U.S. attempt to rescue hostages in Afghanistan fails
The rescue mission occurred just a few days after American Kevin King and Australian Timothy Weeks were kidnapped from their vehicle in Kabul. WASHINGTON, D.C. -- A Seal Team 6 attempt to rescue two American University professors held hostage in Afghanistan was unsuccessful, reports say. The rescue mission occurred just a few days after American Kevin King and Australian Timothy Weeks were kidnapped from their vehicle in Kabul, USA Today reports. Seven enemy fighters were killed in a firefight during the rescue mission, but King and Weeks were not at the location targeted by the rescuers. CNN reports rescuers were never certain the professors were at the site, while the New York Times reports they may have missed them by just a few hours. No U.S. forces were injured. Fox News reports an earlier attempt to rescue the hostages was aborted because the White House was unsure about the intelligence. The mission was approved a day later by President Obama. "They turned back that first night because they didn't have authority. They could have gone without permission if they thought hostages' lives were in imminent danger," an unidentified defense official tells Fox News.
