Prime minister: Hostage may have been killed by U.S. grenade

A British aid worker who died during an operation to rescue her from kidnappers in Afghanistan may have been killed by a grenade thrown by American forces trying to free her, British Prime Minister David Cameron said Monday.

    Why would any one use a grenade to save and separate the hostage from their captors????They did not mention a flash grenade, so I must take it as a frag. I must say it sounds like some thing else may have happened here. Just does not make sense for the SF to screw up like this. I know I have worked with them many times and they are very good at doing this type of op.

    Even if they find the soldier responsable for this incident,I find it quite dubious that they'll ever punish him. They always protect their own.

        If you're going to usurp my name,at least drop the filthy Tea Party lingo,will you? I don't mind having my name hijacked so much as the use of that Tea Party lingo being blogged under it.

      If the flash bang accidentally lands in your lap it will kill (if you don't know what a flash bang is , go stab yourself with the handle of a butter knife)
