9:03 am
a country that is poor a lot of unemployment. so this is very good opportunity for some people that even if they were not affected by war, they would like to take this opportunity and go elsewhere. ah, clinical course for the country is not known yet. that's why people are so anxious and confused, and they're very worried. right now we don't have any government or any course of action. it will depend on the behavior of atalla on how they deal with the liberties of the people. what the freedom of the people need and have to enjoy their the women's issues, girls going to schools, administration being handled by and by, by experts. these are all the things that people are waiting and watching your
9:04 am
news. women's rights are one thing and pictures and advertising's or another think. so the taller one have announced officially at least, that they will wide by the law and sharia and islam has given rights to women. and according to this slumming sharia, they will allow women to go to school, go to work, pursue their careers as long as it's in the confines of the stomach. sherry. yeah, it's very clear that islamic sharia has certain conditions, certain principles and certain guidelines. ok, let's get in touch again with our senior correspond mirage guys who's arrived in afghanistan
9:05 am
and cobble with a team from r t to tell us what it's like that there is a long delay on the line. and communications are very patchy. so do bear with us more good to see you. tell us about the apple 1st. there must be a terrifying and desperate place right now. what did you see when you arrived well, as is the situation at the airport is what we expected it to be hectic. we expected it to be chaotic. what we didn't expect is you know how, how wide these, these chaos is it's. it's all over the airport. the air field is lifted with bullet casings with, with codes of people's shoes as they stab be did earlier to get a boat, those, those aircraft even to cling on to aircraft. well, you know, will of, it's be left behind and there's, there's lead to everywhere there's,
9:06 am
there's flashback grenades used, flashbanc, grenades, tear gas canisters like all over the, all over the air script as well as people's clothes, heads got trapped. and i must remark on the bob why it is absolutely everywhere. this is how nato soldiers have presumably decided to keep people away. so, but why need is a need as high as the very, very dense and simply, you know, there's, there's no way to cross it. and given the desperation of people, he has some of the people here that the, to get out. that is the only thing keeping the matt also while there, we heard ceaseless shooting, it was odyssey was endless. every, every 10 minutes, 10 minutes wouldn't pass without gunshots either inside the airport. so this is american. nato troops firing warding shots, presumably toward away people who tried to climb over the fed. that to take a shortcut into the airport. then we had the taliban outside of the main jackport
9:07 am
at the main drive into the, into the airport at the terminals. them also foreign warning shots, much less controlled fashion. so when we were driving out of the apple, we had a taliban father running in foreign warning shots as a behind him. it's a miracle. no one was heard. look a little ways away from the airport. we saw blood in the guy and a lot of lot of people gathered, as i say, the situation is incredibly hectic. we would like to show you pictures from the airport. unfortunately, we are unable to do so because it could jeopardize not any of the security of the, the nato troops, and the civilians that are inside the airport, but also future evacuation. because the, the russian side, it was a difficult securing this evacuation for russian aircraft arrived. today was a deal with the united states whereby the who they, who control the board let these rush in aircraft land to,
9:08 am
to evacuate russian passport holders. is this one of the conditions the americans had was new filming in the airport because obviously the taliban is all around the airport. the every single need to aircraft. it's taking off american aircraft, looted, but civilians with american citizen, europeans troops. they're all down the sides of, of taliban guns. the caliber wanted to cause trouble. they very well could. and in this case, the americans want to give them a schematic of what's inside the airport. so all the journalists have been a being a being that rule. but was about to say as we got further away from the airport, there was, there was much more order. so we weren't sort of thousands of people gathered at the gates or rushing towards the airport. things were much more car, most of the shops we saw open people out shopping, people are going to work a lot of traffic and not all of it. one way towards the airports. nevertheless,
9:09 am
things auto care. things are desperate for many people who have been unable to get out to the stage in protest at the british embassy at the american embassies, the other nato, country embassies. there are also people who are unable to get money out of the atm to pay for groceries to pay for, for whatever they need for basic necessities. obviously things just heck, because they were a few days ago, but he still renders a desperate situation here in capital. now. okay, well we know you're heading off to try and get more of those on told stories of what his life like there for the african people right now. okay. for the senior correspondent, right. garcia, thanks for updating us. here's another side to a billions of dollars worth of advanced weaponry and heavy armor is being abandoned in the country by the us and its partners. that's pretty or you see here, it shows a former nato bass and the pentagon rushes to retreat. the years president admit
