a valley of steep mountains that form a solid natural defense spearheading the resistance. and now is the ask and vice president. hum, rella sala. unlike us nato, we haven't lost spirit and see enormous opportunities ahead. useless caveats of finished joining. the resistance fall has declared himself afghanistan's legitimate acting president. off his former both fled the country and the tyler bonds advance and cobble. he has fought p as in thomas before and was also in charge of spying on them. heating the national security directorate, and now the key for guy is helping him raleigh, the resistance together. that's much of my suit, the son and namesake of a prominent afghan warlord, who opposed the 5 ton upon rule. here's what my suit was saying back in june about defending his homeland and they're going to fight for the rights of the people. they're going to fight for the rights of the woman and they're going to fight for many other values. the church. busy and you look and we achieved the past to see
5:05 pm
that you're the 1st line of defense. we are defending europe. you're defending division. and africans are fighting them just for themselves. but for everyone. and those videos ready started much on line off the resistance forces. here you can see the troops slide, the green and white flags of the northern alliance. this will formed off the tunnel on foss, came to power, $96.00, and it for the group on toby, us led invasion. we discussed the emerging resistance of the number of x for me i did, is defined and over whether it poses any real threat to fatality. whether you remember machine, how strong this is going to be. but to choose the moment it sort of symbolic way, because the ton of under one control of the country, pretty much all of it. and this is all small pockets, resistance could be remaining there and they couldn't develop designs and doomed in the, in the short term not get very big. i think one big question will be whether any foreign countries don't recognize north and line any other resistance group. and to
5:06 pm
try and ostracize, and i'd like to try to been given that funds to value the conser district has a history of standing up against any kind of italian rule. let it be the soviets later. but the 2nd law, i'm the top one, submitted a good jumpstart. all those were pushing the on the one will rally around. the literacy of i met some assaults some masoud at the moment. i'm given that vice president stared back and he's making this defined claim. he's going to be very, i'll on the mental in terms of goal is things that particular produce and which was in there pretty slowly coming together. and the fight promises to be a black one as the taliban has got it. hands on. the high tech also was billions gifted by the americans to the afghan army, the us national security adviser to face some pretty embarrassing questions about
5:07 pm
about weaponry that's behind those black hawks were not given to the tall one. they were given to the ask and national security forces to be able to defend themselves . we don't have a complete picture, obviously of where every article of defense materials has gone by. certainly a fair amount of it has fallen into the hands of the taliban. and obviously, we don't have a sense that they are going to readily hand it over to us at the airport. taliban fighters have been parading around kabul, shutting off that new made in america, rifles and humvees, and ton of on social media accounts have been posting video films and other cities and regions of alms, originally supplied by western powers. audio. we spoke to the founding, add new site. this can't be happening. he says the seized weapons are not advanced enough to give the ton of bond a significant up against the rivals who assembly the armed because of the nature of the tele, bon african army wasn't being armed, fight against a,
5:08 pm
a high tech opponent. so i'm not sure that it gives the tell, but a lot of material to oppose a force that's getting arm safe from the wes, they've got some pretty fancy stuff and they may have a lot of like hardware they don't have any of the really high tech stuff they don't have any aircraft, missiles and things like that because the, the ask in military wasn't supplied with those. so i'm not sure it gives a great advantage. they wouldn't have things for attacking another power coming in . because the they were being armed against the taliban. remember, community and to me to have some advice for washington on how to avoid such humiliations. he shouted with option, we're tansy on all t is going underground. do you want a u. s. intervention a military intervention? tell me about which country you want. the u. s. intervening and i think it's about, i mean, because
5:09 pm
a lot of people are saying we need to stay in afghanistan to help the women. i say, how about in the united states takes about 3 or 4000 troops and invades los angeles and brings health care and medical aid, and shelter to the 60000 homes, people in los angeles. how about we invade the inner cities of america? and we bring health care to those people. we bring shelter to those people. we bring medicine to those people. we bring counseling to those people. how about we invade america? and we start trying to help america. when is, when is america going to care about the women? and, you know, one out of 5 kids in america lives in poverty. so if you want to help people, why don't you give women and children want to have women living wage in the united states, give them health care and give them an education? ironically, that's what the government up gavin ended up until we invented the taliban. if you took, so there's 600000 according to statistics or 600000 homeless people in america. lot
5:10 pm
