Second Missing Soldier Found Dead in Afghanistan

July 29, 2010

Navy Seals on a training drill(Chattahbox) – The Pentagon has confirmed that the second U.S. Navy sailor who went missing in Afghanistan is dead.  The two men went missing last week while traveling through the Taliban-controlled province of Logar.

After the body of petty officer Justin McNeley was found, Taliban claimed to have captured the second officer, thought to be Lt Col Todd Breasseale.  They had previously said he was in a safe place where the U.S. could not find him.  It is not yet known whether they were bluffing, or whether the officer died after they made that claim.

The Pentagon plans on releasing a special announcement about the death later.
