Not forgotten !!!!


This still image provided on Tuesday by IntelCenter shows the Taliban associated video production group Manba al-Jihad December 7, 2010 release of someone that appears to be US soldier Bowe Bergdahl (L), who has been held hostage by the Taliban since his disappearance from his unit on June 30, 2009. Also with him in this clip appears to be Taliban commander Maulawi Sangin (R). He had contacted the media on July 16, 2009 and threatened to kill Bergdahl but has not been seen in a video with him before. This footage appears next to previously released footage, however, this video contains a non-cropped version of the previously released footage that has never been seen. The footage of Bergdahl in this video is brief and not the focus of the release unlike the past three hostage videos which featured him.

A sniper checks his scope after firing a round to confirm if he hit his target. The sniper was a participant in the 2010 USASOC Sniper Competition at Fort Bragg. "I think one extremely important thing I will take away from this competition is what equipment works and what doesn't," said Sgt. 1st Class Sidney Abbott, a sniper in 3rd Special Forces Group. "It helps to see who's using what and how the have it set up."

A Special Forces sniper engages a target during the night stress event at the 2010 USASOC Sniper Competition at Fort Bragg.