9:10 am
that the success of the evacuation relies on taliban cooperation. police bargains 31st depends upon the tale bond continuing to cooperate and allow access to the airport for those who are trans, we're transporting out no disruption to our operation. in addition, i've asked the pentagon and the state department for contingency plans to adjust the time table should that become necessary? let me remind you that the deadline for the american withdrawal is the 31st of august. i can very my message again to the americans to evacuate all its allies by this time because they have the capability, they have planes, they have the airport, they must evacuate all the troops. and those people who are linked to for this and to 6 days to go to, despite the withdrawal being well underway, prominent us politicians and retired generals demanding the continuation of the 20 year campaign that but it seems the mainstream outlets that these people are being heard on or ignoring the fact that some have vested interest in companies profiting
9:11 am
from the war is donell quarter explains. continue the afghanistan, occupation calls to delay the pull out of us led coalition troops have hit the mainstream media. when the decision was announced, months ago, i said that i fear that we would come to regret this decision. and we already are. this again is a nightmare. when we were there, we had the cooperation of the afghans. we work with the military. there are a lot of partnerships and ball. this is a national security threat, or these just a bunch of overly patriotic americans. it's unlikely you see the taliban victory crashed the profit party of america's gigantic military industrial complex. and the mainstream media often omits that many overly jingle western military officials have investments in that very institution. take former us general j keen. he also happens to be the chair of the company that produces humvees and sits on the board
9:12 am
of another company that produces military equipment. so what you know, he thinks it was a bad idea to leave afghanistan. i think the administration made a terrible mistake and, and pull our troops out and, and given the talem on the opportunity to take the country over and, and now we're going to inherit the epicenter of radical islam. right inside of it inside about candice and it's going to become a more dangerous place. there's also retired us general david portray is a partner at a global private equity firm called k k r, which has assets in the u. s. defense sector. and richard hoss is a former white house adviser who sits on the board of the investment firm lazarus, a firm that also serves defense companies. and we can't forget former us defense secretary leon panetta, a senior counselor at beacon global strategy is hardly an unbiased party. another fare mention is florida republican mike waltz, who made up to $25000000.00 in profits. after selling a defense firm,
9:13 am
which has offices in afghanistan. the problem is terrorism, that happens and i can't stand, doesn't stay in afghanistan. we will see all kinds of 3.0. they are working closely with the taliban, and they do intend to attack. i'm a former secretary of state condo. liza rice offered her $0.02 on y. america's longest war was not long enough. 20 years may also not have been enough to consolidate all gains against terrorism and assure our own safety we and they needed more time. once again, rice's place on the board of c 3, a i, a defense contracting company is conveniently left out of her article with all these powerful officials having one foot in the capitalist pool and the other. and that of the u. s. government. it's not hard to imagine why endless war is a very lucrative business decision for some stock returns from 2001 to 2021 for government contracted arms. companies like lockheed martin and northrop grumman
9:14 am
totaled more than 1000 percent and wiki leaks, founder and whistleblower julian assange tried to warn the world about it years ago to use and then washed money out of the way out of the tax basis of european africa back into the head of a trend that is the goal. my goal is to have in local and for some reason the mainstream media doesn't seem to find it necessary to tell their viewers that the experts they invite to inform public opinion on the afghan war. have a very specific agenda of their own from sober reading to the scale of america's failure enough ganna stand has been revealed in 20 declassified documents published by the us national security archives. one shows the extent to which the calamity was consistently and deliberately hidden from the public back in 2002,
9:15 am
then defense secretary donald rumsfeld, was worried that the african mission was drifting. but never mentioned it publicly . rather i'll give it, there's no point in negotiating. what he said was the remnants of the taliban a more than a decade after that american diplomat had the same concerns. the 1st question of did we know what we were doing? i think the answer is no. if there was ever a notion of mission creep up against on, we went from saying that we will get rid of ok so they can threaten us to say we're going to end the taliban. then we said, we will get all the truth the tell about work with then further to have our exit strategy b. s. table government. and again, it's done. we have to say good enough is good enough. that's why we're there. 15 years later, back in 2011 julian song said the ultimate goal of the us military campaign in afghanistan was to create an endless war dot, a successful, one of wiki licks editor in chief, told me last hour. with the new documents vindicate the group leaks a decade ago,
