we expected the situation to be desperate. herein this evil and we certainly weren't disappointed. it isn't quite the pandemonium. we saw the early days of this evacuation. so the mobs and the hordes crushing each other in a be to get to these crawford to flee the taliban to flee. i've got to stop things are a much more ordered. now. nevertheless, it is still very much desperate. as we descended down from the aircraft we were, we were greeted with with an air field that is listed with the shell casings, bullet casings as well as mt flashback. grenades here, gas, cat, this is the will to be news, sleepers shoes, close children's clothes, listed all over the place. one of the most striking things was also the barbed wire . it is, it is everywhere. i haven't seen bob was laid as high as it was. that is variable walls of bob was to keep people away from the field as we were driving out of the
9:03 pm
field. we had me the 2 meters when we saw people trying to rush the main gate and a tad about pfizer wildly firing boarding shot even behind his back was a miracle that no one was hurt. there were thousands of people, literally thousands of people. many of them young, many of them, evidently trying to use the opportunity to get out of of got to start. but among them elder people, people with families, children, women, but we're carrying, you know, baby's death desperate to get them out of the country. of the taliban ease ease being relentless, very harsh in keeping people away. as we drove further away from the field though it must be said that they were much more ord. shops were open business. his, we're open people walking around with with groceries, with, with food, with necessities doing about their lives, work, things were much less desperate. there was traffic, but wasn't as it was in the early days sort of one way towards the airport. but
9:04 pm
nevertheless, things are very much chaotic here. people are still getting used to the taliban, which barely a few months ago was the a, you know, the fringes of the country. and now in charge of the capital, people are desperate because they can't get money out of atm, the bank to shop many, we were many of the banks we were driving by the close data that is promising that they'll get the move and people be able to get money to pay for their lives, but so far that remains only improvement. so the situation here and capital is certainly very desperate at this top. russia has been going back to waiting people from cobble via the k o, strict and international airport for russian air force planes, a plan to rescue 500 people, including citizens of russia. ukraine going to the us, former soviet neighbor lucas tom. had other items are unhappy that were going
9:05 pm
home and children can do ready for school. i went to st. crow ship helping us in this situation because it's very difficult to get to the airport what we've done. we hadn't expected the evacuation to go this. well, it's been very good, crowded. it's usually taken 5 or 6 days to evacuate. we were told yesterday and today we're already on the plane. but i want to thank questions president and defense minister for taking us out of the dangerous place and bringing us to jacob . they fed us too many thanks to them as it's done. meanwhile, american troops of currently the largest president, had trouble therefore to meet what could be the last days of evacuations for going on. that's not about who control practically everything and fall from the hub. say, i've guns we've gathered that should return home. they are, they won't be allowed to leave any longer waddell's without seeing for the safety of those who stay. so when the thought about loaner rollout,
9:06 pm
evacuation of afghan nationals, the children we see here, could be among the last to make it out of the country. american troops are doing the best, attain them at the airport while they wait for their flights. well, lots of previous groups of african refugees who flown out still haven't reached their final destination. they've been transferred to us holding sites like this one and wait in while couple of men who kept his office throughout the taliban takeover said the master policy is a flock of punish refund in the hysteria that has been created around surrounding the departure of many people from up on the sun, this has created some sort of anxiety among the rest of the population because the country has been at war for 40 years. ironically, and know that there is no war. people are trying to leave because they have fears.
