Taliban: All You White People Look Alike!

Yesterday the Taliban announced they had captured two Americans when an ANA helicopter was forced to land in territory they controlled.

Yeah, about that:

Moldova’s interior minister on Wednesday said that three citizens were on a helicopter ambushed by Taliban insurgents in northwestern Afghanistan.

The interior minister, Oleg Balan, said in Chisinau that two Moldovan pilots and a flight engineer were operating the helicopter, which he said belonged to a Moldovan company doing a U.N. peacekeeping mission.

Afghan officials said the privately contracted helicopter, which was carrying military personnel, made an emergency landing Tuesday in a Taliban-controlled region of the Faryab province after suffering a technical problem.

Not American, which is good ... but still a bummer for the two Moldovans who are apparently being held captive by the Taliban.
