The Taliban claims to have shutdown a US CIA plane over Afghanistan killing everyone aboard, videos circulating seem to show US insignia on the fuselage of a burning plane. As The Daily Mail reports:
Zabihullah Mujahid, a spokesman for the militant group, said that high-ranking officers were among the dead after the aircraft was brought down in Dih Yak district around 1.10pm local time.
The US military has said it is investigating the crash, as an official confirmed to Fox News that a surveillance plane had come down with ‘less than five on board’.
The official did not says how the plane crashed, who was on board, or whether there are thought to be survivors.
Footage taken by journalist Tariq Ghazniwal shows the burning remains of a jet lying in the snow as several people stand around filming.
The claim that the plane was in fact being operated by the CIA has not yet been confirmed by US authorities. But if it were true, it likely wouldn’t be publicized.
A passenger plane went down in Afghanistan. The Taliban claims it was a U.S. Air Force jet with high ranking CIA and military officials on board. Purported video of the wreck surfaced online and seems to back the claim. pic.twitter.com/YGdhrZDplr

THE JET WAS A COMPUTER IN THE SKY FOR SPECIAL MISSIONS
We should level the country
Well, that should end any conversations with the Taliban. I think this is a good thing, because they have never been straight with anyone. Remember, the Muslims can lie all they want as long as it promotes their agenda. I wish we would treat the Taliban the same way we treated ISIS.
I do not believe this aircratf was shot down but rather came down due to mechanical problems. this type of aircraft look to me like learjet two small jet engine from the midsixty l would a say a gulf aircratf. normally a plane that been shoot down do not look like that almost intact
