It’s so confusing. They’re telling me to stay out of the way to not horn up the men, just like our friendly fascists back home. Yet, they’re chanting “Death to America” like the home-grown communists we’ve all come to know and love. – Clarissa Ward’s terrified sub conscious probably.
CNN’s Chief International Correspondent Clarissa Ward described a group of Taliban fighters as “friendly” whilst they chanted “Death to America” on the streets of Kabul.
During a news package on Monday, the reporter interviewed a number of insurgents and Afghanistan citizens following the fall of the capital and at one stage, described the situation as “utterly bizarre”.
“They’re just chanting ‘Death to America’, but they seem friendly at the same time. It’s utterly bizarre,” she told viewers.
Ward also noted later in the package that her “presence” on the streets was creating “tension”, because she’s a woman.
