4:02 am
just like you're watching this and seeing it happen in real time and it's deeply concerning. clearly from their actions it appears as if they are trying to get kabul isolated >> taliban's sweeping conquest has left kabul effectively surrounded this map shows the taliban's advances since april when president biden announced u.s. troops would withdraw from afghanistan. the red territory is under taliban control. pink, still contested. taliban fighters have now seized the second largest city in the country, kandahar. the taliban tweeted out this video of its fighters celebrating on top of an armored humvee as it drove through the streets. we're seeing similar scenes in other captured capitol cities as well taliban fighters parading around in vehicles they captured from u.s. trained and equipped afghan forces meanwhile, the humanitarian crisis also deepening. thousands of displaced and

4:04 am
people staying in that park today compared to a couple of days ago have just shot up people are living under the hot sun with very little shelter and many of them have come with nothing because they've come from cities that have been centers of fighting. we spoke to one man who was an interpreter for nato for quite a long time. fears for his life has not been able to get a visa. >> you have the language we issue them. we put them in no money to buy food. from at large and there are also warnings that this could turn into a humanitarian crisis

there is another war zone in this country in the biggest city in afghanistan it could have grave,grave implications for the civilian population tyler? >> thank you very much kelly cobiella president biden under mounting pressure and criticism as the taliban outruns afghanistan. today the president received a briefing from the national security team. nancy pelosi is requesting a full briefing for all house lawmakers when they return from recess republicans are blasting president biden forth rapidly deteriorating situation. lindsey graham tweeted president biden truly has no regrets about his decision to withdraw then he is disconnected from reality the pent gone insists it will complete its withdrawal from afghanistan by the end of the month. here's nbc's shannon pettypiece.
4:06 am
>> reporter: the white house says president biden is having no second thoughts about his decision to withdraw troops even as the taliban takeover of the country continues and critics draw parallels to the fall of saigon press secretary jen psaki said the president is focused on america's interest and the region and making sure there is an orderly draw down and americans are protected. administration officials have been defending biden's position to pull troops out saying it is up to the afghan anies to unite and take control of their country's future that has come under heavy criticism. senate minority leader mitch mcconnell said the u.s. is heading into a scene worse than the fall of say gone the criticism is not just from republicans. here's what the former ambassador under the obama administration had to say? >> we basically gave up on
4:07 am
afghanistan and what president biden did was to embrace it, embrace the envoy. he owns it >> reporter: domestically what all this means for biden is unclear. polling in the spring indicated the public was behind his decision to pull out troops but that sentiment could change as the scenes of a brutal taliban takeover unfold just weeks ahead of the 20th anniversary of the september 11th attacks tyler. >> shannon, thank you. douglas olifant, served as the director of iraq at the national security council during the bush 43 and obama administrations he's a senior security fellow with the new american foundation you spent a year in afghanistan advising on counter insurgency, sir. how has this gotten so bad so quickly and are you surprised at how quickly the government backed forces have seemed to melt away?
4:08 am
>>. >> it play sz into everyone's biases senator lindsey graham, you're saying look at what's happening, i told you so. am i surprised it's happening so quickly? >> yes in some places i spent a month of my life in gozney province be in 2010 at the height of the surge. even then gozney was controlled from the taliban except for the city and a couple of bases the idea they can take gozney city doesn't surprise me. >> a lot of criticism about how
4:09 am
the u.s. is acting what could have been what would have been a better approach >> even for those who supported the withdrawal from afghanistan, which i was one, having done this a bit more deliberately could have been helpful. there may have been a way, for example, to find a third party country, a pakistani company, a turkish company to perform the maintenance on the afghan air forces aircraft so those could still be flying. frederick kagan has pointed out that we could have pushed this past the summer, past the fighting season, stayed just another couple months, until it was cold and snowy and then withdrew so that the taliban wouldn't have the opportunity to move clearly there are ways this could have been done better, but whether this means we shouldn't have withdrawn is still a wide open question. >> thank you very much for your time today we appreciate it thanks again. >> thanks very much. >> you're very welcome. big news on vaccines

