CNN’s Kenosha moment in Afghanistan

By Leah Barkoukis, Townhall

It was déjà vu for those watching CNN’s “New Day” on Monday as the network’s chief international correspondent Clarissa Ward reported on the deteriorating situation in Kabul, Afghanistan.

While the scene and situation were entirely different from the “fiery but mostly peaceful” protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last August, the network’s description of the events taking place were quite similar.

“As soon as we leave our compound, it’s clear who is now in charge,” Ward said in her report. “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.”

She then translated an interview with a Taliban commander telling her “everything is under control” and “will be fine.”

“What’s your message to America right now?” she asked.

“‘America already spent enough time in Afghanistan,’” he told her. “‘They need to leave,’ he tells us. ‘They already lost lots of lives and lots of money.’”

As scenes of Taliban members holding up weapons and chanting appears on screen, Ward notes that they’re chanting “‘Death to America, but they seem friendly at the same time.”

“It’s utterly bizarre,” she added.

  • How delusional CCCnn (utterly bizarre) they are and how stupid is she for being there in the 5th C AD world.