of those are women. lot of those are children. now if you gave them each a $1000.00 stipend a month, a $1000.00 a month to go get housing. that would cost $7200000000.00 a year. 7.2000000000. you know, we've been spending 2 trillion dollars or the last 20 years, 300000000 dollars a day to kill people and get it then. so the united states ever really cared about women. they could spend a $7200000000.00 to do or take care of the homeless people in the united states. give them a 1000 that they won't do it. so yet joe biden, nancy pelosi, chuck schumer, mitch mcconnell, all the leaders and both parties. they know that they're, that one out of 5 children lives in poverty in the united states, along with their mothers. and they don't care. ah, as for us can install itself. it's international app point in the capital for more scenes of chaos. on wednesday,

comes to the issue of women's rights. and yet, it just remains words. it's almost like it's fancy. p r. the overall sentiment really is one that europe does not want migraines and they not going to be offering any kind of helping hand. and just in case you need further proof of it, germany has come under fire for you think it's military ship to bring some $65000.00 cans of beer to germany instead of bringing hundreds of guns and their families who have hoped the german authorities in afghanistan these people were not going to be uses and they have not been evacuated in time. the german president has said that the gun turmoil shamed the waste the images of desperation at capable airport shameful for the political west. we are experiencing

5:20 pm
of stone which triggered the collapse of the cobble government. seems. have coffin, danny thought comb with the u. s. president's approval rate and sharply hitting an all time low. has all corresponding all t is caleb open with more. the chaotic scenes and cobble have certainly not been good for the white house. the approval rating of joe biden has now dropped to less than half only 46 percent of americans say they liked the jobs the new president is doing now. the events in afghanistan has certainly been a factor because prior to them he was at 53 percent. so a 7 percent drop seems you have resulted. some polls are now showing that joe biden's handling of afghanistan is less popular than george w bush's handling of afghanistan. and we now have a situation where a senator bob menendez, representing the u. s. foreign relations committee of the senate. he's coming forward with this statement. the events of recent days have been the combination of
5:21 pm
a series of mistakes made by republican and democratic administrations over the past 20 years, including the trumpet, ministrations floored negotiations with the taliban, and the biden administration's flawed execution of the u. s. withdraw. the committee will seek a full accounting for these shortcomings. now, republicans are being far less forgiving. they say that jo biden's decision to rapidly pull out of afghanistan is harming the united states, discrediting the country, hurting relations with allies. there's been a fire storm of anger from the republican side of the aisle this biden administration. so they plan for every scenario. they told us to day prior that coble cobble was not eminent. he told us less than a month before that this would never happen yesterday. president biden would accept responsibility and explain how he would fix the catastrophe in galveston. instead, he blamed his 3 pre disasters and against the ford beside our troops for 20 years.
5:22 pm
thing the pointing wound solve this crisis boaters there should be top to bottom accountability at the pentagon and within the administration for this disaster that this stunning failure has been met with silence from biden cause into serious question. his ability to carry out his duties as commander in chief, the president's failure to acknowledge of disastrous withdrawl provides no comfort to americans or afghan partners whose lives hang in the balance. now to add insult to injury, there are millions, if not billions of dollars of weapons were talking gun ammunition tanks, helicopters that have simply been abandoned. these were weapons that were given to the u. s. trained afghan forces and they seem to have been left behind. and from what jake sullivan, who is the national security advisor, joe biden says it's pretty unlikely that the taliban is simply going to hand them over at the airport now. nancy pelosi stepped up and defended the president on this
5:23 pm
point. i commend the president for the action that he took. this is what happens when you withdraw you some stuff. some equipment is left there. now joe biden stands by his decision. he says that there were not ever been a good time for the usa to pull out of afghanistan. this would have resulted at any point in which this happened. he says he did the right thing. polls are showing americans are not pleased. there is also some outrage in the international community, not a good day for the white house. low back in afghanistan, the telephones, political leader and co found milan to gone a broader has now returned from exile. kind of on affiliated media showed him being greeted by cheering crowds off the plane in kandahar for a dog who was arrested by pakistani security forces in 2010 and kept in custody for years is now expected by some to become the next leader. are honest on one another taliban commander who was seen on sunday storming the presidential palace and the capital turned out to be a form,
5:24 pm
a detainee at the new tourist. guantanamo bake on tiese to me to park takes a closer look at his and all the similar cases if the situation in afghanistan wasn't already a disaster, showcasing the shortcomings of u. s. foreign policy and appetite for regime change. well, it turns out one of the taliban leaders who gave a celebratory speech from couples, presidential palace was none other than a former guantanamo detainees who was released as a quote medium risk. yes. seriously, of all the people, the us, tortured in guantanamo. this was one of the guys deems thought, really dangerous, and let go meet gold roo honey. one of the 1st detainees at guantanamo in 2002. he was captured by us forces on suspicion of being a taliban security officer during his time and get my rou, honey. maintain that he was quote, a simple shopkeeper who tried to help americans. so some 5 years later were 8.
