Afghanistan Clashes Leave Six Enemy Dead, Three Americans Wounded
American Forces Press Service
WASHINGTON, Aug. 10, 2005 – Six enemy combatants were killed and three U.S. servicemembers and an Afghan interpreter were wounded in eastern Afghanistan Aug. 9, military officials reported.
The injured were evacuated to medical facilities at nearby U.S. bases and were reported to be in stable condition.
Afghan and U.S. forces in Paktika province were conducting offensive operations near Wazikwa to defeat and disrupt enemy activity. The Afghan and U.S. patrol made contact with enemy forces near Wazikwa, and the enemy fled shortly afterward toward a nearby cave complex. The patrol pursued them, killing one. The three U.S. soldiers and interpreter were wounded during the fight, officials said.
Several hours later during pursuit operations, the same Afghan and U.S. patrol came into contact with additional enemy forces, killing five enemy fighters.
"The combination of Afghan and U.S. forces are having great success against the enemy in Afghanistan," said U.S. Army Lt. Col. Jerry O'Hara, Combined Joint Task Force 76 spokesman. "We will continue to aggressively seek the enemy out until there are no safe havens left for them in Afghanistan."

I'm sure we'll be reading these same stories 20 years from now as we have been since Viet Nam. And the other side will be writng similar stories. It's all propaganda and pure D BS, IMO.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JOtab0BKOGY

I'm not sure why these are being posted. IMO, they're just random crap filling up the Community Forum.The difficulty is to try and teach the multitude that something can be true and untrue at the same time. -- Arthur Schopenhauer
