The Daily Beast reporter Diana Falzone jumped into journalism mode after news broke about the chaos in Afghanistan. She reached out to a few different female reporters in the country on social media to get their perspective on what is happening, and what she heard from them is terrifying.
According to Falzone’s sources, whose stories were relayed to Molly Jong-Fast by Falzone on this bonus episode of The New Abnormal, the Taliban are beating people in the streets, including children, they’ve allegedly shot one woman, and are allegedly going into homes in the middle of the night to film themselves shooting people who they think have worked with the United States. They’re even asking for the number of women in each household to marry them off, or as Molly says, are bringing women back to the dark ages.
