(NewsReady.com) – After Kabul fell to the Taliban, reports surfaced of the terrorist organization doing door-to-door searches. The extremists allegedly looked for people who helped the US during the 20-year war. A new interview with one of the group’s top leaders confirms those reports.
On August 28, Zenger News published an exclusive interview with top Taliban commander Nawazuddin Haqqani. According to him, the organization, which now rules Afghanistan, is hunting down people who worked with their enemies. He claims an elite unit called Al Isha uses US-made handheld scanners to tap into America’s biometric database to identify those who worked with the US and NATO allies.
Unforgivable: "The Taliban has mobilized a special unit, called Al Isha, to hunt down Afghans who helped US and allied forces — and it’s using US equipment and data to do it." https://t.co/chP3E4Jl3N

Zenger News organization reached out to the Pentagon to get answers about how many scanners the military left in Afghanistan. Zenger also wanted to know if the Armed Services could delete the database containing fingerprints and personal information for nearly everyone who worked with the US over 12 years.
The Pentagon refused to answer questions. Spokesman Lt. Col. Anton Semelroth promised to pass along the information to “the right folks.” Neither the State Department nor White House would respond to inquiries either.
Meanwhile, there are already reports of house-to-house executions. If the Zenger reporting is true, it could be one of the most significant and dangerous national security breaches in years.
