11 confirmed dead in US transport plane crash in Afghanistan
C-130 Hercules airplane. © U.S. Air Force / Reuters An American C-130 transport plane has crashed in Afghanistan, killing at least 11 people, a US defense official has said. Among the dead are several US troop members and contracted civilians whose nationalities have not been disclosed.

The Taliban has claimed responsibility for shooting down the C-130, according to AFP. However, this information has not yet been confirmed, and US authorities previously denied any hostile engagement.

“Our mujahideen have shot down a four-engine US aircraft in Jalalabad,” AFP cited Taliban spokesman Zabihullah Mujahid as saying. “Based on credible information, 15 invading forces and a number of puppet troops were killed.”

Six US service members and five civilian contractors on board died in the crash, according to a US military spokesman, who did not rule out the possibility of more casualties on the ground.

At the same time, NBC reported that the plane crash claimed the lives of 12 people, including five US servicemen, five contractors, and two Afghani civilians.

A coalition spokesperson US Army Col. Brian Tribus has said the plane crashed shortly after midnight local time (3:30 p.m. ET) at Jalalabad Airport.

"Cause of the crash and status of crew and others onboard remains unknown," Tribus said, according to NBC News. "We are gathering more information and will release as appropriate."

“[We're] not releasing nationalities of contracted civilians at this time,” Col. Tribus said.

A four-engine turboprop aircraft, the C-130 Hercules is usually used to transport personnel and cargo.

Pentagon sources have ruled out the possibility that the C-130 which crashed was shot down, while the 455th Air Expeditionary Wing at Bagram Airfield described the crash as “an accident.”

The official cause of the C-130 crash has not yet been determined, but officials said that there had been no reports of enemy fire at the time of the incident.

The United States Air Force operates a base at the Jalalabad airport that is located about 3 miles (4.8 km) southeast of the city of Jalalabad.

Under a deal between the US and Afghanistan, there were 9,800 American troops remaining in Afghanistan for the Resolute Support mission up until the end of September. In March it was agreed that troop levels would drop to 5,500 for the remainder of the year and most of 2016.

Officially launched on January 1, 2015, the Resolute Support mission replaced NATO-led ISAF forces after 12 years of operations. The mission, which officially expired on Wednesday, involved a total of 13,223 troops from 40 contributing nations.

Nobody knows why we're there, and the longer we stay the more we lose.

Is Trump trying to protect the Bush/Obama/Wacko Bird McCain legacy, or what?

Bring the troops home, give out tax rebates! (3 images)

“Truth is treason in the empire of lies.” - Ron Paul

Government is in the last resort the employment of armed men, of policemen, gendarmes, soldiers, prison guards, and hangmen.
The essential feature of government is the enforcement of its decrees by beating, killing, and imprisoning.
Those who are asking for more government interference are asking ultimately for more compulsion and less freedom.

I think it has to do with isolating Iran and then crushing the radical moslems from power. They believe Iran has been supporting all the radical moslems in weak states.

I would love to leave that area. Now that we are oil self sufficient most the reason for being there is gone. Let the commies waste manpower and money on radical nut cases.

Saudi Arabia is the real culprit there.

Because they would turn against our guys and kill them.

They would be like a dog and ever time you go to leave attacks you from the back. So if you hate our guys then let’s be stupid and destroy their livelihood before we leave.

" So if you hate our guys "

I don't. That is why I want to get them out, NOW !!

In reality, keep them there if you hate our guys.

Pull our guys out, NOW !! Then send back cruise missles, or B-52 strikes, and destroy the fields.

I see no reason to wait !!