9:16 am
to supported by all the revelations that came out of the documents by we can use 11 years ago. some of them, of course, went from earlier period ca, documents, diplomatic cables, military documents, it all pain the, the, the, through the true picture of what was going on. and i'm kind of from 11 years ago. and it was somehow didn't register the, the lie continued, and that is the, the most of pricing seen about the, the current events basically is the thing clearly may seem media cars come to record with this. how was it possible for 20 years to maintain the law? what was going on inside them? julianna's, and also said that the africa was being used to launder american and european monday. what. what did he mean by that? the trillion dollars plus the trillion dollars probably under estimate did
9:17 am
go into us or pocket the military industrial complex, the, the private contractors like dunkirk who were supposed to be training the outcome, police, etc. it was a massive flow of money that went into the wrong pocket. it could only be called corruption on a large scale. on top of that, of course there's a, the, the corruption inside the sun where basically money was used as carols on to, to pump on the fire. or there were no logs could on the fire, just to gasoline being pumped on. the fire that does not create a lasting bonfire. everybody knows that of it's just people fleeing afghanistan is creating a security nightmare for europe. because among those flaying the taliban, a convicted criminal delia deported by the u. back to afghanistan, along with suspects on various global security watch list. i was a subject that came up in talks earlier this wednesday between the russian and
9:18 am
austrian for ministers in vienna. despite foster has the 2nd biggest community of africans in europe, much more than other you states could only sweden having more than us. i think austria has shown a loss of solidarity with them. now we have many problems within our country. we are not interested in becoming a failed states. we also don't want africa understand to become a terror base. the illegal migration issue was oppressing one in europe and it has been for some time now. it's part of the consequences of what nato led by the americans have been doing in recent years. and as for the main takeaways, the u. s. can draw from what happened in afghanistan. it's very simple. the main conclusion is that one should not lecture anyone on how to live or enforce one's own views on others. we have seen how the americans have enforced their way of living on libya, syria, iraq, and afghanistan. they should mind their own business. i've listed for military campaigns that have resulted in nothing but a surge of terrorism and unprecedented drug trafficking,
9:19 am
while illegal migrants flooded into europe following nato's bombing of libya. the main conclusion is rather simple. here don't interfere in and other countries internal affairs and don't use force in violation of the un charter. meantime in the u. k, an afghan national on britain's no fly list made it on the country into the country on a military plane. he was declared though to be not a person of interest and was free to go. in france, police arrested one to 5 africans with an edge, links to the taliban that suspected fail to comply with the stay at home or to the other for under surveillance. and in germany, some previously deported afghans with criminal records managed to sneak back in via evacuation flight hungary for it passes, emphasize that it won't accept an unrestricted flow of african refugees because it won't let its people suffer from quote flor geopolitical decisions made by the us hungary states secretaries of the school that the chaos and i've got a sam probably could have been avoided. what we're seeing right now in capital,
9:20 am
in other parts of garrison, is frightening. and i think it could bring about an error in migration and international terrorism that we didn't want and perhaps could have avoided. we talked about some of the security concerns with charles schubert choose a forward british counter intelligence officer. he thinks that the chaotic situation in cobble could result in even more complications in the near future. some degree the concern is justified because often you've got a situation where g to the arctic situation on the ground. and we're talking around the ground around. i didn't start a couple of software that is taking place. not it means that got together with the problems that no doubt taking place in google haven't correct documentation. a lot of problems around the actual nice know fly list themselves. what today is attention many times in the past, for example, in actresses of those, but also the ease with which people can get run days. in any case,
9:21 am
it's not surprising that some cases have risen, and i think we can expect more to happen. this is, i'll say, all the way with a key vote in germany just over a month away. the opinion polls are showing an uncertain future for i'm going to merkel is chosen successor and also her policy with competitors surging ahead. we'll go over the numbers for you, with your correspondent, among all stories after this and the join me every 1st day on the alex simon show. and i'll be speaking to guess in the world, the politic sport business. i'm show business. i'll see you then. me this is your media reflection of reality.
