U.S. military plane crashes in Kyrgyzstan

An American military refueling plane took off and crashed in Kyrgyzstan on Friday, Kyrgyz and U.S. officials said.

Three people were on board, said Bolot Sharshenaliev of the Kyrgyz Emergencies Ministry. A ministry spokeswoman had previously said there were five. The U.S. military didn't give the number of those on the plane and said "the status of the crew is unknown."

The plane was a U.S. Air Force KC-135 tanker aircraft, according to the U.S. 376th Air Expeditionary Wing Public Affairs Transit Center at Manas, near Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. The crew and aircraft are assigned to the transit center.

    A sad reflection on CNN, bloggers have to resort to stale threads finding no updates or news on TJI.

      That's because Criminal News Network would rather not reoort anything rather than tell you what's really going on. They finally admit that there is a war inside America on Christian values. Liberals, gays, deviants, bigots and other forms of hateful people have pushed Christians in the closet while telling gays to come on out and labeling Christians as bigots for following God's word that the gay lifestyle is unnacceptable.

    And @ saywhat isnt it ironic that shortly after Israel makes those claims that Syria is using chemicals that they, themselves start firng rockets into Syria? Sounds like it was a planned effort on Israels part doesnt it?

    @ chrissy , from the beginning it was clear who the forces were behind the Syrian 'implosion'.
    But whenever i tried to draw attention of fellow bloggers to that reality i was generally scoffed at.

    My worry & that should be ours, is that the crazed leadership in that country would drag US with them to tumble down the pit.

    We have let ourselves in a position where we cannot refuse to toe their line or they would turn on us too. Yes sir, the power we made them capable of has turned the heads of the regime in Tel Aviv.
