Good Afternoon, I'm Kimberly McBroom.
The Pentagon confirms at least six Americans were killed and several others wounded when their helicopter came under enemy fire and went down.
There was also a small arms fire on the ground after the chopper crash.
It's the first U-S aircraft brought down by enemy fire in the war.
And it happened during the largest ground assault in Afghanistan, so far.
More than a thousand U-S troops are helping to go after suspected Taliban and al-Qaida fighters who are in hiding.

I assure you that if a gang of teenagers came to my house after dark and started banging on the doors and windows, I would shoot more than one. Mr. Jamison should be released from jail immediately and given a medal."
From Bland (Bonnie Blankenship): "Regarding the arrest and possible charge of murder of the 82-year-old man, I think this is an outrage. The teenagers should have been off the streets at 11pm instead of harassing an old man who was minding his business. I feel he had every right to have the firearm and use it teenager or not. If someone was beating on my door and windows at this time of night or any other time with no apparent reason for being there, I would probably have done the same thing...When the people who have worked their entire life to have a safe, secure home have no more rights to protect it and live in peace something has happened to our law."
