...nine American soldiers killed in Afghanistan attack...
In a statement earlier, Nato reported that a small American Combat Outpost in Dara-I-Pech district of Kunar province, came under heavy fire at around 0430 local time (0900 GMT).Of course, this isn't the one-sided rout the media would have you believe... but they're not gonna play that up, are they?
It said insurgents had fired "with small arms, machine guns, rocket-propelled grenades and mortars using homes, shops and the mosque in the village of Wanat for cover."
Reports say that dozens of Taleban militants were also killed in the attack. There has been no confirmation of this.*
