UPDATE: Whoa! This story made it big in the old blogosphere. Lots of links at Taliban Story An Obamination!
Troops grabbing weapons in a pinch during a fight is nothing new, and I’ve even heard that some guys use AKs or PPSh submachine guns for particular things. But I guess I’ve never heard of US troops needing to use captured weapons simply because the US Army isn’t supplying them with US weapons.
Oh, and a platoon was split up between Iraq and Afghanistan. I guess it’s possible for some specialized units, but I didn’t think that platoons were divided. Maybe I’m wrong. And platoons aren’t commanded by Captains.
