What's So 'Jarring' About Video Showing Taliban Fighters Exploring What US Left Behind at Kabul Airport

Taliban fighters have been celebrating America’s departure from Afghanistan and were captured on video checking out a previously U.S.-controlled hangar at the Kabul airport to see what was left behind. 


The video, taken by a reporter who stayed behind, is jarring for several reasons—among them is that the fighters are donned in U.S. military gear.

"We're here right now with the Taliban as they enter … what was only minutes ago … an American-controlled portion of the military airport," said Los Angeles Times foreign correspondent Nabih Bulos. "Now, they've taken over."

Pentagon spokesman John Kirby reportedly said the planes are inoperable.  


Other reporters showed celebratory scenes as well.
