BAGRAM, Afghanistan, Dec. 21 (UPI) -- A U.S. soldier who was part of a unit fired on in eastern Afghanistan was killed Saturday. The "tragic death" was not necessarily part of any new offensive by al Qaida or a resurgent Taliban, Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Richard Myers told reporters at Bagram Air Base, in a news conference on CNN.
