Giant of Kandahar

The Giant of Kandahar was an enormous humanoid creature allegedly encountered and killed by a group of American soldiers on a mountainside in Afghanistan.

Description

Said to have stood around thirteen feet in height and weighing in excess of a thousand pounds, the Giant of Kandahar had a shock of bright red hair and a beard of the same colour. It had six digits on each hand and foot, a double row of teeth, dressed in ragged animal skins and wielded an enormous spear.

History

After a routine patrol of US infantrymen went missing somewhere outside of the city of Kandahar in 2002, a squad of Special Forces operatives were dispatched to search for them. Coming across a mountainside cave, the soldiers found piles of cracked human bones and shattered military equipment.

While they were investigating the debris, the Giant erupted from the cave mouth and speared one of the soldiers, killing him instantly. The remaining men were subsequently able to kill the beast with massed gunfire, although they had great difficulty in doing so.

In the aftermath, the body of the Giant was whisked off by an unknown agency by helicopter. It’s current whereabouts are unknown.

Nature

The Giant of Kandahar has been speculated by some to have been one of the biblical Nephilim, as it possessed several of the traits commonly associated with these beings, such as red hair, six fingers and a dual row of teeth.

Did U.S. Special Forces Kill a Giant in Kandahar?

Several conspiracy theory-oriented web sites are claiming a Biblical giant with flaming red hair was killed by U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan.

Claim

United States Special Forces killed a giant in Kandahar in 2002, and the government is trying to cover it up.

Rating

False

Origin

In the summer of 2016, several personalities and web sites dedicated to discussing supernatural myths and conspiracy theories began claiming that an American Special Forces soldier serving in Kandahar, Afghanistan, was killed in 2002 by a 1,100-pound, blade-wielding, 12-foot-tall giant from Old Testament times before the giant himself was taken down by the military.

A Department of Defense spokesman told us they have no record of such an incident:

We do not have any record or information about a special forces member killed by a giant in Kandahar.

Current interest in the story appears to have been generated from a video created by L.A. Marzulli, an author, blogger and filmmaker determined to link modern times with biblical creatures and prophecies. On 13 August 2016, he posted an episode on YouTube of his series, Watchers, in which he claims to interview a military contractor or soldier who witnessed the blade-wielding “Giant of Kandahar” kill another soldier before being downed by troops, whisked away by a transport aircraft and hidden away from public view.

Marzulli makes the case that the giant was a Nephilim, which were described in the Book of Genesis as offspring of gods and human women who inhabited Canaan at the time of Israelite conquest. But when it comes down to details, he’s vague, saying he interviewed the unnamed man at an “undisclosed location” on an unknown date. The interviewee who he claims shot and killed the giant, doesn’t give any details on the location of the alleged incident, other than to say it was a “remote” location in Afghanistan in 2002. He claims he and others were sent in to look for a missing patrol when they saw a scarlet-haired giant emerge from a cave and skewer his friend, who he called “Dan,” with a large blade.

If the Army’s statement isn’t sufficient, the only service member with the first name Dan or Daniel who died in Kandahar in 2002 was killed — along with three others — in an accident involving the clearing and disposal of explosives. There are no incidents on the Department of Defense press release page, in which all military casualties were listed, involving a giant. Likewise, there are no reports of an entire patrol disappearing in Afghanistan.

Marzulli’s video about the alleged giant incident, replete with a growling animation, can be seen here:
