KABUL, Afghanistan A top Taliban military commander described as a close associate of Usama bin Laden and Taliban leader Mullah Omar
was killed in an airstrike this week close to the border with Pakistan,
the U.S. military said Saturday. A Taliban spokesman denied the claim.

Mullah Akhtar Mohammad Osmani was killed Tuesday by a U.S. airstrike while traveling by vehicle in a deserted area in the southern province of Helmand, the U.S. military said. Two associates also were killed, it said.

There was no immediate confirmation from Afghan officials or visual proof
offered to support the claim. A U.S. spokesman said “various sources”
were used to confirm Osmani’s identity.

Keep up the good work fellas!

Don’t forget the troops are still doing their duty on Christmas.

Thank you to all Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines.
