Reports of “house-to-house executions” in Afghanistan were confirmed by horrifying audio of distant gunshots as the Taliban assert their control over Kabul and Afghanistan as a whole following Biden’s botched withdrawal which left hundreds of Americans trapped in the country.
An Afghan man who worked with Americans on the ground provided Fox News with the chilling audio featuring distant gunshots.
“I think there’s a conflict between the Taliban, I have no idea where I’m located. From everywhere I hear the sounds of shooting, gunfire. I have no idea how to leave,” the Afghan man said in the audio clip, recorded around the time the final U.S. plane left Kabul. Distant gunshots rang in the background in the sound clip.
These door-to-door executions by Taliban militants are particularly dangerous for remaining Americans and their allies who were ousted after the Biden administration handed the Taliban what can essentially be labeled as a “kill list” with their names and locations on it.
President Biden did not deny a Politico report, confirmed by Fox News, that U.S. officials in Kabul gave the Taliban a list of American citizens, green card holders, and Afghan allies in an effort to grant them entry to the airport which resulted in outrage from military officials behind the scenes.
The president said “there may have been” such a list. “Basically, they just put all those Afghans on a kill list,” one defense official told Politico.
Hours after the departure of U.S. troops, the official Taliban Twitter account celebrated the withdrawal.
“The last American soldier left Kabul airport at 9pm Afghan time tonight and our country gained full independence. Thank God and blessings,” the Taliban account tweeted.
Last Wednesday, a former translator for a high-ranking U.S. Army Ranger reportedly told Fox News the Taliban had started executing allies of the U.S. in public, in provinces away from the media attention of Kabul.
“They are not doing really bad stuff in Kabul right now because there’s a lot of media focus on Kabul, but they already started public execution in other provinces where a lot of media is not available or covering it,” the interpreter said.
With the U.S. military officially out of the country, the Taliban have free reign to unleash the full savagery of their violence on stranded Americans and their allies and it appears they may have already begun the process with these executions.
While the Taliban’s behavior is, frankly, not surprising, Joe Biden and his administration were still somehow perfectly fine leaving hundreds of Americans behind as evacuation efforts came to a grinding halt.
“We did not get everybody out that we wanted to get out,” Marine Corps Gen. Kenneth F. McKenzie Jr., commander of U.S. Central Command, admitted Monday evening.
A senior State Department official told Fox News that a “small number” of Americans remained in Afghanistan, putting the number at “below 250.”
President Biden, meanwhile, has been running and hiding from any off-script questions about the Afghanistan disaster as he still refuses to speak with reporters
