Clarissa Ward, A CNN reporter described the Talibans are bizarrely friendly.
Well, that’s good to say for the day but the following day, the Talibans nearly “Pistol Whipped” her crew! I guess her definition of being friendly is abnormal, at all.
On her clear statement, she is now reporting a whole different tune after what happened is her crew were “ambushed” by the Taliban militants and her producer was near “Pistol-whipped.”
It was confirmed by The Post Millennial that CNN’s Clarissa Ward defined the Talibans as “Friendly” on live mayhem she is covering via tweet.

Well, I guess we can’t just say they are friendly until they don’t do something to us, right? I mean, it’s not okay to call bloodthirsty terrorists who slaughter innocent people every day are not ass “friendly” as CNN thought they were. Who knows?
Even Rep Andy Biggs posted a very funny tweet comparison that really makes sense though,
Americans without masks
CNN: “ENEMIES OF THE PEOPLE”
Taliban chanting death to America
CNN: “but they seem friendly…” https://t.co/rcqsILi59P

It was also reported by The Washington Post that a case in point came Monday, amid the fall of Kabul when top conservative figures and media outlets sought to distort the words of a CNN reporter accurately summarizing the situation from the streets of the Afghan capital. They tried to turn it into something amounting to a corporate-media endorsement of the Taliban.
At issue is a report that ran Monday from CNN’s Clarissa Ward. In it, Ward noted the discordant scenes she was witnessing:
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. Everything is under control. Everything will be fine, the commander says. Nobody should worry.
What’s your message to America right now? America already spent enough time in Afghanistan. They need to leave, he tells us. They already lost lots of lives and lots of money.
People come up to them to pose for photographs. They’re just chanting death to America, but they seem friendly at the same time. It’s utterly bizarre.
What are your thoughts about this?