5:25 pm
according to ronnie, he was released on the promise that he just wanted to help is sick father, one an appliance store and couple fast forward to 2021 and he's a taliban commander, leading the take over of cool. so either the u. s. intelligence was, well not really intelligent and let a taliban radical pull one over them and lie his way out of the hands of the ca or it was the time it's been and get know that actually radicalized the simple shopkeeper into a taliban fanatic. don't tell you for the to me were innocent. indeed, because he lived and they've got to stop and it was captured on or near the battle area. he must know something of importance. well, apparently all the torture and human rights violations that get mall, and other us detention centers turned out to be all for nothing. sure, they apparently got some good and fell out of some of the detainees. but on the other hand, the ones that they let go went on to became terrorist leaders. yeah, ronnie isn't the only detain eastern terrorist boss. there's
5:26 pm
a whole lift. there is the 5 taliban leaders that obama swapped for an american desert, or these leaders were promised to never see a battlefield again. and that they would be held in could tar far from again, a stand regardless of circumstances, whatever those circumstances may turn out to be. we still get an american soldier back. if you seldom kept it, period full stop yet somehow they're now apparently the masterminds behind the current take over a couple, one of them is even a part of the official delegation of the taliban. he even took part in negotiating b. u. s. withdraw from again then earlier this year. we'll see. then there are the isis super terrorists. for example, the infamous all buck daddy, the former leader of isis. he was captured in 2004, held in detention at a u. s. facility in iraq for 10 months, let go and went on to have a successful career and terrorism becoming the head honcho of the big bad,
5:27 pm
isis. he was a street thug when we picked them up in 2004. it's hard to imagine we could about a crystal ball, then that would tell us he'd become head of isis. yeah. if only you could have seen that coming anyway. and then there's this guy who was a valuable inform and during his time, at the hands of us intelligence, our was a song but of unique talent and ability. and now he's no less than the current leader of isis replacing all. but daddy turns out he was just using the us to get rid of the competition for the top spot amongst terrorist, another big wolf's. this is kind of beginning to seem like a trend. now, basically, not only did the us fail to recognize dangerous radicals when they were right there their hands, they apparently even managed to embolden and help radicalized people who probably wouldn't have posed any threat if it weren't for having an encounter with some american intelligence officers. in the end,
5:28 pm
america seems to be fighting problems. it's self created. and so many that doesn't even come as a shock. we do know that more than 90 percent of all the people rounded up and taken to guantanamo and tortured and held him solitary and held under terrible conditions for years. us had absolutely no evidence on or the evidence was completely mistaken and distorted. and that torture is really real. busy and it is created oceans and oceans of hate. and bog from base bog from air force base. there was major prison there where that held thousands of prisoners for years. that creates great hatred among anyone who's ever been through a system like that or their family members. and it is why the government finally completely collapse. well, it's an end to the south coverage of the unraveling situation in afghanistan that we've been following very closely and will continue to do so. but just before we
5:29 pm
end for the sour, some breaking news coming in from southern russia in military aircraft crashed off to take off for portly kidding. the pilot. the pain is said to been carrying no weapons and came down in on populated area. investigators have been sent to the site with the following, not store and keep you updated. this was our teens national life. moscow the who's a long long when i would show the wrong. why don't i just don't. i mean, you have to fill out the thing because the after an engagement
5:30 pm
equals the trail, when so many find themselves worlds apart, we choose to look for common ground in the with the hello and welcome to cross off. were all things are considered. i'm peter lavelle. russia, china relations are strong and getting deeper. we are told this is dangerous for the washington lead world. is it? why are moscow and beijing moving closer together.
