only thing that we publish is our local journalist reports now on how the situation is unfolding in the city where the people de woke up in the morning and they thought that it talked about already be. and i'll just get the call and get a plan to be able to call the people to rush away a day. we just went to the barn, so they went to the, to the market, to buy food. there was a lot of crowd of traffic people is just that you could, you saw the people who are in the car and the motor by, by food they will not do or do i'll just sort of the problems. but in the afternoon with a ton of been in talk to the c d, d y. there was no more more and more people. the 1st people blame on their america because the people are changing or people are staying. in fact have gone on 100 to
9:04 pm
tyler bon one year ago when americans and dad talked about had an agreement and i've got some hundreds over to, to the top from that time. american did not have a government gun people. they always that lead to tell them that the province is led to the district that it did not try to prevent the abundance for on capturing mistakes and capturing of their 1st people playing on blending on america. and the 2nd people are blaming listed over a month, which was that lead by any all the tell about ramped up it's offensive in april, following jo, biden's and confirmation was pulling out american troops. as you can see on this graphic in just month, the medicine group has gone from a week position to controlling the entire country. this is how events unfolded the
9:05 pm
i the the
9:06 pm
video proposed to show inmates release for the taliban from the country's largest jail. they also early se by graham military prison located just 25 can. oh, it has no capitalism. i that reports came about 5000 comix was set free, mostly about a fight is ready to join the sold this footage. so can i do on line show you a ton about setting up a roadblock between a lot about a couple people driving through reporting, being checked for documents with men without bid being asked us to registration this administrators, 7 outs, a number of its troops. and i've got to start who will be increase to $6000.00 within the next 2 days. that says hundreds of americans have already left the country and thousands of scrambling to follow. meanwhile, helicopters and planes were seen flying over the african capital. as nato sought to ensure, safe evacuation of foreign citizen, the u. s. embassy and the capital load of scars and stripes solve the saw for
9:07 pm
transferred to the airport. taylor morgan is in new york. he's following the american reaction as i've gone on unraveled. while the flag is down, the u. s. embassy is evacuated, and the staff is at the cobble airport. and from what we understand, they were ordered to burn sensitive documents before leaving the embassy. and now the voices are comparing the situation and cobble to the situation in saigon, in 1970, by the famous photograph of the us helicopter, pulling out as the government of south vietnam bell. well, here's some of what's been said. the mitigated designs are enough, again, histone the shameful, saigon, like abandonment of cobalt, the brutalization of african women, and the slaughter of our allies is the predictable outcome of the trump biden doctrine of weakness. now republican senator ben sas also said the united states would regret its actions and ask dana dan,
9:08 pm
and that this would hurt the international community and it would weaken the alliances of the united states around the world. however, anthony blanket and the u. s. secretary of state does not agree. he said that he said, basically that cobble is not signed on. and that is quite interesting because quite a little bit of difference there. lincoln said that the united states had achieved its goals and i get a stamp. and that because the terrorists responsible for $911.00 were apprehended and killed, i hit add, achieved its golden, and had been successful in that country. now it's important to note that the terrorists responsible for 911 were largely from saudi arabia. they were not afghan . furthermore, osama been lot and was killed in pakistan, not in afghanistan, so quite interesting, but lincoln is satisfied with the u. s. mission after 18 year. here's where you, that we succeeded in achieving those fundamental objectives and the idea that we
9:09 pm
would sign up for remaining there in the midst of a civil war for another 510 or 20 years, was simply not in the national interest. now part of the reason there's a just scramble is the us estimate about how long it would take the taliban to retake the country. seemed to have been changing at one point, they thought they had 6 months or 12 months. at one point they thought the a 90 day. then even as recently as 2 days ago, they were saying there was no threat to cobble. here's what was said by a representative of the pentagon. always not right now in an imminent threat environment. but clearly, if you just look at what the taliban has been doing, you can see that they are trying to isolate cobble. now there's talk more troops being sent them to oversee the evacuation of us citizens. but as far as protecting afghans the white house has made clear, they do not feel that is in the interest of the united states at this time. let's
9:10 pm
go live now. that was black gun, american scholar and former adviser to the afghan government. so thanks for joining us. goods, having the program with us today. where do you think things went so wrong? and i'm going to stop what the government has simply failed to put up a sort of resistance over the last few weeks. well, i think good things went wrong at the very beginning, i would say in 2002 or 3. i would like to find out that it was wrong for the united states to attack and occupy that it had nothing to do with the $911.00 crime and disaster but to attack and occupy a country and then stay there for 20 years. and then also pretty much deformed, the entire society was a mistake. so the mistakes went from the beginning and that is been added states
