Taliban SPIE rigging over Kabul in Black Hawk?

Is the Taliban really SPIE rigging over Kabul in a Black Hawk?!
Reddit user u/Common_Echo_9061 posted a viral image in r/afghanistan. The picture claims the Taliban has managed to fly one of the captured UH-60 Black Hawk helicopter. Furthermore, that they are now using it for Special Patrol Insertion and Extraction (SPIE) rope techniques over Kabul.  Some time referred to as “spy-rigging,” this allows operators to get in and out of impractical situations.
If these claims are true, it would be an additional embarrassment to the highly criticized withdrawal of Afghanistan.

Some initially thought the man was being hung by the neck, but other images appear to show a harness. Stay tuned to American Grit for more news, stories and updates.
