The Taliban has gone on the attack in Afghanistan, and there are American casualties.

FOX's Rachel Sutherland reports from Washington:

One U.S. special operations fighter was killed and another was wounded in a battle with the Taliban in the Helmand province.

A defense official also confirms to FOX News that a third soldier,who is not special ops,was also hurt. It's believed that soldier was from a U.S. military medevac helicopter that sustained damage as it tried to reach the wounded, when mortars landed nearby... That helicopter is now on the ground.
