Taliban capture US military dog

No troops left behind. Time for a rescue mission. Looks like there are plenty of Taliban around who need taken care of.
Check it out:

The Taliban claim to have captured a dog belonging to US troops during fighting in eastern Afghanistan last December.

They released footage featuring the dog, apparently called “Colonel”.

The militant group said the dog was wearing a harness with a GPS tracking device, a torch and small camera.

US officials said they were investigating the claim. Correspondents say the incident is likely to be an embarrassment to them.

Looking rather mournful, on a lead being held by a long-haired Taliban fighter, the small reddish-brown dog was paraded for a Taliban cameraman, reports the BBC’s David Loyn in Kabul.
