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.

      Well we got the Obama admin threatening folks with retaliation if they speak the truth of the Benghazi incident. Now it turns out that the Obama admin doctored what they told the public in order to stop the chilling truth of how they went to bed that night knowing that Americans are going to die. Now don't hate on me for telling u facts. CNN is not reporting this for some odd reason...

    @ Pete, the next time you get frustrated dealing with the gerbel remember this. Challenges are what makes life interesting. Overcomming them is what makes life meaningful!

    The Rat and the Hamsta

    A drunk walks up to a barkeeper one day and says, "If I show you a trick will you give me a free drink?" The Barkeep says "Depends on how good of a trick it is."

    The Drunk reaches into his pocket and pulls out a hamsta and places him behind the piano. The hamsta starts to play the sweetest jazz riff the barkeeper has ever heard. He pours the drunk his drink.

    The drunk, after killing his drink says, "If I show you another trick can I have another free one?" The barkeep says "If it is anything like that last one, you can drink free all night."The drunk reaches into his other pocket, pulls out a rat, sets it on top of the piano, and the rat starts scatting along with the hamsta."

    Impressed, the barkeeper starts to pour drinks as fast as the drunk can drink 'em. After several hours, a big time Hollywood agent walks in, sees the act and franticaly asks the barkeeper who it belongs to. The barkeeper points tothe drunk who is passed out on the floor.

    The agent wakes him up and says, "I will give you 1 Million dollars for that act." The drunks says "not for sale". The agent says, "Ok, 100 grand for just the scating rat."The drunk say, "deal" The agent writes the check and leaves with the rat.

    The barkeeper looks at the drunk and says, "Are you nuts? You had a Million dollar act that you just broke up for a whimpy 100 g's?"

    The Drunk says, "Relax, the hamsta is a ventriloquist"
