he Taliban is claiming that it shot down a Black Hawk helicopter in southern Afghanistan, causing it to crash and kill seven U.S. troops and four Afghans. The Thursday crash marked another deadly day for the U.S. in Afghanistan, less than a week after six American service members were gunned down, "apparently by two members of the Afghan security forces they were training to take over the fight against the insurgency as international combat troops prepare to exit the country by the end of 2014." NATO is still investigating the cause of the crash.
