Interviewing members of the Taliban terrorists on the streets or Kabul, Ward wore a Muslim woman’s outfit.  Not just a decorative head scarf, but the black head to toe ensemble — a primary symbol of female oppression.  When reporting from the somewhat more secure Kabul airport, she reverts to western wear. (No, I do not mean cowgirl clothes.  Geez!).

As I watched Ward on television, I wondered how she would dress if she were covering the Vatican.  Would she wear a nun’s habit or an altar girl frock?  Would she don traditional Chinese costumes if she were assigned to Beijing.  And God knows how she would look reporting from sub-Saharan Africa.

Ward said the guys she interviewed “seemed friendly” despite their telling her to stand aside because she is a woman and their chanting “death to America.”   Perhaps her definition of “friendly” is the fact that they did not kill her or mutilate her exposed face – as is the Taliban custom.

Ward did not ask them about all the reports of murders and mutilations being carried out by the Taliban across the nation.  Maybe she just feels safer wearing traditional Muslim attire and not asking tough questions – the sort that might make them react less “friendly” — so that she would not get killed or mutilated by the folks she hoped to interview. That would spoil their public relations pitch. 

If she was concerned about her safety appearing in public dressed like a western woman, that would suggest that she did not really believe the Taliban fighters are as friendly as she said.

Of course, not really being a Muslim woman, Ward did not get her outfit quite right by Taliban standards.  When she asked one of the gun-toting terrorists whether all Afghan women would have to dress like her, the answer was “no.”  She did not have her face covered.  It was the difference between the hijab (head scarf) and the burka (face covering). That offers up at least a hint of what the women of Afghanistan have in store.

For whatever reason she had for wearing the Muslim garments, it was still disturbing to me to see an American journalist condescend to placating the enemy just to get a worthless interview that only served to give the Taliban a little underserved beneficial publicity.  We now know that the Taliban are not mean vicious killers because they told us so – thanks to Ward and CNN.

Oh wait!  On a different subject, wasn’t Ward guilty of cultural appropriation.  You know, that nutty left-wing ideology that says we are never to dress in other peoples’ traditional garments and we are not to cook their food.  If you are unfamiliar with the latest crackpot campus craze, look up “cultural appropriation” on the Internet.

  1. you are fake, I tried several times many ways and cannot open article of fake news, I am done, I expected better

  2. So, I’m all excited as a CNN viewer to see the lies.. But I’m still waiting..I read and read but nothing close to the truth about life in Afghanistan. The reporter said That Ward wore the garb to accomodate the locals and asked if she would do the same if it were China or elswhere. This reporter sadly showed his lack of knowledge in these matters,as a frequest traveller to the middle east many times we were ordered to wear traditional robes and head gear before deplaning. Ward wasnt cozying up to them but was honoring an agreement between CNN and the Taliban. It means if you want to come in my country and walk around safely you have tp obey the rules of said country. It was evident she was a bit fearful as she flinched everytime she heartd a gun shot Mr reporter you need to travel more or at least experience something before you criticize it..Kudos to Ward and her devotion to her job. CNN, your reputation continues to be intact with me…thank you…