9:11 pm
initially. it's an after thought and now that they are occupying the dentist on, in order to do a nation building or liberate women in the narcotics bring democracy and progress and stabilize the country. is what is the region and, and terrorism. and even though president binding recently pointed out that our objectives have been reached and we're leaving that is simply wrong because none of the objectives, so the get they were pointed out have actually been achieved there. you know, most women still live in the middle ages. the country desperate the poor and under develop. half of the school is that no buildings. most people are hungry, half of the people are under employed in or, and employed. and here now,
9:12 pm
and of course, nothing was built to sort of nothing was done to, to build a civilized democratic society. and the government benighted states installed in afforded in the last 20 years did very little for the country. they were corrupt, inefficient in effective and dysfunctional enhance, you know, and now the latest installment mr. ne left most that can actually very happy and they are very angry with the sample. they need one for not doing anything at all into for abandoning the country in this critical juncture. and also, i think the disaster right now indicate the sort of daily or
9:13 pm
diplomatic political, military intelligence on the daily or space and its allies. what is the failure of the governments over the last 20 years? and so now we have decided by taking over those things here. okay, at this point, but i think that just the beginning, we really don't know what would happen and i'm afraid, you know, there could be a massive civil war. busy pretty soon us officials have claimed, in recent weeks that they've completed, they would see the objectives they went into afghanistan to do in the 1st place. i firstly want to ask if you agree with that assessment and secondly that you mentioned the feeling of abandonment. that certainly a feeling that many afghans feeling abandoned by the united states. do you agree
9:14 pm
with that feeling among the populace? not well, i agree with the public, but i don't agree with washington and its allies. as i said earlier, again, i have been going to the last 20 years, i went there on was the yearly and the 7 years i was in afghanistan and i speak both languages, you know, and i saw a witness, and i talked to many people as i said none of the development objectives were actually achieved through, you know, there are a few more schools. a few women and girls go to school. some women work. you know, there are internet, some in sky, you know, some apartment building, but the vast majority of the people having sound right now lives, you know, very desperate life. it's a, it's terribly poor under develop and very oppressed. and the democracy building
9:15 pm
was that sham. because all of the actions in the back for elections were all rigged and fraudulent. and so the drugs, you know, we have narcotics to 3 and a half 1000000, addicted to drugs in the whole region has been terribly, the stable right. and the fat yvonne and other insurgent groups and supposedly there are some 20 other surgeon groups operating enough. so i don't know how washington or anybody else can say that they get kids were achieve must be away. now feel very angry, very disappointed, very betrayed and very afraid. they're very angry. both would be american decision making. it says that what they're going in and going out were terribly thoughtless
9:16 pm
in the show. you know, the failures of american intelligence, the military diplomacy and politics. and so i've dentist found right, and i was a critical juncture because people, some people remembered what double bonds were like last time they were routing their country either i've heard about it and also over the last 2 months or so. see on television, in some cases actually, some kelly bonds were to be the be the propagation, the, the soldiers and so forth. but it's also very interesting to find out that anybody have about 70000 fighting people. on the other hand, we have 835-0000. that's done, security forces, you know, where they and i just spent about a $100000000000.00 on it, but it didn't train them properly. and so in many cases,
9:17 pm
there wasn't a shot being fired, governors, generally commanders, a massive soldiers simply abandoned. some of them actually just change. so it's an on and on the failure of the american government and ask them government certainly very dark time for going on. and it's people, doctors all her while ha, scholar and former advisor to the afghan government. thanks so much for your take on that global story. here today and all the international, you're welcome. thank you for having the good luck. well, this war house close to us saw me the lives of almost 2 and half 1000 soldiers. the question is, what are the feelings today of those who fought and lost comrades? and i've got to start to us veterans question, the goals of that war? well, at this point, for, for all of the men and women of our country have served in afghanistan, who have lost friends, who, who seen people injured,
9:18 pm
