group, they are one of the more violent groups who operate on both sides of the border, they are NOT Taliban and unfortunately they are relatively well trained and equipped.

    The official story on this sounds like utter bs though and I've read like 3 different versions.

    about the best i could find... appears to be HUGE censorship on this video...

    notice, when he is talking he is not looking at the camera really... but when he states the "message to his people" he appears to be reading the statement.

    How much effort will the US put towards "hunting them down?" I do not see this ending well.

    404 code of conduct not found

    as stated in that other thread he should be saying just name and rank, SSN, etc.


    having said that I'm sure they told him to say these things or else its the rusty knife for you


    and im sure they were not kidding

    oh im sure... as for his violating the code of conduct, he has done so in a way that made it obvious it was NOT his true thoughts, by reading the statement, or at least letting it be very obvious he was being coerced, he really hasnt done too much wrong.

    i hope he is rescued.
