    The Editors at CNN should watch their wording, "Abducted US Serviceman Killed in Afghanistan" sounds much like it is processed to say that the serviceman was killed AFTER he was abducted. There is enough hot tempers in this situation, shouldn't our 'trusted' news services try to get the point accross without inflaming the same?
