CNN reporter says Taliban chanting ‘Death to America’ also 'seem friendly' at the same time

This is a CNN reporter who is located just outside of the Kabul embassy. She says the people there are chanting "Death to America" - but that they seem friendly at the same time and it is "utterly bizarre."

This might remind people of the time reporters were saying protesters were mostly peaceful as there were fires in the background amid the chaos.

The people chanting that might be friendly to her at the time, but how long will that last and how friendly are people who are chanting death to an entire country?

IJR reported:

CNN Chief International Correspondent Clarissa Ward was reporting Monday on life inside Afghanistan’s capitalof Kabul following the Taliban’s sweeping offensive over the last week.

CNN’s report out of Afghanistan came only one day after Taliban forces were able to sweep into Kabul and take control of the presidential palace, which the existing government — led by President Ashraf Ghani — fled as the Taliban encircled the city.

“This is a sight I honestly thought I would never see,” Ward said as she stood in from of a group of armed Taliban soldiers.

“Scores of Taliban fighters and, just behind us, the U.S. embassy compound.”

Ward then interviewed the commander of the small group, who asserted that “everything is under control” and that “everything will be fine,” while warning America that “they need to leave” and noting that “they already lost lots of lives and lots of money.”

The reporter then said that citizens came up to the soldiers to pose for photographs, before the video cut to the group chanting “Allahu Akbar” in unison outside the embassy.