have gone through terrible emotional and physical trauma as a result of this service. and had hope that in some way they were helping afghanistan for all of these people. most of them are sad, some are angry, but really they're sad and they're asking the question, and i think it's been reported widely. why, why was, why were we there? what were we really doing? because we did not achieve any mission that was sold to our soldiers to our young men and women who served there. what they were told they were doing was not, i'm sorry, it was not the mission that was accomplished. ok. we didn't accomplish that mission, whatever, mission biden, and trump, and george bush and obama were hoping to accomplish that was kept a secret from our troops. our troops were told of very positive things about the future. but again, a standing, none of it was true, and i until committee knows very well that it, most of it was based on falso vin imagining imagination, the veterans on iraq,
9:19 pm
the veterans of afghanistan, all of us veterans ought to be going to our congress to say no more wars because every one of these conflicts has ended up not only with hundreds of thousands, if not millions of millions of citizens of the countries we've gone into being dead or wounded. but certainly the veteran population of the united states that continues to suffer suicides at $22.00 a day and long term mental problems that affect not only them personally, but their whole families and their communities is something that our us congress and our politicians ought to be held accountable for forgetting us into these endless wars the when was for the defense contractors of the united states of america, they got really rich and those afghans that, that help them on a high level, not really rich, but those that actually implemented the projects didn't get rich and now the,
9:20 pm
the retribution and retaliation from it's all about who said you'd never should have been working with the u. s. government on in any of this anyway. is tragically going to happen. meanwhile, a 1st passer british troops arrived in the car on saturday to see if got nationals and we locate former guns stuff. $600.00 soldiers are expected in total this week, which will prevent 2nd reward that i've got to on is on the brink of collapse. finding the us pull out. i mistake then, wallace added that kind of medicine is clearly have momentum across the country. that's going to start as heading towards civil war, also predicting that the battle scarred nation will again become a breeding ground for al qaeda. how many i can feel abandoned by that british evacuation of it. work is to help form reprisals foreign troops. here reprisals from the thought about one group of afghans who desisted. u. k. forces run it on the streets of cobble on friday morning. the british government protect them. we spoke to one for winter work for both british american forces. these are the remain
9:21 pm
anonymous fears for his life. my family has received threats. in the past some time my friend be home was attacked twice. my father has been given warnings and threats many, many times. my. my dad's name was called that has lots will be severely at risk because he offered not one but 2 of his sons against the italian. recently, one of the interpreter, his father was caught in a province. he was beaten very badly. and he was asked to ask his son, who is an interpreter, to come and change the city a cause of detail about in the past year. and so a number of interpreters have been appealed or targeted by the taliban. recently, one of the interpreter who used to be an interpreter for the american special
9:22 pm
forces was assassinated by the telephone. of course they will be coming off to them . they'll be coming off to the families and those interpreters. so there will be, but sure there will be 2 americans have gone away from the way everybody is running away. who are they leaving behind the interpreters who have served for years and years old enough kinda some tracing briskin benches. however, the you could government instead of saving the lives, bringing them here to live in peace and safety with their kids. they are making excuses and new conditions put in place only to reject their case. that's all i'm hearing from my colleagues is that their cases have been rejected, rejected. there was a number of cases which were told that they weren't good to go. there were even given there were sent an email confirming that when they were ready for their
9:23 pm
flights, they are told now that they can really go to the u. k. i and my brother, both of us would interpreter for the coalition forces. my brother is still enough kind of the british government is making swells accusations and excuses to withhold. not only my brothers, but many of the interpreters who genuinely need the british governments help and are very high risk. it's frustrating for the people who have served the british forces and currently are a priest. and i think it's a u. k is a moral in moral cation to, to protect those who have worked alongside them, enough canister. i strongly believe that the telephone will hunt down every are going to interpreter who is. so if the british and american forces it will be the african interpreters who will pay the ultimate price. countries have been
9:24 pm
evacuating national is in a panic. here you can see from him, croatians struggling to haul heavy rucksacks, bags and cases packed with all their belongings to board military helicopters, cobble airport, other states of all suspended diplomatic missions, denmark and no lawyer, temporarily shutting that shed compound germany and finland. the closing bare facility, citing the deteriorating situation and more than 60 countries of coolant. i've got to start to ensure the safety of those who want to leave. the thought about meanwhile, says it was thought foreigners departing. russia, which is long advocated working with the transition. government says its mission is not under threats, and it has no plans to shut it was a power vacuum a significant of course, there's gas fire in the city armed looters. we know about the smell of burning. the important thing is that the taliban, as they themselves promise are interested in a peaceful transition of power. they guarantee the safety of for an embassy,
