war-on-terrorA total of 14 Americans were killed have been killed after three helicopters crashed in Afghanistan. This has been the deadliest day of the U.S. mission in Afghanistan in more than four years. News of the deaths came as President Obama prepared for the sixth conference to discuss the future of the war with his national security team.

There were 10 Americans killed in the first crash along with seven other troops and three drug enforcement agents.
