    "Islamic State militants captured a Jordanian pilot after his plane went down during airstrikes by the U.S.-led coalition against the group on Wednesday in northeastern Syria.

    The U.S. denied claims that Islamic State fighters shot the plane down. The Raqqa Media Center, which is sanctioned by Islamic State, said the pilot ejected after militants attacked his jet with antiaircraft guns near the city of Raqqa—the capital of a province by the same name that is the seat of Islamic State’s self-proclaimed caliphate.

    “Evidence clearly indicates that ISIL did not down the aircraft as the terrorist organization is claiming,” the U.S. military’s Central Command said.

    The U.S. believes that a mechanical problem is the most likely cause of the crash, but the investigation is continuing, according to officials.

    Both the U.S. and Jordanian governments have special operations teams in the region to help rescue pilots. But officials said there were early indications that the pilot didn't have a chance to try to evade militants on the ground.

    “We would have gone in and picked him up. Those capabilities are in place. But there was very little time,” a coalition official said.

    U.S. officials said they were extremely worried about the pilot’s fate.

    “This is tragic. This is horrible,” said the U.S. defense official. “All of us are very familiar with ISIL’s barbarity.”

    Sadly, no. They said they just didn't have enough time to go in and get him. Shame.

    Maybe it was in James Bond movies but I think I'd want a suicide pill for instances like this. Seeing the white y shirt only makes me think he's a civilized man amidst a pack of animals.

    With AWACS and JSTARS and such you'd think they'd have a package set up to properly deal with this eventuality. Loitering slow flyers with long endurance waiting out of range, a couple of rescue copters, a platoon for area defence, etc.

    Maybe Jordanian lives don't matter.

    "You know Robin, just this morning I was thinking about writing a note to a Jordanian pilot apologizing for all the horrible things I've said all those years when Beth came in and I told her what I was doing and she asked me if I saw the news..."
