Photos of American military equipment, identification cards and weapons appear to have been seized by ISIS militants in Afghanistan, though how they attained these items remains unclear.

Saturday, photos were released on social media after recent combat engagements which depict not only images of ammunition, a rocket launcher and communication equipment but a close up shot of U.S. Army Specialist Ryan Jay Larson’s ID as well.

‘Amaq posted photos of documents and gear of soldiers allegedly taken by ISIS fighters in

Larson was not captured by ISIS.

“Obviously, SPC Larson is not captured – he is accounted for and with his unit despite having lost his ID card and possibly some of his equipment during recent operations,” Brigadier General Charlie Cleveland told Fox News. “Beyond that, there is a lot of equipment in those pictures.

“At this point, we don’t know if all of the equipment in the pictures was lost during recent operations or at some other time in the past.”

Defense Department spokesperson, Henrietta Levin, stated that they have no idea when the photos were taken or how they came into the equipment but assured Americans that no military personnel have been captured, according to Military Times.

“We are aware of erroneous reports that U.S. Army Specialist Ryan Jay Larson was captured by ISIL in Afghanistan,” Levin said, referring to one the Islamic State group’s other monikers. “These reports are false. He has been accounted for and remains in a duty status within his unit. We are looking into how he lost possession of his ID but can confirm he has been accounted for with his unit. ‎”

Defense Secretary Ash Carter confirmed that was the same location were almost 150 “heroic” Army Rangers were in heavy combat and took out “hundreds” of ISIS fighters.

Some of the equipment may have been left behind during this operation. Cleveland stated, however, that the lost equipment was not due to a “hasty” extraction.

How the items were left behind or lost is still being worked out by officials.

  1. This sure looks like another Staged Photo OP to further the Agenda. Setting up all the PROPS to make it APPEAR as what they want it to LOOK LIKE to those they want to continue to keep the wool over their eyes.

    A whole different story from what’s reported.

    At some point we need to take this more seriously and yes even be afraid, fear alerts us to immediate danger to our survival… True it is the goal of Terrorism and we have been living, defeated, by terror and political correctness has keep us from acting on the onslaught of destruction.

    HILLARY CLINTON CLAIMS TO BE A “CHAMPION FOR WOMEN”, BUT LOOK WHAT SHE DID TO THIS 12 YEAR OLD GIRL, IN 1975…….THIS WOMEN IS NOW IN HER 50’S!

    JUANITA BROADDRICK WAS RAPED BY THEN ARKANSAS ATTORNEY GENERAL BILL CLINTON………….WHEN JUANITA BROADDRICK TOLD HILLARY CLINTON ABOUT THE RAPE, HILLARY CLINTON TOLD JUANITA BROADDRICK TO KEEP HER MOUTH SHUT!

    As Hillary Clinton pursues a return to the White House, this time as president, she is facing attacks from presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and his supporters over the numerous sexual misconduct allegations her husband has faced. President Bill Clinton has been accused of sexual assault by two women, Juanita Broaddrick and Kathleen Willey. At least eight other women have accused Bill Clinton of sexually harassing them or making unwanted sexual advances toward them, with the allegations dating back to the 1970s.

  4. Interesting Kimosabe, not clear to me if soldiers have been captured or not. Will look around. If Hillary should by some act of Satin be elected, this will go on during her term. Elect Trump and ISIS will be crushed.

  5. Hmm…on this Larson person…I would have him bought in to answer questions. Just saying. What is the military teaching these men and women—loose their id’s and equipment…something doesn’t sound right to me. Just saying.

    We watched Trump’s speech and thought he did well. smiles

    • Yes, something smells VRRY fishy if you ask me… We have ‘lost’ millions in equipment to them! Ugh! I wasn’t able to catch Trumps speech but it is taped. Glad to know it went well! 👍😊

  6. “At this point, we don’t know if all of the equipment in the pictures was lost during recent operations or at some other time in the past.” Scary! I worry about the safety of our armed forces as well as our own. You know, I would venture to say that this was done on Hillary Clinton’s watch. I have no proof but I’ll betchya dollars-to-donuts that her staff either sold this info or lost it through their ineptness. Nothing evil that woman or her followers has done or will do will surprise me anymore. Guess you heard that it was one of her ‘lost’ e-mails that got that poor Iranian scientist murdered/executed? She’s wicked.
    And I’m listening to Trump’s live speech in Detroit right now. I think he’s gonna be a dandy President. He’ll need a good Senate and House too. So stay vigilant fellow Patriots and help good people win local elections too. They’re just as important as to who represents us in the Oval Office.
    May the LORD bless and keep you.

    • It IS scary Sparky! Although this particular set of military equipment was very recently seized, equipment from past confiscations have left ISIS well stocked. I have no doubt where that blame lies, perhaps this recent loss as well.

    • COULD IT BE, that some of the 100s of millions in armament is due to the Obama/Clinton/Muslim Brotherhood operations put in place since the “Arab Spring” Libya, Operations (both overt and covert)? What we are finding, is just a tip of the ISISberg…
