“Taliban fighters have entered Afghanistan’s presidential palace hours after President Ashraf Ghani fled the country,” Al Jazeera reported in an article sharing many pictures and a video of the terrorist group taking the palace. The pictures and the video are marked, “Al Jazeera Exclusive.”
“The group’s leadership, surrounded by dozens of armed fighters, addressed the media from the country’s seat of power,” Al Jazeera added.
One of the Taliban leaders in Al Jazeera’s video claimed to have spent 8 years in Guantanamo. He went on to proclaim that the Taliban was grateful to have taken over Kabul without bloodshed.
A Taliban spokesman and negotiator told The Associated Press that the terrorist group aims to form an “open, inclusive Islamic government,” an apparent attempt to appeal to the Left in the West.
Many observers remarked on Al Jazeera’s exclusive access to a terrorist organization’s news conference.
“Meet Al Jazeera tv of Qatar an exclusive Jihadi tv channel,” Emirati businessman Hassan Sajwani remarked on Twitter.
“Now Qatar Kingdom owned Al Jazeera becomes Taliban’s Exclusive Channel,” Indian journalist J. Gopikrishnan remarked.
Al Jazeera did not respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
