Denying that the Taliban were responsible tallies well with reality. I'm not aware of them having any heavier anti-aircraft weaponry than the infamous US-supplied Stingers, and Stinger missiles are VERY limited in what they can take out. They're only good for short ranges and low altitudes, so helicopters, jets taking off or landing.
Its possible that they took it down, but it wpuld have to be VERY low to be taken down by an antique Stinger.

The Stingers they had from the 80s won't work now.

Shelf life of the propellant/warhead?
Not exactly, the FIM-92 launch system requires a device known as a battery coolant unit which provides both power and coolant to the missile prior to firing for the purposes of target acquisition and to cool the electronics to operating temperature. These fragile units are self-contained and are inserted into the pistol grip of the launcher, and contain both liquid argon and a thermal battery. As such, the shelf-life of these devices is limited, and while not impossible that usable units remain in the Taliban's possession, it is highly improbable.

As above, and not to mention that these 30+ year old missiles will unlikely be stored correctly, and as not a single one has been used or attempted to be used against coalition forces since 2002, its even more improbable that they have any that function, even if they could get around the problem of powering them.

The Taliban has fired anti-aircraft missiles, like Stingers or SA-7 Strela or others, possibly supplied by Iran.