9:22 am
in a world transformed what will make you feel safe for the tycer lation community? are you going the right way or are you being direct? what is truth? what is faith? in the world corrupted, you need to this end. ah, so join us in the depths will remain in the shallows, ah, in the following way, from afghanistan and the repercussions now for the 1st, on the 15 years, germany's social democrats, upholding ahead of anglo merkle, conservatives. she's stepping down soon and the number the head of next month,
9:23 am
selection of drawing a disconcerting picture for her chosen successor. as peter oliver explains, happy days for the social democrats in germany, they are top of the opinion balls in the country for the 1st time. in 15 years they lead the christie and democratic union christy and social union. the conservative union blocked by 23 points to 20 to the greens coming in in 3rd, in the most recent polling, it doesn't make good reading for the christian democratic duty when it comes to the opinions or public opinions on who should be the next chancellor. either in not metric, also good reading for the social democrats all i've shown the candidate coming out on top with 30 percent in 2nd place. there is an all in a book on 15, while way back is and lashes to of the christian democratic union. now he's been trying to put out some fires and do some, some face saving. he said that he's the man to look after both the environment and
9:24 am
jobs. these criticize the greens in the social democrats for overly politicizing. the climate crisis says you have to factor in social aspects when you said such big goals. and that's also my idea of what lies ahead of us. it's not about making the steel industry uncompetitive with more restrictions and having to relocate elsewhere. that would give us a good climate picture, a 6 percent less emissions, but no more jobs. the go mazda to transform the still industry, so that it uses green energy and becomes green itself. and that's what we need in the chemistry industry in the german automobile industry. for the greens and the social democrats say that mister lasha just isn't ambitious enough when it comes to climate issues. there's also been serious criticism heading the way all the conservative union coming into this election with party grandees wondering where it's headed is burning everyone on board the fire trucks. we have to tell the
9:25 am
germans what they will get if they vote for the cd used c s u and the federal elections. after years of the grand coalition, we have to press the bushel reset button for germany. instead, the election campaign in germany is rippling along the chancellor angle america will step down at this upcoming election up the navy, 16 years in charge. she seems relatively calm, heading into the vote. we are fighting all the parties fighting. we will work every day to get a good election result and not look every day at the polls. ultimately, it is the balance of voters in the ballad box of that count. not long to go now before germans go to the polls on the 26th of september to elect a new chancellor. those polls are pretty good for the social democrats right now, but those margins are incredibly fine. and you got a few weeks to be able to sort that out too. all right, that's the way it looks so far this wednesday from moscow i'll have your next
9:26 am
update. i'll to going underground next on the one. make sure, you know, board is blind to tease you emerge, we don't have authority, we go to the back seen the whole world leads to take action and be ready. people judge. 2 governors crisis we can do better, we should be better. everyone is contributing each in their own way. but we also know that this crisis will not go on forever. the challenges to response has been massive. so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we need together in
9:27 am
the the the the the, the with
9:28 am
i'm action or 10 senior watching, going underground. the team and i are away at the moment, but we'll be back for a new series on september the 8th until then we'll be playing some of your favorite episodes of this season coming up in the show is israeli software. bugging your phone, the editor in chief of wiki leaks, which 1st exposed spyware on android and apple phones tells us what we should do, what it means for journalism and updates us on the usa is collapsing espionage case against julian detained here in london. and did you make money other coded, we investigate our leads, have made billions from the global corona virus pandemic. alyssa, more coming up in today's going underground the 1st this week. so the mainstream media, so gold collectively wring their hands about private surveillance companies, up to revelations about the ledge. widespread reach of the so called pegasus spyware, developed by israeli surveillance firm in its own group. the delayed reaction from the media could arguably be linked to the demon zation of where helix founded
9:29 am
julian s. andre, according to the u. n. a still being tortured in h. m. p. bill marsh in london. but is this the latest example of what we're helix? we've been exposing where private surveillance for a decade. joining me now from reykjavik in iceland is where helix editor in chief christian robinson. christian, thanks so much for coming on. i'll get to whether i should throw my phone away in a 2nd and to your jail. co founder julian assange in a moment. but what do you make of all these journalists suddenly talking about an a so group, when, when you, when you were doing this, i don't know a decade ago, was it? yeah, i mean we did to point out the seriousness of this business to 10 years, almost 10 years. but i mean, i'm going to say, i'm important story and now i mean they do have evidence of wrongdoing. however, i mean, for those who have been following the industry for years and years and know that actually on december 1st, 2011,
9:30 am
we can publish internal documents exposing the incredible scope for these privatized by companies. and this sort of thing we're offering to this particular gm's and targeting activities and political opponents. and i'm general. so at that time, actually, if you go to the website website, we can sort, or you can reflect on that one wants to be described. there was exactly the same things that we have seen come to the surface and getting all the attention in 2011. when the duty on a silence was a long seen this publication. mother press conference at city university in that story got very little fraction that to me and i was very surprised at the time because it was such a strong revelation. strong story.
