Washington Times: ISIS says U.S. warplane shot down, crew killed; Pentagon dismisses claim

The official news agency of the self-styled Islamic State claimed Monday that it forces shot down an American warplane, a claim the U.S. military quickly dismissed.

“The crew of the U.S. warplane that was shot down by Islamic State fighters near Ayn Asad Airbase is dead,” read a statement by the Amaq news agency.

The Islamic State claim did not specify whether the air crew was killed in the crash or captured alive and executed.

However, the U.S. military quickly rebutted the claim as false.

“There is no truth to reports of ISIL downing a U.S. aircraft near Anbar. All U.S. & Coalition aircraft accounted for at this time,” the U.S. Central Command posted on Twitter.

Some site telling that it was actually a helicopter, and showed some picture, but from those pics it's very hard to tell was it really american or Iraqi. But I'm sure it's not F22.
