Oh Crap

I hope this isn't true:

The Pentagon is looking into claims that two US troops - one a woman - have been captured by Islamic forces in Iraq.

A Lebanese TV station reported that the group, calling itself Fukat al-Madina al-Munawara, or Medina Faction, had captured the pair during a shootout.

LBCI showed what it said was photocopies of the soldiers' military identity cards.

The pair were named as Katherine Rose and Andrew Peters but the claim has not been verified.

At least one accounted for... good news.

...both accounted for.
