Chilling footage shows the horror that Afghans and even some Americans are living under in Afghanistan.
Taliban militants are carrying out “house-to-house executions in Kabul” right after the U.S. departure, Fox News reports.
This report was confirmed by a senior U.S. source who spoke with Fox News Investigative journalist Lara Logan.
The Pentagon confirmed that hundreds of American citizens were left behind.
Biden promised, “If there’s American citizens left, we’re gonna stay to get them all out.” This never happened.
Instead, as soon as the last American soldier left, footage shows the Taliban taking control of the Kabul airport and shooting guns in celebration.
Another video shows them entering a hangar with equipment the US military left behind.
A US general said this equipment is “permanently disabled” and can “never be used again.”
However, footage has surfaced that appears to show US equipment in use, causing widespread speculation about whether the equipment is, in fact, permanently disabled.
Now we are seeing horrifying reports that the Taliban is doing “house-to-house executions.”
An Afghan man who worked with Americans spoke with Fox News.
In the background, there is chilling audio featuring gunshots.
“I think there’s a conflict between the Taliban, I have no idea where I’m located,” the man said.
“From everywhere I hear the sounds of shooting, gunfire. I have no idea how to leave,” the Afghan man said.
This was recorded around the time the final U.S. plane left Kabul.

More from Fox News:
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.AdvertisementAdvertisement
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.
Retired Army Maj. Gen. Vincent Boles told Fox News that the Taliban should not get too comfortable.
“Be careful what you ask for,” Boles said. “Now they have to show they can govern a nation and people that are very different than when they left power. Will the Taliban go forward to the future or pull Afghanistan back to the past? The answer will be in their behavior… behavior is believable.”
Last Wednesday, a former translator for a high-ranking U.S. Army Ranger 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.
What’s more, in holding to his Aug. 31 withdrawal deadline, President Biden appears to have broken his promise to stay in Afghanistan until every American has been evacuated.
Biden told ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos on August 18th that the U.S. military’s objective in Afghanistan was to get “everyone” out.
This included Americans as well as Afghan allies and their families. The promise was broken.
