    KABUL (AP) — Insurgents have captured an American soldier in eastern Afghanistan, the U.S. military said Thursday.

    Spokeswoman Capt. Elizabeth Mathias said the soldier went missing Tuesday.

    “We are using all of our resources to find him and provide for his safe return,” Mathias said.

    Mathias did not provide details on the soldier, the location where he was captured or the circumstances.

    “We are not providing further details to protect the soldier’s well-being,” she said.

    An Afghan police official said the soldier went missing during the day Tuesday in the Mullakheil area of eastern Paktika province. Gen. Nabi Mullakheil said there is an American base in the area.

    The news broke as thousands of U.S. Marines launched a major anti-Taliban offensive in southern Afghanistan. The missing soldier was not part of that operation.

    Zabiullah Mujaheed, a spokesman for the Taliban, could not confirm that the soldier was with any of their forces. A myriad of insurgent groups operate in eastern Afghanistan, and the Taliban is only one of them.

    My comment: That last sentence is a truth heard rarely in the mainstream media, including AP. It does not fit in with US government war propaganda, but is true nevertheless.
