Pentagon Releases Names of US Soldiers Killed in Pakistan

Rebel Reports is a high-value information source operated by accomplished journalist and author Jeremy Scahill.

Excerpt--The Department of Defense has confirmed what we reported Thursday in The Nation: the US soldiers killed Wednesday in northwest Pakistan were “white” Special Operations Forces (see here for an explanation). I spoke to a knowledgeable US military source today who told me that it is likely that the men were doing precisely what the DoD says they were: training Pakistani security forces from the Frontier Corps for offensive operations in a very dangerous area of the country. All of the men were based out of Fort Bragg, North Carolina and one of them was with the 4th Psychological Operations Group.
