CNN has hit a new low. During “New Day” on CNN on Monday, chief international correspondent Clarissa Ward who was on the ground in Afghanistan gave an interview with Taliban terrorists.
Ward explained that it was “clear” that the Taliban was in “charge” of Afghanistan.
At one point during the interview, the Taliban terrorists chanted “death to America” which ward interpreted as them just being “friendly.”
“As soon as we leave our compound, it’s clear who is now in charge,” Ward stated. “Taliban fighters have flooded the capital. Smiling and victorious, they took this city of 6 million people in a matter of hours — barely firing a shot. This is a sight I honestly thought I would never see: scores of Taliban fighters, and just behind us, the U.S. embassy compound. Some carry American weapons. They tell us they’re here to maintain law and order.”
One of the Taliban commanders told her “everything is under control” and that America needs to “leave” Afghanistan.
“‘Everything is under control. Everything will be fine,’ the commander says. ‘Nobody should worry,’” she reported.
“What’s your message to America right now?” Ward asked.
“‘America already spent enough time in Afghanistan,’” she translated. “‘They need to leave,’ he tells us. ‘They already lost lots of lives and lots of money.’”
CNN also showed a clip of Taliban members holding guns up in the air and chanting.
“They’re just chanting, ‘Death to America,’ but they seem friendly at the same time,” Ward said. “It’s utterly bizarre.”

“Friendly” is definitely not a word to describe Taliban terrorists. According to a new report Taliban terrorists are reportedly conducting door to door searches in Kabul, searching for Afghan government officials, military members, and other allies who worked with the United States.
The Taliban is also searching for journalists even though they promised a “peaceful” transfer of power in Afghanistan despite reports of forced marriages and executions.
“Taliban started door to door search looking for govt officials, former police & security forces members & those who worked for foreign countries NGOs or infrastructures in Afghanistan. At least 3 journalists’ houses were searched in the last hour. Kabul is now becoming deadly,” a Kabul-based journalist tweeted on Monday. “This is a game-changer for us all. Many have started counting their final hours of life in Kabul. Nobody knows what happens next. Pray for us.”
“Taliban fighters going door-to-door in #Kabul, looking for government employees, soldiers and police, and Afghans who worked with foreign govts and NGOs, several residents tell me,” another journalist tweeted. “Some have been taken away, family members say. In other cases, houses have been searched and documents/weapons confiscated. Taliban also recording names/addresses.”
The takeover of Afghanistan is nothing but violent. The Wall Street Journal reports:
But Afghans pouring into Kabul and those still in Taliban-held areas say they have witnessed unprovoked attacks on civilians and executions of captured soldiers. In addition, they say, Taliban commanders have demanded that communities turn over unmarried women to become “wives” for their fighters—a form of sexual violence, human-rights groups say.
The U.S. Embassy in Kabul said Thursday that it had received reports of the Taliban executing members of the Afghan military who had surrendered. “Deeply disturbing & could constitute war crimes,” the embassy said on Twitter.