9:25 pm
including our embassy. we have significantly reinforced our security in advance. now there are no threats to our diplomat. our property will continue our work here in a calm and normal manner. and a member of the russian federation, counsellors, void. the research and taliban will now try to spread his influence through former soviet countries. the reports of the taliban on negotiating with authorities and most likely on the surrender of the city and the transfer of power to the taliban. who's to blame the usa? they brought in troops 20 years ago, supposedly trained an army that's losing ground, that a fight and being abandoned. now, if they are trying to attract the world community, then let them call the un security council and let them decide how to stop what's happening. and i've got this done because bloodshed may begin, the security council may decide to enforce peace and may even use the troops of other powers to restore peace enough gone to stan. let's compare that to the
9:26 pm
withdrawal of soviet troops back in 1989. that was an organized pull out. we left nancy buller there who defended. i've got to stand for the mitchie had deemed for years. the americans have not yet managed to leave the territory of afghanistan. and this army, which they supposedly prepared, has turned out to be completely demoralized. we can say for sure that it's unlikely that russia will enter a gun is done. and even if there are some peacekeepers, it's unlikely that russia will be part of that. one of the most dangerous things though, is that if the taliban head to the north, where are allies tajikistan and cut against on our, we will have to do our duty and protect those states. you know, sort of thing that i've got to start taking a serious told on the countries when a tarion situation already heavily burdened by the corona, virus pandemic, from one. so he will care about the precious the local population is under. as the conflict has escalated over the past few weeks, we've seen
9:27 pm
a massive humanitarian disaster playing out. the escalating fighting has led to civilian casualties and large scale civilian displacement across the country. and particularly in the past few weeks, we've seen tens of thousands of people fleeing the fighting to safety. here in cobble, this is also on top of an existing humanitarian disaster in which there was conflict . the ongoing impacts of the corporate 19 pandemic. and a drought was announced earlier this year, so half the population even before the latest escalation and fighting with a need monitoring assistance and those needs are even greater right now are the un warms that nearly 400000 civilians have already fled the home with this year with a particular flag since may most of the display, sort of quarterly women and children. you know, just some of the heart wrenching stories from the refugees. i have been just placed on telecom city. the taliban killed my son. they took all the belongings from my
9:28 pm
house and set fire to demons front of me. the punch me in the mouth, causing my teeth to fall out. they demanded my son and i told them that he's a school teacher. she recently became a teacher and had not even received his salary yet, had a class has broke out and we were taken hostage. the fighting went on for about $6.00 to $7.00 days. we couldn't go outside to do anything we managed to escape. and now where displaced money, i've got a solemn secret. want to come to the e. u, but they're not that welcome with a block out loggerheads over what to do with migrants. and those fleeing violence of next thought is paula slayer explores what happened to europe's open door policy . your opinion is split over what to do with african refugees teaching. assigned them in the letter to the european commission, civil countries insisted they have the right to forcibly support those whose cases have been rejected. they vote not to deport them, would motivate war refugees,
9:29 pm
to flee to europe. we would like to highlight the edge of need to perform returns both voluntary and non voluntary to afghan. a stan stopping return sends the wrong signal and it's likely to motivate even more afghan citizen to leave the home for the e u. the situation in afghanistan is deterioration by the all when it comes as the us and nato prepaid to what's called a truth, that the end of the month after decades, long war situation is so bad that the netherlands, germany, and france have decided to pause the deportation to be for now, the situation in afghanistan is likely to change and events for the coming period are so uncertain that i have decided to introduce a more atoria on deputation decisions and departures. grease or stress belgian and denmark standing. they want the rejected, assign them because the
9:30 pm
e u is not really and does not have the capacity to kind of another major migration crisis. why haven't you guys are waiting make up around 10 percent of asylum seekers there. the 2nd largest group off the syrians and for a continent still scarred by the migration crisis of 56 years ago there was a feeling of deja vu, a feeling of having been they before. that has your opinions worried. they might be on the verge of a fish refugee crisis. honestly, a r t harris went on to recap the latest on time on advance. the minutes in group received the presidential palace in the capital campbell, the self, the president sharp gone, he fled the country. he confirmed his resignation on his facebook page to day. the medicine is not control all the city besides the fault and if they will soon declare and islamic emerett of going to stone leaves a recent pictures from where.