9:07 pm
what might happen in the future, and they're also living in 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, political course for the country is not known yet. that's why people are so anxious and confused, and they are very worried. right now, we don't have any government or any course of action. it will depend on the behavior of all of on, on how they deal with the liberties of the people, what the freedoms of people need, and have to enjoy their women's issues. girls going to schools administration being handled by professionals and by
9:08 pm
experts. these are all the things that people are waiting and watching your news. women's rights are one thing and pictures and advertising's or another think. so the total of one have announced officially at least, but they will wide by the law and sharia and islam has given rights to women. and according to the 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. and i've got to start 2nd largest city kandahar in the south of video. agency
9:09 pm
manage the film, the kind of posing, we seized weapons and vehicles had been discarded by retreating. nato forces earlier this month of billions of dollars worth of a devolved weaponry and heavy arm i have been abandoned in the country by the us on its partners. this video shows a former nato bass in the area of the pentagon, russia to retreat to the us. president says america on truck to finish its mission in. i've got to start while the end of this month to talk with whoever says different options are currently being discussed. fatah about have made clear that they have a strong interest in having a functioning airport. we and the rest of the intricate national community certainly have a strong interest in that, primarily for the purpose of making sure that anyone who wants to leave can leave pass the the 31st. and again, with regard to our own potential presence going forward after the 31st, we're looking at a number of options. let me remind you that the deadline for the american withdrawal is the 31st of august. i can vary my message again to the americans to
9:10 pm
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 despite the withdrawal being what underway, prominent us politicians, and retired generals at the morning, troops should remain, seems that mainstream out this broadcasting calls are ignoring the fact that some have a vested interest in the company's profiting from the war, the spend 2 decades that old 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 involved. this is a national security threat, or these just
9:11 pm
a bunch of overly patriotic americans. it's unlikely you see the taliban victory crashed the prophet 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. kean. he also happens to be the chair of the company that produces humvees and sits on the board of another company that produces military equipment. so wouldn't you know, he thinks it was a bad idea to leave afghanistan. i think the administration made a terrible mistake and, and pulling 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 canis. and it's going to become a more dangerous place. there's also retired us general david portray. it's a partner at a global private equity firm called k k r,
9:12 pm
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, which has offices in afghanistan. the problem is terrorism. that opens up the sand doesn't stay in afghanistan. we will see all kite, a 3.0. they are working closely with the taliban and they do and 10 to attack, eric and 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
9:13 pm
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 our article with all these powerful officials having one foot in the capitalist pool and the other in 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 totaled more than 1000 percent and wiki leaks, founder and whistleblower julian assange tried to warn the world about it years ago to use wash money out of the way out of the base of european africa back into the head of a try that in the goal. my goal is to have in looking
9:14 pm
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 of the scale of america failure and i've got a son has been revealed in 20 declassified documents published by the us national security. all caught, one shows the extent to which the calamity was consistently and deliberately hidden from the public. back in 2002, then defense secretary donald rumsfeld, was warry that the mission was drifting. you never though, mentioned it publicly, rather arguing there was no point in negotiating with the remnants of the taliban. and more than a decade later, an american diplomat had the same consent. 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, get this done. 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 that we
9:15 pm
will get all the truth the tell about work with then further to have in 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 or as we heard back in 2011, a saw your 3rd. the ultimate goal of the u. s. campaign in afghanistan was to generate massive profit for american defense companies. we can extend it through and she told my colleague column bray today, that the new documents vindicate the groups leaks of a decade ago to supported by all the revelations that came out of the documents published by week at least 11 years ago. some of them, of course, went from earlier period ca, documents, diplomatic cables, military documents, it all pain the, the, the truth that drew a picture of what was going on and i'm from 11 years ago. and it was somehow didn't register the, the lie continued. and that is the,
9:16 pm
the most of pricing seen about the, the current events basically is. and the thing clearly may seem media cars come to record with this. how was it possible for 20 years to maintain the like what was going on inside them? julianna's, until so said that the africa was being used to launder american and european money . what did he mean by that? the trillion dollar plus the trillion dollars probably under estimate did go into us 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 can only be called corruption on a large scale. on top of that, of course, there's the, the, the corruption inside the sun where basically money was used as carols on to,
9:17 pm
to pump on the fire. they were no loves good on the fire, just to gasoline being pumped on the tire that does not create a lasting bonfire. everybody knows that of the 3rd people currently fleeing. i'm going to thought creating a security nightmare for europe because among those trying to leave the convicted criminals earlier, the ported by the u back. so i've got to start along with suffix on various global security watch list is a topic that came up in talks on wednesday between the russian and austrian foreign ministers in vienna. they have to fight chris foster has the 2nd biggest community of africans in europe, much more than other you states with only sweden having more than us. i think the austria has shown lots 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. we have seen how the americans have enforced their way of living on libya, syria, iraq,
9:18 pm
and afghanistan. they should mind their own business. i've listed for military campaigns that have resulted in nothing but a surge of terrorism, an unprecedented drug trafficking, while illegal migrants flooded into you're following nato's bombing of libya. the main conclusion is rather simple here, don't interfere and, and other countries internal affairs and don't use force in violation of the un charter. illustrating some of those security concerns and africa. national vision is no flawless, might into the country on a military plane. it was declared though not to be a person of interest and was free to go. in france, police arrested one of 5 afghans with a link to the taliban. suspect had failed to comply with a stay at home on the other 4 or on the surveillance. and in germany, some previously defaulted, afghans with criminal records managed to sneak back in via evacuation flight hungary, for its part as emphasize, it won't be accepting an unrestricted flow of african refugees. and it says it
