MC-12 Crash Claims Three Lives

An airplane crash occurred in the eastern region of Afghanistan. Three people, all of them Americans, died in the crash which was said to be due to internal faults in the plane engine. Two of the three people on board who lost their lives were ISAF service members and one of them was a civilian. 

The NATO spokesperson said that it was a nocturnal mission and as for the plane it was an MC-12 that was meant for reconnaissance purposes. While defense officials have denied any role played in this catastrophe by the enemy, their tarnished credibility makes this claim a dubious one. Already the doubts are beginning to emerge. The problem is that on the same day, they also acknowledged that a previous helicopter casualty was caused by rivals. 

It seems the plane crash has whipped up quite a storm that is becoming more and more difficult to handle by the top brass. 

The fact that the region is known for its suicide bombings and extreme violence, especially against the United States and its allies, has led to some speculation. There is a remote possibility that the hand of the Taliban lies behind the crash. Whatever one might say, the crash remains a mystery and opens up a Pandora’s Box of contradictory questions
