KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) A senior U.S. military official and Afghan officials say the body of a second U.S. sailor who went missing in a dangerous part of eastern Afghanistan has been recovered.

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to disclose the information, says the family of Petty Officer 3rd Class Jarod Newlove a 25-year-old from the Seattle area has been notified of his death.

There is more here than meets the eye. They are hiding something. My guess is the Taliban rule of engagement differs from ours, and their treatment of prisoners doesn’t mean an air condition cell, 3 meals and a bible. Its the SOS we had to put up with in RVN, we are letting the politicians, (as worthless as they are) to fight the war for the GIs. Its time for the DC elite to go, wake up America!

“There is more here than meets the eye. They are hiding something.”

Yep, agree that “there is more here than meets the eye”. In “my eye” the two most probable scenarios are 1. These two navy guys who were several hundred miles inland were Seals who were out perhaps gathering information and got caught. 2. These two guys who had most surely been thoroughly briefed on the dangers of leaving base by themselves were out and about - let's just say they were “boys being boys” or perhaps “their little heads were thinking for their big heads”. Don't know, just hypothesizing. At any rate, my condolences to their loved ones, family and friends.

Of course we are at war. Casualties are not unexpected. But we can not allow our most precious gifts from God, our American sons and daughters, to be lost in such a terrible waste .

Until otherwise proved, I am sticking with the conclusion these fine Americans were lost as a direct result of the ill defined mission and chaotic command and control from the CIC. To be taken this way, seemingly without a chance to use the skills and tools they were trained to use, is a dirty, dark shame that Obama must wear.

I doubt your first scenario. SEALS or any SpecOps that far away from support do not drive into Indian Country with a large US military vehicle(s) and in full uniform. They insert themselves as locals and do everything they can to appear as tribesman. My contacts in country tell me that right no one leaves the base unless in a convoy and with air and arty support for the area they are going to. It is that bad in most of the country. The Towelaban is very bold right now and has won several key battles. The situation is not good and smells like 1969 Viet Nam all over again.

I think you just defined the entire war completely. Except it would not be CIC it would be TOC. But yes, chaos and ill defined missions I would agree with.

Once again we have to come to terms about who we are dealing with. All wars including Viet Nam, we did carpet bombing and S&D missions. We used incendiaries or what ever we had to kill the enemy.

The current mission orders are to ‘make friends’ with them. Bring them over to our side with niceness and money.

Of course this a big joke to the Arabs who laugh it up every time they get money or supplies from us.

The only ones supporting this crap are the lovey dovey hippies in Washington.

Yeah, agree about my first scenerio. Actually, I listed it merely so to not appear insensitive by going straight to the most probable, that being the second scenerio. Can’t speak to 1969 Vietnam but I can speak to 1965-1966 Vietnam.

The Taliban and Al Quaeda get to kill and mutilate Americans, Brits, Austrailians and Candadians and we are not allowed to fight back. Shameful. Prayers for their grieving families.

You've never been in the Navy, have you??

If you don't know what you're talking about, please don't make insulting, ignorant comments. These men are dead and you're going to impugn their character!!??

I repeat, these heros that die in Afghanistan are being sacrificed by the government is an ill-concieved and executed adventure that they have utterly no intention of winning.

In short, these brave men are dying for absolutely nothing. This is the muslim version of Vietnam, albiet on a much smaller scale, at least so far. This thing could never be on the same scale as Vietnam because our military is just so much smaller now.

In 10 years, nothing will have changed in Afghanistan except for more American blood and treasure flushed down the crapper.

What at waste. Very sad.

The reorts are that these two blew by the gate and left the base. They stopped at the local market to buy some trinkets and were the Taliban ambushed them after they left town. If that is true they were friggin stupid and might as well have committed suicide.

Our rules of engagement have made the Taliban bold. I mean they know that if they are spotted by American troops all they have to do is gointo a village hide their weapons and walk around in plain sight.

Unlike most people I think this war can be won: 1. get the politicians out of the militaries way. 2. Give total control to the commanders on the grouns not to some chairborne officer sitting thousands of miles away. 3. Go into the mountains after the enemy and if fired upon flatten anything and anybody in the way. 4. Keep using drones to strike fer into the Taliban.

Just like Iraq when the civilian casualties get bad enough and the they will turn on the Taliban and Al Queda.
If Karzai don´t like it then pull the troops out and let him deal with the Taliban. Obne thing the generals and the state dept need to remember The Afghans have been through these invasions before, they are double dealing liars and cannot be trusued.

All I can think about right now is President Bush’s face whenever he spoke of one of our troops or sailors being captured or missing. You could see the pain on his face and sense the heaviness in his heart.

But from the Obamas? All I can sense from them is a flat line about our troops. They are more interested in swinging their wrecking ball at Independence Hall, traveling the world, lying about their past, throwing parties and signing the TelePrompTer’s (supposed) birthday card. Sick, sick communists.

The story I know is of the gate guard in Iraq. Everyday a man would come by and give him fresh baked bread. Everyday, and some tea as well.

Eventually, the man suggested that the soldier should come to his house for dinner, and to meet his daughter.

The soldier was never heard from again. That was all she wrote.

Arabs, Muslims, whatever we call them, are trained from 8 years old to be psychopathic killers. They will kill you, or me, or their mother, or their sons and daughters. They will flip out on your ass in a heartbeat into a murderous rage.

What is the common term? Did not know who he was f>>king with. We got to get serious in this thing. We kill them or they kill us. Those are the only two options.

“Unlike most people I think this war can be won”

There is nothing to “win” in a country full of 7th century savages. There are and always will be neanderthals. Your prescription means killing basically the entire population of most of Afghanistan. Not going to happen. You can’t separate out the Taliban guys when they are cut of the same fabric as the civilian goat herders. They are never going to “turn”.

I can’t say what those animals did to our servicemen, but I know what they did to the Russians.

They tortured them, in the most disgusting ways imaginable. They they sawed their heads off.

It would NOT surprise me in the least to learn that they repeated their innate animal brutality on our soldiers.

Worse yet, the country is a post war British experiment. There is no rightful govt and it’s more like five countries made into one....

Altogether different situation.

I agree with Steele, this is Obama’s war...I think Bush and everyone recognized that Iraq was the prize....

You won’t see this @sshole pulling out....

I look to the next president as someone who will fight this war differently.

Not the first that advice has been given for Western troops in Afghanistan.

When you're wounded and left on Afghanistan's plains,
And the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle and blow out your brains
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier.