9:19 pm
won't let its people suffer from floor geopolitical decisions made by the u. s. hungary state secretary added that the chaos and i've got to start probably could have been avoided. what we're seeing right now in capital, 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. meanwhile, turkey has been reinforcing its border with iran. fear with an influx of african migrants took a show, thirties are expanding the existing concrete wall to stretch some 240 kilometers by the end of this year. border areas not covered being both in blood ditches bob's why and patrols. last week, president red, one worn turkey would not become europe refugee warehouse. somebody home for more than 3 and a half 1000000 syrian refugees. turkish political, i list on all, eric told us america strong to pass off its responsibility for the african crisis
9:20 pm
to other nations. this is a world wide international problem just because we are the, the nearest, physically, the nearest country. that the african refugees seek refuge to. doesn't necessarily should mean that we should be the only one dealing with turkey has been housing millions of syrian refugees. now adding more to this, it's really hard to bear with us is undoubtedly the only source of what's going on . and that can stand right now. they've created the best and that now they're trying to avoid the consequences of that. they have all ready started, you know, looking out people afghans to african countries and they have also in the past week or so have leagues, i'm calling for statements to the media from the back channels that the cherokee may, may accept. most of these refugees on behalf of to us and the, the turkish, 1st of all, research president, the former, this, or everybody has said, you know,
9:21 pm
as totally was a kansas and they had never heard of it. the baltic states lithuania has infuriated china black hosing up to taiwan, which by jing, considers its territory. united states is also weighing in all the different expire, but china's foreign minister warned us shouldn't meddle in other countries affairs, to the ins and outs of the diplomatic spent between china. unless you a new or very clear. i would like to reiterate that china has the right to respond with resolute, unnecessary actions to provoke, to move the seriously infringe upon china sovereignty and territorial integrity. have the solar message for the us. china wound co us any country and won't be coerced by any country either. the u. s. had been to keep the label of coercive diplomacy for it. know what that will lead them back. so that way near agreeing to let taiwan set up a representative office in the capital village recognition the noise shining with
9:22 pm
its long regard to the island, which is about 160 kilometers east of mainland china, breakaway province. and under its sovereignty. in response to the move, sean is demanded. lithuania is a master leave by jing and recalled its own invoice from illness. professor benjamin show in shanghai war and the us is a long track record of ranking its promises to allies if they aren't within its core fear of interest. and lucy, i know they did not. who has, who high to the one to provoke china? yes, no boundary dispute with china only has the can nomic benefits were trying to apparently, did us trying to maximize the use of is less and less strategic partners can use to afford competition. we push ya by crossing day, but tonight issue of china, which is the one china, peaceable to for any we would then need to completely rely on the us and its allies for economic benefit to us wants to have full control of luthey and yet to fulfill its strategic needs, we've russia,
9:23 pm
so we all see that the u. s. trail is almost all the time to sustain long last to your political influence of countries so far away. i think area such as pie was to see that the u. s. is not as powerful as one ford to be able to win a war or influence your politics far away from the us. the u. s. has failed. so many of these allies make new tons of from the support open night for what effort countries not of the court interest of the u. s. coast time as german chancellor is almost up. but if i chosen success thinks he's inheriting rock solid public support, he may want to avoid the pulse in the papers. the 1st time in 15 years, the dominant coalition party is behind you to all of us explaining 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 christy and democratic union christine social union. the conservative union block by 23 point to 22,
9:24 pm
the greens coming in in 3rd. and 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 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 jobs. these criticize the greens and the social democrats for overly politicizing. the climate crisis says you have to factor in social aspects when you sent 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
9:25 pm
elsewhere. that would give us a good plan, a picture and 6 percent less submission, but no more job, not to go much to transform the still industry, so that green energy and becomes green itself. and that's what we need in the chemistry industry in the german automobile, in the hospital for the greens and the social democrats say the mr. last year just isn't vicious 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 in the fire trucks. we have to tell the 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. but chancellor angle america will set down at this upcoming election up to nearly 16 years in charge. she seems
9:26 pm
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 ballot 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 folks are pretty good for the social democrats right now, but those margins are incredibly fine. going to ground coming away just if you it's time for you gave us a to cause a report. we're back in office with the latest you want us again that the who want to make sure you know board is under blind number
9:27 pm
emerge. we don't have authority, we don't actually, the whole world needs to take action and be ready. people are judge, you know, come 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 challenge is paid for the response has been massive. so many good people are helping us. it makes us feel very proud that we are together now. well, america is crazy frat party in afghanistan is over 20 years, leaving behind quite a mass. the
9:28 pm

what it means for journalism and updates us on the usa is collapsing espionage case against julian assad retained here in london. and did you make money out of coven? we investigate how leads have made billions from the global corona virus pandemic. alyssa, more coming up in today's going underground. but 1st, this week, so the mainstream media so called collectively wring their hands about private surveillance companies of revelations about the alleged widespread reach of the so called pegasus spyware. developed by israeli surveillance from n s o group. the delayed reaction from the media could arguably be linked to the demon zation of where helix found a julian hassan recording to view and is still being tortured. in h m p. bell marsh in london. but is this the latest example of what we're healing, korean exposing, were 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
