Operation Khanjar, or 'Strike of the Sword'
Made popular 2071 days ago in
Insurgents captured an American soldier in eastern Afghanistan, according to a U.S. military spokeswoman.
Capt. Elizabeth Mathias said the soldier has been missing since Tuesday and that the military was using "all our resources to find him and provide for his safe return."
The soldier wasn't taking part in the major military operation launched in the southern Taliban stronghold of the Helmand River Valley. The new operation is an early test of the Obama administration's new strategy for beating back the resurgent Taliban and stabilizing the country in advance of this summer's presidential elections.
Operation Khanjar, or "strike of the sword," began shortly after 1 a.m. local time when close to 4,000 Marines, backed by about 700 Afghan security personnel, moved by air and ground into villages in Helmand, a major opium-producing region.
