A CNN camera crew embedded with a U.S. Special Forces team in Nejarb, Afghanistan found themselves in the middle of a firefight when they came under fire by a group of Taliban. Quickly mounting a counter attack, the Special Forces were able to secure the area.
Commenting on the incident, one U.S. Special Forces officer stated, “I admire their resiliency and their conviction, for sure. There’s a degree of mutual respect, but that doesn’t mean we want to kill them any less.”
