A video of a man dangling from a Black Hawk in Afghanistan went viral Monday. Many suspected it was an execution. Others even claimed the man was an interpreter or American citizen. However, an Afghan journalist put all rumors to rest, saying it was a living Taliban fighter attempting to hoist the Taliban flag.
Bilal Sarwary is a respected Afghan journalist who is fortunate enough to live outside the country. “Afghan pilot flying this is someone I have known over the years,” Sarwary tweeted Tuesday. “He was trained in the US and UAE, he confirmed to me that he flew the Blackhawk helicopter. Taliban fighter seen here was trying to install Taliban flag from air but it didn’t work in the end.”
As a result, Twitter began flagging the video posted by others with the warning “this media is presented out of context.”
Yet the presence of U.S. military-grade weapons has lead to deadly consequences in other instances. Sarwary tweeted reports of these weapons being exchanged between the Taliban and fighters in Gulabahar just north of Kabul. “Reports of casualties [and] fatalities on both sides,” Sarwary tweeted. “At least 4 fighters from opposition from Gulbahar killed in one location, multiple sources in Gulbahar tells me.”
According to reports, the military left a number of machinery and weaponry. Over 64,000 machine guns, 350,000 assault rifles and 126,000 pistols fell to the hands of the Taliban. Not to mention the over 22,000 humvees, 50,000 trucks, 160 tanks and more.

Darrell Brooks found guilty on 76 charges in Waukesha Christmas Parade murders
Six people died and at least another 61 people were injured when a red Ford Escape SUV driven by Darrell Brooks drove through a holiday parade on November 21, 2021. Almost a year later, after a long and intense dramatic legal battle, Brooks has been found guilty.
40 year old Brooks defended himself in court after killing his victims who ranged in age from 8 to 81. It took Waukesha County Circuit Judge Jennifer Dorow about 25 minutes to read the guilty verdicts on all 76 charges.
Brooks’ case garnered national media attention in part due to the liberal policies which allowed him to walk the streets and commit this crime. Brooks had been freed previously on a mere $1,000 bail from an earlier case in Milwaukee County. A Milwaukee Journal Sentinel analysis found that bail to be considerably lower than the average of similar open cases. He also had been assessed as a high risk for release. Nonetheless, he was released on the streets only to commit murder not long after.
City of Waukesha officials welcomed the trial’s end. “I am thankful that the jury found the defendant guilty on all counts,” said Mayor Shawn Reilly. “We can now re-focus on taking steps forward as a community and continue the healing process.”
“The victims’ families as well as our first responders continue to deal with the lasting effects of the horrors of that day,” said Police Chief Dan Thompson. ” We are grateful for the support that has come from all over the world, and we ask you to continue to keep all those involved in your prayers.”
A statement from the city read, in part, “As a community, we still have a long road ahead filled with difficult days. This will be especially true as we approach the one-year anniversary of the tragedy. However, as we have experienced the past year, we know that when we stand together, we remain Waukesha Strong.”