4:11 am
some americans with compromised immune systems can now get a third vaccine dose the cdc director signed off on the move hours after an advisory panel voted unanimously to authorize the extra shot in a statement dr. rochelle
4:12 am
walensky said emerging data suggests some people with moderately to severely compromised immune systems do not always build the same imm immunity it is worth noting the cdc did not clear additional doses for fully vaccinated americans who are not immunocompromised or those who received johnson & johnson's single dose vaccine. today's announcement comes as covid cases in the u.s. have nearly doubled over the past two weeks alone. they've now averaged more than 123,000 new infections every day. hospitalizations and deaths, they are both rising as well dr. ann ramoine now, professor of epidemiology from the ucla school of public health, doctor, the cdc says 100 million americans are immunocompromised. how important was this decision? >> this is a really important
4:13 am
decision that's come up today and this is because we have this group of people, somewhere between 7 and 9 million americans, 3% of our population, who are immunocompromised. they may have had organ transplants, may be on some sort of medication that will really tamp down their immunity and they are whenthey were able to get the vaccine, they didn't really mount an immune response sufficient to protect themselves against this virus that's why right now both the fda and the cdc are recommending that these people get an additional dose which has been shown in studies to improve immune response in about 1/3 to 1/2 of the population. >> dr. fauci says that eventually he thinks everybody will need a third dose do you agree with that how soon do you think that might be >> well, i think dr. fauci is right. the situation is this, right now we're seeing a lot of break through cases but these break through cases are causing mild to moderate disease.
4:14 am
you're not seeing severe disease, hospitalization and death. that's what these vaccines were tested against all of these severe outcomes the problem is we're starting to see cases where we're having break through, people can get infected and pass it on to other people that's not enough to warrant a booster shot what's going to warrant a booster shot is when we see real waiting effectiveness keeping people from severe disease and from hospitalization or death. we're not there yet, but when we are that's when we're going to need a booster. >> let's go to florida talk about florida now one of the highest case uptake rates, highest hospitalizations as well. in response, the governor says he is now going to open centers where you can go and get monoclonal antibody treatments to tamp the disease down let's hear what the governor says >> this is just one thing we're doing. we're going to be doing more
4:15 am
>> doctor, is it masks are going to make a difference we want to make monoclonal antibodies available to those who need them and as soon as possible what's going to stop this surge right away are maskmandates fo indoor settings and getting as many shots in arms as we can. >> to be clear, the monoclonal antibodies are not a preventive. you take them after you are positive with covid, correct >> absolutely. monoclonal antibodies are for people who already have covid. we want to stop people from getting covid and from spreading covid. that's why we want masks and vaccines. the battle over mandating masks in school. houston school district, the largest in texas, voted to require masks when schools
4:16 am
reopen in the coming weeks it joins a growing number of districts in the state defying governor greg abbott's order banning such measures. in ochocinco city public schools will make both students and teachers mask up, vaccinated or not. it is the first district to go against the state's law blocking mask requirements in schools and in mississippi where many students return to the classroom this month, some schools have already switched back to remote learning because of covid outbreaks there. more than 4,000 students quarantining there right now still, when it comes to mandating masks, the governor says he's not budging. nbc's ellison barber is in hat tisberg. >> reporter: lamar county school district has the highest number of positive covid cases of any school district in the state of mississippi. 281 positive cases outbreaks forced them to close two schools in this district and move those students to an
4:17 am
entirely virtual schedule until next week. they've temporarily enacted a mask mandate for those still in classes. mississippi chapter of the american academy of pediatrics wants the governor to step in and issue a universal mask mandate for all schools. they say the data shows it works. this time last year with a mask mandate they have 57 outbreaks in mississippi schools all year. this year they've had at least 80 covid outbreaks in less than a month. we spoke to one mom in hattiesberg whose mom recently tested positive from covid-19. they think she got it from school. >> we started a good two weeks from other schools i think what we're experiencing here is unfortunately probably what a lot of other school districts throughout the country are going to experience, if they're not a little bit more proactive. >> reporter: she told us her daughter did not wear a facemask at school and her daughter is not vaccinated given what's happened they say the family is rethinking all of
4:18 am
that, but she does not think the governor is at fault for what's happening in schools she believes that school districts and families should decide what to do in terms of masking. tyler? >> ellison barber, thank you. the pandemic sent a lot of people home to work and now a lot want to stay right there what happens if your employer says your tiny commute means a smaller paycheck and good news for governor cuomo. the advice from lawyerth

inappropriately touching women. senator rand paul says he filled out paperwork to disclose his wife's controversial stock purchase but he forgot to hit send the senator is facing backlash after filing the documents one year late. senator paul's wife bought stock in gilead sciences on february 20th of last year. gilead makes the covid-19 treatment. he came after lawmakers after they were briefed privately on the coronavirus and before most americans were largely aware of the danger the virus posed senator paul's team says the senator did not attend any of those covid briefings. he should have disclosed within 45 days. he says he filled out the paperwork about two weeks after the buy but forgot to submit it.
4:23 am
instead he filed it this wednesday, 16 months after the deadline cnbc's christina wilke reports gilead is the only single stock purchase senator paul has reported buying or selling during his ten years in the senate the only one not the first lawmaker to face scrutiny over covid related stock moves. last year federal prosecutors investigated senator richard burr, imwho have, fine steen and kelly loeffler prosecutors did not file charges against any of them. christina wilke is reporting how is senator paul's team defending or what happened beyond the idea that he just failed to hit send, forgot to do it >> this is pretty cut and dry. this isn't the dog ate my homework this is the dog ate my tax
4:24 am
return and i was unable to file it this is a law that requires you to disclose these purchases or sales and he simply did not abide by it. on that front what they're doing is minimizing it they're claiming kelly paul, the senator's wife, quote, lost money on the deal. that's not true. she bought the stock and she still has it so she hasn't gained or lost money and the price has gone up, the price has gone down over the last year but she still holds it and whether or not you make or lose money on a questionable trade like this that may have something to do with nonpublic information doesn't really matter. it doesn't change the facts on the table. >> what seems important to note is the committee he was a member of that received a private briefing before the stock purchase, before the w.h.o.

declared covid a pandemic and it was a lot of time when there were only 14 cases of covid in the united states. the timing does seem peculiar here. >> yes and it was one day after an announcement had been made by the n.i.h. that they would be conducting clinical testing on remdesivir one day. the senator's staff is pointing to the one day obscure announcement as evidence that kelly paul's motive, if it was in fact to profit from gilead's new drug that at the time was the only treatment known for covid-19, the only one really being seriously considered, that it was public. it had been public for a day, two days but, yeah, the timing of very interesting. >> very quickly. has senator paul expressed any
4:26 am
regret or his wife over? this bureaucratic mishap? >> no, they have not the senate is not in session friday night in washington in august, they have not. we reached out to the senate ethics committee today they didn't get back to us i think it's fair to expect they'll look more closely at this one of the other things that's so strange about this is it doesn't fit the pattern for ten years that senator paul and his wife had had mutual funds, some blind trusts for their children. never had a single stock when an ethics committee or regulator looks at this, this breaks with a pattern of their entire life as investors. >> appreciate it. >> thanks. have you ever purchased travel insurance in the covid era? depending on your destination, you might not have a choice.
