Default No, the Taliban did not hang a man from a U.S. helicopter in Afghanistan

No, the Taliban did not hang a man from a U.S. helicopter in Afghanistan

There you go again!

Quote:
Footage shared on Monday by @Holbornlolz, a popular Twitter user known for spreading disinformation, alleged that the Taliban had tied a noose around an individual’s neck before throwing them from a helicopter.
Quote:
The video quickly racked up more than 2.3 million views and was promoted primarily by right-wing figures, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas.), commentator Ian Miles Cheong, and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas.), many who said the man was an interpreter for the U.S.

“This horrifying image encapsulates Joe Biden’s Afghanistan catastrophe: The Taliban hanging a man from an American Blackhawk helicopter,” Cruz tweeted.
Quote:
While the helicopter does appear to be an American Blackhawk, the claim that the man in the video is an interpreter being hanged appears to have been fabricated.

The video appears to have originated from the Talib Times, a Twitter account that purports to share “official” news from the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. But the original tweet makes no mention of a hanging nor reveals the man’s identity.

“Our Air Force! At this time, the Islamic Emirate’s air force helicopters are flying over Kandahar city and patrolling the city,” the account tweeted.
Quote:
An Afghan journalist claiming to know the pilot, however, said that the helicopter had purposely lowered the man on the rope in an attempt to install a Taliban flag on top of a building.

“Afghan pilot flying this is someone I have known over the years,” Bilal Sarwary wrote. “He was trained in the US and UAE, he confirmed to me that he flew the Blackhawk helicopter. Taliban fighter seen here was trying to install Taliban flag from air but it didn’t work in the end.”

Before you start up your Taliban fan club, at least wait till after Sept 11th and we see what these child-molesting, woman beating murderous Neanderthal thugs have in mind to commemorate the date.

You do recognize there are a lot of Americans and our allies whose fate are in the hands of these savages, right?

Would you be willing to trade places with any American woman in Kabul right now?

I would not defend any part of those Taliban camel f**k**rs for any reason. Why anybody would bother to find anything in their defense is beyond me.

May they all become extinct, and may they all burn in Hell, being each chased for all eternity by 72 virgin male camels.

Well you just put on your boots and go on over there, stud and see if you can make a difference.

Yes, and Afghans including journalists and housewives etc., are new immigrants in the U. S.
What is your problem? There are journalists all over the world and the leaving of a twenty year war is news. hello.
If you were skeptical of FoxNews I could understand, but you pick and choose what to believe if it goes with your political viewpoint.

There's the difference in magas and conspiracy rwer's and the rest of us. You people wouldn't respect your own gramma if you disagreed with her.

But no you seem quite concerned about Afghanistan so don't feel embarrassed you'd never put your own life on that line but ask others to. Go ahead and stay outraged. Good for the blood stream.

Im saying there wasn't enough of it for the agenda politic so some was made up to keep the cult members on a high so that would be the story instead of more critical thinking.
