Video of the Taliban piloting a Black Hawk after the US exit goes viral on the internet.
A shocking video of the Taliban piloting a Black Hawk after the US exit has gone viral on the internet. A body is seen dangling from the US military chopper that flew over Kandahar in the Taliban-controlled Afghanistan. The chilling video posted on social media by several journalists was extracted from ‘Talib Times’, a profile on Twitter that claims to be the official account of Islamic Emirate Afghanistan. The 12-second video showed the Taliban flying over Kandahar and patrolling the city.
The video surfaced on the internet hours after the last U.S. military transport aircraft left Afghanistan shattering hopes of up to 200 Americans and several hundreds of desperate Afghans amid the crisis. Sharing the video on Twitter, the Taliban captioned the post, “Our Air Force! At this time, the Islamic Emirate’s air force helicopters are flying over Kandahar city and patrolling the city.” However, there was no mention of the body hanging from the US Black Hawk.
Republican Senator Ted Cruz shared the video and said it summed up President Joe Biden’s failure in Afghanistan. “This horrifying image encapsulates Joe Biden’s Afghanistan catastrophe: The Taliban hanging a man from an American Blackhawk helicopter.” Moreover, it is yet unknown whose body the Taliban hanged to scare the netizens of Afghanistan.
Those who watched the horrifying video posted on the official Twitter handle of the Taliban are upset and worried about the people left behind under the rule of the terrorist group. “The Islamic Republic of Afghanistan’s Air Force. You haven’t bought even a blade since u came to power. Don’t brag about other people’s achievements. What u are enjoying now is the result of 20 years of suffering of people who worked hard to make Afghanistan are better place,” wrote a Twitter user.

Meanwhile, many others did wonder if the body hanging from the Black Hawk was a dummy or if some was being lowered to safety. On Tuesday, celebratory gunfire resounded across the Taliban controlled-Kabul following the withdrawal of the last 6000 U.S. troops that marked the end of a 20-year war.
