Captured in kabul
A story about special forces serving in Afghanistan. special forces engage Al Qaeda and the taliban in Afghanistan on a daily basis.
One of the most interesting special forces short story's told this year author Tommy Winters tells of a lucky escape in Afghanistan from what would have been certain death by al qaeda and the taliban under the direction of Mansur al Harbi Al Qaeda number 2.
An Afghan mission that went so terribly wrong leaving three special forces men dead in a decimated bomb blasted house on the outskirts of Kabul Afghanistan and a fourth man captured moved and held captive in Jalalabad Afghanistan, near the Pakistan border.
To this day the mission has been de-nighed by the allied forces stating only three special forces commandos were killed during heavy fighting.
No mention of a fourth being captured and rescued within 72 hrs of the failed operation or the escape of Mansur al Harbi. A senior al Qaeda leader who trained militants in Afghanistan.
